Austin T3, Inc. was founded in September 2002 by Chrissie Novak and Maurice Culley. The original goal was to provide clinics for athletes wanting to learn more about the sports in triathlon (swim, bike and run).  In October 2002, T3 began the first stroke and technique clinic with only 7 swimmers.  Since then, a year-round training group with over 150 current athletes has been established to complement the various clinics, and Austin T3 Coaches have worked with over 1600 athletes in the T3 programs.  Austin T3 is now one of the largest and fastest growing training teams in Central Texas.
