About

The Fighting Koalas Triathlon Team is an age group and junior triathlon team designed for athletes of all ages and abilities. The Fighting Koalas were created by Mat Reid in January 2008 in Waterdown/Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The Koalas have since grown to include teams in Burlington (Sept 2008), Edmonton (October 2008), Milton (November 2008), Niagara (April 2009) and Kitchener-Waterloo (Sept 2009).

The Fighting Koalas are a coach driven triathlon team owned and coached by local certified coaches.

The Fighting Koalas concept is to give each athlete the tools and knowledge to achieve personal bests in the sport, while creating a social atmosphere for the athletes to build relationships with likeminded individuals around the community.

The Fighting Koalas also strive to give aspiring coaches the chance to build their own team in their community. Full and ongoing training is given to each coach to ensure consistency in services and protocol. Each coach and Fighting Koala team will have its own unique style within the organization.

Together the Fighting Koala teams strive to build what has yet to be accomplished anywhere else in the world. A triathlon team that is known around the planet, with a triathlon franchise in every major city in North America.
