Brief Team History:
Team B got it’s start back in 2008 with just 3 athletes. Fairly soon after, I (Coach Jeff) took on the job of coaching a group of triathletes at the local JCC in Scarsdale, and also started a beginner tri program in Mamaroneck. During the past 6 years, Team B has grown from 3 to 30+ athletes with outreach to even more through swim programs and clinics. We also have Westchester’s very first Youth & Junior Tri Program(Team Barracuda) that I’ve been running for the past 3 years.
What are some recent exciting achievements the team has made?
2014 was a great year for Team B! We had 6 of our athletes qualify for USAT Nationals, and another two complete their first Ironman distance race up in Lake Placid. Team Barracuda also started a performance team for young athletes that want to be more competitive.
What sets this team apart from others?
Team B caters to ALL Levels of athlete. We don’t solely focus on Ironman distance races. Instead we focus on the Multisport Lifestyle which includes the whole family; how to enjoy a sport you can do for the rest of your life and living healthier!

Do any of your members follow a strict nutrition plan? If so, what?
Since everyone is different, Team B doesn’t have a strict nutrition plan. However, as the Head Coach, I am constantly recommending quality nutrient dense foods with simple ingredients to maximize health and performance. Amrita is a perfect choice for Team B!
Are any members plant-based? If so, why did they make the dietary change?
Yes, we have at least two with a few more seriously considering it! A mixture of ethical and athletic reasons lead to their plant-based dietary choice.
