Triathlon is the Emerging Sport for Women

Triathlon, the fastest growing sport in the U.S. Olympic Movement, received overwhelming approval from the NCAA Division I Legislative Council and NCAA Division II and III schools to be the next Emerging Sport for Women, creating new opportunities within the Olympic pipeline for student-athletes.

The vote was 95 percent in favor as announced during the council’s session as part of the 2014 NCAA Convention in San Diego, Calif. The vote was 96 percent in favor for Division II schools, and 93 percent in favor for Division III. Triathlon will be added as a fall sport, and athletic departments will be able to form teams and compete at the varsity level beginning in August 2014.
Thank you for your support,
