Do you love Triathlon as much as we do?
In 2012, Tri-Alliance launched its Ambassador Program – a chance for a male and female athlete to become a Tri-Alliance Ambassador for the upcoming Triathlon Season and share their experience, support and encouragement with fellow team mates.
To be an ambassador for Tri-Alliance, you don’t have to be the best athlete with the best results, you just have to be dedicated, consistent and openly support the TA Way.
Tri-Alliance Ambassadors will display characteristics such as positive and motivational attitude, consistently train and attend Tri-Alliance Coached sessions, encourage and support fellow athletes and have a genuine and strong passion for Tri-Alliance and the sport of Triathlon. In return, Tri-Alliance in conjunction with our partners, Mizuno Running, Giant South Yarra and Orca, will support YOU and your training through apparel and product support.

Tri Alliance Ambassador Program
Words from previous ambassadors:
“How quickly a year can pass, as we approach a new season and many long course races it also comes time to pass on the role of Tri-Alliance Male Ambassador. It was such an honour to be named and, over the past 12 months I have worked hard to make the Tri-Alliance team proud. I have spent time with the newbies and given advice, spent time not only racing but also cheering my fellow team members on (not to mention a running squad photo shoot). A lot of these things I would never have had the confidence to do without being given this important role. I feel it has not only made me a better athlete but has made me grow as a person. I will always fly the Tri-Alliance flag unofficially but for that short time it was nice to be recognised.” Andy Wood-rich
“It was a tremendous honour to be chosen as the inaugural female ambassador for Tri-Alliance Victoria. I was always happy to wear the TA colours and represent the squad at various sporting events, but being ambassador just made it that little bit more special. Of course it was great to get the free uniforms and the discounts – who wouldn’t want that! But it also made me a little more conscious that I was representing the TA brand.” Lisa MacFarlane
The finer details
The Tri Alliance Ambassador Program runs from November – October each season. The Ambassadors will be chosen by a panel of Tri-Alliance Coaches based on the above criteria.
