How to Become a Member
Being a part of the Texas A&M Triathlon team is an experience that few will ever forget. We are a group of Aggies that includes everyone from first time competitors to elite athletes racing on a national and international level. As we step up to the starting line as individuals, the tradition that bonds every Aggie together allows us to celebrate the achievements we all make as a team. Hearing “Gig’ Em!” and “Whoop!” constantly as a motivator from the crowd pushes us all to compete at our best with pride only Texas A&M Triathletes can understand.
