What kind of athlete is Zoot looking for?

We are looking for triathletes who enjoy the journey and are passionate about triathlon. Whether you race a sub 10 hour Ironman or you are looking to complete your first Sprint Distance tri, it’s showing up and exuding a positive attitude that counts. 

Do I need to be fast or podium to on the team?

No, you do not need to be speedy fast or place on the podium in races. It is more important to us at Zoot that you love the sport of triathlon and want to share your passion for the sport with others. TEAM ZOOTERS encourage others on and off the course! 

How big is Team Zoot?

TEAM ZOOT has 10 different regions across the USA with a captain in each region. The captain’s job in the region is to bring members together to train, race, share information, and have fun together! Each region will have approximately 200-500 members. We believe having larger numbers will create a stronger community on and off the race course. 

Who are the Team Zoot Partners?

Check out our partners tab for information on current team partners.

 Can I be on another brands triathlon team?

We ask if you want to represent Zoot, to only represent Zoot. We love competing against other branded teams!

Can I be on a local triathlon team/club?

Yes, we encourage you to be involved in your local community. We ask that when you race outside of your tri club events, that you wear your TEAM ZOOT kit.
