Seth Davis
Otter Tri
San Rafael, CA

Otter Tri is geared towards youth, junior, junior elite, and U19 athletes who are interested in and have a passion for the sport of triathlon.

Our first priorities are fun and safety.

Athletes will receive training schedules, supervised group training, and race day guidance.  Practices will focus on technique and skill development in a group setting.

Our goal is to develop young athletes in a team atmosphere safely without risking injury, overtraining or burnout.  We believe our athletes should participate in other sports and we desire to work hand in hand with other athletic teams in our community to build well rounded athletes while instilling lifelong values.

Youth, Junior, Junior Elite & Collegiate.
