Our team is open to all registered Stanford Students (undergraduate and graduate/professional). We practice at all levels of seriousness and ability: complete beginners, elite athletes, swimmers, bikers, runners, and casual social trainers are all encouraged to check out the team.

Unfortunately, due to Stanford's regulations, we cannot accept non-students as full team members. However, if you are an alum or stanford affiliate and want  to have access to some of the benefits of our community, please consider Friends of the Team status.

How to join

NOTE: For liability purposes, step 1 must be completed before attending ANY AND ALL practices.

1. Register for the team through the Stanford Club Sports website here (or search "Stanford Club Sports Registration" and go to Triathlon). Even if you are just taking the team for a test drive, you must do this for liability purposes. The concussion baseline must be completed. Use code SUTriathlon to access the baseline on the HitCheck app. 

2. Fill out the team roster form (here) 

3. Join our mailing list (details below)

  •  This is used for major announcements & weekly schedule updates, but most other communication happens through the team Slack workspace. You will be added to the active members channel in Slack when you pay dues.


4. Request to join the Slack workspace (here) 

5. Pay dues (after the trial period ends, information will be sent out about how to pay). 

Getting Started


To learn more about the team, show up to a workout and introduce yourself! Practice times and locations will be sent out from for the first 2 weeks as free trial period for anyone interested in joining! Look for one of our officers if you have any questions.

After the trial period is over, all athletes are required to pay dues before attending any practices, and we will send practices through our active members channel and email list.

Athletes who want to take advantage of our race subsidies and sponsorship benefits will have to complete (easy and fun) member responsibilities.



Dues are not, under any circumstances, refundable. This includes injuries or any other unforeseen circumstances.

We offer a two-week free trial period at the beginning of each quarter to allow new members to try out the team for free. After this period, all athletes must pay dues to attend practice.

  • Academic year: $125 per quarter.

  • Summer: $60.

Member Responsibilities


In order for our team to function with the limited resources we have as a club team, we depend on every member to spend time volunteering for the team outside of practice. To qualify for race subsidies and our sponsorship deals, we require all team members to do the following:

1. Sign up for at least four hours of volunteer shifts for Stanford's Reunion Homecoming in October. Every year we volunteer at Stanford's Reunion Homecoming as a way to give back to The Stanford Fund (TSF) for their financial support of our team.


2. Volunteer at our home race, Treeathlon. Team members are expected to spend ALL DAY Saturday and ALL DAY Sunday of Treeathlon weekend (usually the first weekend of March) volunteering at the race course in Redwood City. Treeathlon is our biggest fundraiser of the year and would not be possible without help from our members. All members will work with their team leader to accomplish all tasks needed to be done before race weekend. Team leaders and their groups will be assigned in the spring. 

3. Sign up for an additional timing shift (i.e. helping out with other sports teams) if you are planning to race Nationals. Opportunities will be posted.

Friend of the Team Status


For Stanford-affiliated non-students (alums, postdocs,  faculty, staff,...) we are debuting a new option.  Friend of the Team status gets you:

  • Access to our training plan on Training Peaks

  • Access to all non-coached workouts and pickup workouts organized by team members. Our regularly-scheduled non-coached workouts usually include 1-2 trainer workouts on weekday evenings, and long runs and rides on the weekend. Team members frequently organize ad-hoc swims, rides, and runs via Slack.

  • Our team slack channel, useful for for setting up workouts with other team members and participating in our community.


This status does NOT grant access to coached workouts or coaching from our staff; we cannot offer this due to limitations from Stanford.

Dues are $60/quarter; $30 for the summer. Send an email to the current president, administrative vice-president, and/or financial officer if you are interested in this option.
