Welcome to the Yale Triathlon Club! We are an all-inclusive group of undergraduate and graduate students who enjoy the sport of triathlon. We strive to create an environment where athletes of all skill levels can receive professional coaching and training in the sport they love. We also work hard to make an otherwise very expensive and elite sport affordable and accessible to students. Join us for fun swim/bike/run practices - no previous experience needed!



 The Yale Triathlon Club was founded in fall 2004 by Peter Chiu ’08 and Christopher Connelly ‘06 as the first intercollegiate club sport triathlon team in the Ivy League. The team currently competes in the Northeast Collegiate Triathlon Conference’s fall season, consistently ranking in the top ten. We also aim to send athletes to compete at collegiate nationals in April. Our membership continues to grow.


1) To fill the need for a uniquely structured sport activity that is competitive, recreational, and instructional in nature.

2) To provide a learning experience through student involvement in fund raising, organization, administration, budgeting, leadership, and scheduling, in addition to athletic skill in triathlon.


The Yale Triathlon Team offers the advantages of student leadership, flexibility, and non-regimentation. Club privileges include use of the Yale name, a small budget and athletic facilities when available. The Yale Triathlon Team is supervised by the Athletic Department, but the day-to-day operations are run by club-nominated student officers. These functions include scheduling practices and matches, contacting trainers and referees, arranging transportation and budgeting.  Our professional coach, Clay Tebbetts, provides training advice and coaches athletes on their technique.
