In the fall of 2013, QT2 Systems will be accepting applications for it's coached and dedicated, competitive, professional and age group triathletes for our 2014 QT2 Systems Sponsored Triathlon Team:
Team Benefits (included with membership fee):
Typical Team Commitments for Age Group Elite/Elite Teams:
There are two enrollment/application periods, based upon the team you are applying for. Please note what is required for submission to the QT2 Team Manager, Christine Kropelnicki (email@example.com).
Elite Team Description and Criteria:
The Elite Team is for those QT2 One-on-One or Mission coached athletes who have achieved top-level success in triathlon. For both men and women, this is defined by two finishes, within the past year, that were within 15% of the first place overall male or female finisher, respectively, at any race with a prize purse totaling, or exceeding, $5,000 (USAT cut-off for professional prize money only which attracts a strong PRO field). This result must be achieved on the same course and on the same day as the overall winner (for these purposes, "winner" is defined as the first overall male and female finishers, as acknowledged by race management in the final race results). Alternatively, any athlete in possession of a Pro/Elite license is automatically accepted, assuming fulfillment of the Team Criteria, listed below. In addition to those benefits mentioned above, all Elite Team athletes receive a 10% discount on all QT2 coaching services, can utilize our industry relationships to garner individual, more comprehensive sponsorship packages, where appropriate, and receive top-level exposure to, and benefits from, the team's sponsors, including cash bonuses. The 2013 Elite Team will have no cap on the number of members.
This is a submission based process (by email to Chrissie). Please include your qualifying races, under the 15% rule, along with clearly identified times for you and the winner (please include winner's name), as well as a direct link to online results.
Age Group Elite Team Description & Criteria:
The Age Group Elite Team is for those QT2 One-on-One or Mission coached athletes who have dedicated themselves to achieving top-level age group success in triathlon. For both men and women, this is defined by a finish, within the past year, that was within 10% of the first place finisher in your age group and gender, at any race with a prize purse totaling, or exceeding, $5,000. This result must be achieved on the same course, and on the same day, as the age group winner (for these purposes, "winner" is defined as the first male and female finisher in your age group, as acknowledged by race management in the final race results). All Age Group Elite Team athletes receive high level benefits from the team's sponsors. The intent of the age group elite team is to present talented male and female athletes across as many age groups as possible. The 2013 Age Group Elite Team will have no cap on its number of members.
This is a submission based process (by email to Chrissie). Please include your qualifying race, under the 10% rule, along with clearly identified times for you and the winner of your age group (please include AG winner's name), as well as a direct link to online results.
Advanced Team Description & Criteria:
The Advanced Team is for all QT2 coached athletes. This team has open enrollment throughout the year. Advanced Team members have access to the QT2 team forum and events throughout the year including race gatherings, race breakfasts, periodic social events, and the Team Holiday party. Advanced Team members also receive sponsor benefits.
This is a submission based process (by email to Chrissie). All athletes who apply for the Age Group Elite or Elite Teams who do not qualify, will automatically be invited to join the Advanced Team. There are no unique criteria other than those listed below.
Applicants of All Teams Must Meet the Following Criteria:
Note: QT2 has the right to accept or deny any application at its discretion. For Age Group Elite and Elite Team applicants that have had an extreme event, such as injury or pregnancy, that did not allow them to meet the criteria within the past year, please submit application for review by QT2 team management. In addition, performance criteria may be reduced, to meet team membership needs during the review process, so if you are within 3% of the criteria, please apply!
The final QT2 Age Group Elite and Elite Teams will be announced to applied athletes during mid-October, with deposits due at that time. Final team sponsorship benefits, athlete commitments, and associated team costs will be presented in athlete contracts, to be sent out during mid-December. The expected annual team membership fee will be $300-$340 with a 25-35% discount for accepted Age Group Elite Team members, and a 60-70% discount for Elite Team members. Note, QT2 One-on-One athletes also receive a 10% discount on team fees.
