I just moved from NYC and have never done a tri. I've missed the deadline for the NTP. Because I'm being on programs is it possible to receive a training regiment tailored similar to NTP so I may participate in a sprint tri in another state. If not would it be a faux pas to join the Olympic program without having done a sprint. I just like actual programs until I get the hang of this.

Thanks

Hey Maurice!

You definitely do not have to do a sprint race before you do an Olympic-distance race, in fact, many people in NTP are doing Olympic-distance races as their first race. If that's something you think you might want to do, *definitely* sign up for ODTP!

Cheers, Abby

Unfortunately, you have to have prior triathlon experience to sign up for the ODTP.
