Zoot is opening up the application process and is ready to welcome triathletes of all levels. This year, it’s all about Ohana.
Carlsbad, Calif. – With 2018 just around the corner, and new ownership in place, Zoot prepares to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Team Zoot, with growth and a new mission. First established in 2008, Team Zoot aims to represent triathletes of all skills levels and abilities from around the world. New owner, Shawn O’Shea, doubles down on Zoot’s commitment to creating an inclusive space for triathletes saying, “Recommitting to the sport of triathlon means recommitting to the athletes, putting them first. We are excited to add new, energetic people to our team.”
Moving into this anniversary year, Team Zoot will be welcoming athletes who exemplify the values of the brand. “Team Zoot is about Ohana. From beginner triathletes to seasoned Kona qualifiers, Zooters are a friendly group who train and race hard but also enjoy the journey. If you’re the kind of athlete who thanks volunteers on race day, smiles, and even laughs when the going gets tough, then you have what it takes to be a part of the team,” says O’Shea.
Team Zoot’s longest-serving ambassador and captain of the Southwest region, Bryan Dunn, explains what makes being a part of Team Zoot different, “Triathlon can be a very lonely sport. We all spend hours alone training. Being part of Team Zoot can give any athlete a broader sense of community and an opportunity to interact with others who are working for the same goals and understand the struggles attendant with that.”
Age group and “Team Captain” positions will be open during the application process for the 2018 season. As a member of Team Zoot, athletes will have the opportunity to purchase the 2018 Team Zoot package that will include a custom tri kit, transition bag, visor, and swag bag, as well as exclusive shopping opportunities, discounts on in-line gear, deals from partner brands, and more.
