Tri Faster, LLC and Head Coach Lauren Jensen is looking to hire an additional Assistant

position that operates out of Greenfield High School in Greenfield, WI. In the summer there are also outdoor practices at Wilson Pool in Milwaukee, WI and Tri Faster Open Water Swim workouts at Little Muskego Lake in Muskego, WI.
Program Overview
• Mission statement -­ Tri Faster provides professional coaching to competitive
swimmers, triathletes, endurance athletes and fitness minded individuals of all
ability levels in both group and individual settings. We believe in creating a
welcoming and fun workout climate where individuals can connect with their inner
athlete, exceptional coaches, like-­minded individuals who want more out of life,
and ultimately with their own personal goals.
• Tri Faster Masters Swim started in 2012 at Greenfield High School one day per
week, and initially primarily served triathletes. It has grown to three days per
week and now also serves competitive swimmers, fitness swimmers, and
beginners. The majority of swimmers are adults 18 or older, but we occasionally
serve some younger, serious minded high school swimmers.
• The Tri Faster Masters Swim program prides itself on being inviting and
welcoming. We are the most beginner friendly Masters Swim group in
Southeastern Wisconsin as our pre-­requisite is simply that swimmers can
complete one length of the pool. With eight lanes available and two on-­deck
coaches, Tri Faster Masters can readily serve the range of abilities from
beginners through former competitive swimmers and all levels of endurance
athletes.
