Trisutto Coaching Certification

My goal is to make the training methodologies that have helped so many athletes become Olympic, World and Ironman Champions available to all members of the triathlon public.

Brett Sutton

Trisutto.com is committed to providing our athletes with the world's best triathlon coaching service. This means the recruitment and development of the world's best coaches. In pursuit of this goal we have created an official platform so that all our future coaches have a comprehensive training, learning and program database.

Here you will learn the approach and training philosophies of triathlon's most successful coaching methodology.

Coaching means a lifelong commitment to learning and improving ones skills and goes beyond basic online learning. As such, the Trisutto.com certification program involves three key aspects:

1) Online Learning Module

You will learn the Coaching Methodology and approach that has produced Ironman, World and Olympic Champions. A comprehensive 20 module course that takes you through all aspects of triathlon and performance coaching.

2) Compulsory Mentorship Period with Senior Trisutto Coach

All coaches must complete a mentorship / apprenticeship period with a senior coach. Coaches maintain weekly contact with their mentor in person, or by email or Skype electronically. As part of their accreditation coaches need to supply a 3 month training program either week by week, previous to or after their athlete has completed the workouts. Backgrounds (age, time in sport, achievements, ability level) of the athlete need to be included plus training goals.

Please use our mentor coaches as guides for feedback on your programs and the improvement of all-round coaching ability.

3) Compulsory On Deck Practical Coaching Experience

Attend 2 x 6 day camps on deck with Head Coach Brett Sutton. Attend every workout, experience Trisutto.com coaching methods applied to elite and age group athletes. This is a practical application of the training material covered during the 12 week training and mentoring period.

Coaches who complete the 12 week instruction and mentoring period, as well as attend both practical 6 day camps graduate as Trisutto Coaching Certified coaches, and may have the option to coach through the Trisutto.com platform, as well as to be coaches of race teams ‘powered by Trisutto.com Coaching’.
