The University of Arizona TriCats, founded in the late 1990's, is a team of elite and amateur triathlon and multisport athletes at the University of Arizona. TriCats is comprised of nearly 100 competitive undergraduate and graduate student-athletes attending the University of Arizona. The student-athletes come from a broad variety of backgrounds, be it high school athletics, collegiate athletics, or even no athletic background at all. The team is very welcoming and accommodating and has spots from the beginner to the professional that can be filled. TriCats has a quest to become the best, most recognizable triathlon and multisport club team not only in Arizona, but in the Southwest, and to represent the University of Arizona annually at the USAT Collegiate National Championship, where we have a consistent goal of placing top-10 in the nation. In addition to the athletic side of triathlon and multi-sport, our team also takes pride in its strong social component, which involves community outreach and assistance, social gatherings, and much more.
