Announcing OTTER Tri Team




I am thrilled to announce the launch of the OTTER TRI Team!  

Visit: for the most up to date information.  


After several hurdles related to changes and Hurricane Harvey, we are looking to begin with the bike and run segments:  

Saturday 23 September. 

Practices will be T/TH/SA.   On these days, practices will encompass bike and run skills and safety.  


At this time, we are only able to offer the swim progression in a private (up to small group of 3).   


Our practices will conclude for the winter months 15 October after the Try Andy’s Tri, and will resume in January for the 2018 season.  All levels and abilities are welcome.  


The following describes the team levels, fees and expectations.
