At MACH 5 RACING, we are passionate about coaching kids! Our coaching approach is geared toward elevating triathletes to the next level of performance while maintaining a balance and having fun! We have a year-round USA Triathlon High Performance Team that consists of a Youth and Junior Elite Team (ages 12-19) and a Youth Development Team (ages 9-15). Our Team is standard-based and requires an individual try-out to determine acceptance and team placement. Our Team is based out of the Woodlands, TX, but we have athletes come from all over the Greater Houston area as well as some who are coached remotely from out-of-state.
Head Coach Michelle LeBlanc has a passion for working with youth and junior athletes and has coached one of the top-ranked high performance USAT youth and junior triathlon teams the last five years. Our Team is ranked in the Top Ten High Performance Teams in the Nation.
