Perks & Guidelines
Applications for the 2020 team open on October 7, 2019.
There will be no cost associated with applying for, or joining, the Baucco Squad in 2020. If you're accepted for the 2020 season, you will receive all membership perks and discounts. Even though spots on our team roster are limited, we encourage everyone to apply.
Criteria for Picking Team Members
- Athletes that are picked for the team do not need to be the fastest or most elite athletes. We claim members from beginners to Kona qualifiers.
- We are looking for members who take the sport seriously, but they do so with a fun-loving, positive attitude.
- We are looking for members that want to support their teammates through our online community, and/or at team events around the world.
- Members will receive discounted coaching / training plans from AJ Baucco Coaching.
- Members will receive discounts, ranging from 10% off to 50% off, on products from a long list of industry partners.
- Members will have the chance to win prizes from our industry partners through monthly team contests.
- Members will have access to an exclusive team camp in Boulder, Colorado. We will bring our members together for group workouts, educational seminars, social activities (read: beer mile), and of course, a big party to end the weekend!!!
- Members will have access to activities planned around both local and national events in 2020. This is an excellent opportunity to meet other team members in person and race alongside them.
- Members will have private access to the team website. Each athlete can create a profile, share their race schedule, add their race results, share race blogs, upload pictures, and interact with other members.
- Members will have private access to the team mobile app. Available for download in the App store, members can communicate with each other, plan meetups at races, share pictures, and more.
- Members will have private access to the team forum. This is the perfect place to seek encouragement from team members, brag about your accomplishments, get inspired by other team members, or just share a laugh with like-minded individuals.
- Members will get access to exclusive team gear. This includes cycling gear, running gear, casualwear and more.
- Members will have exclusive access to pro meet & greets throughout the year.
- Wear the Gear - we want to see everyone out there on race day wearing the 2020 team gear proudly.
- Social Media - we don’t require our athletes to do anything on social media, but if our athletes can follow/like and engage with our partners, it will only help us get better deals for everyone in the future.
- Website/Forum - create profiles, keep the race schedule up-to-date, log race results and interact with your fellow team members. The more our athletes share and engage with us, the better we can promote everyone and brag when you do well.
- Partners - we don't expect everyone to sell their current equipment for our partners products, but if you are in the market for something new, we would like you to consider working with the companies that have invested in us.
- Be Respectful - athletes chosen for the Baucco Squad are brand ambassadors and should behave accordingly. Any action that may negatively affect the integrity of the brand (i.e. doping) is cause for termination from the team. Just don't do anything that AJ wouldn't do!
