In 2014, professional triathlete, AJ Baucco, created the Baucco Squad: an age group triathlon team that was open to athletes of all ages and ability levels. When the original team launched, the triathlon landscape was dominated by age group teams that cared more about "being sponsored" than having fun. The Baucco Squad set out to change that standard. Since the inception of the Baucco Squad, there has never been any room for elitism in our ranks. We claim members from beginners to Kona qualifiers. Our members -- which are spread across the entire world -- train together, race together, support each other, and of course, celebrate after every finish line -- the way the triathlon gods always intended!
