Since 2002, Elite Triathlon Performance Australia has transformed itself from a sole trader, operating with a handful of personal clients to a company that employs six staff who coordinate three venues and service approximately 150 athletes. ETPA offers email based training programs, venue based group training programs, online customer interface, online product sales and a well-defined triathlon and multisport coaching network with access to the world's leading specialist providers.

The ETPA values of innovation, trust, relationships, and active learning are fundamental to the success of our athletes.

ETPA has a long-term commitment that we articulate through our vision:

“Provide an innovative and well-defined coaching network with a belief in learning through activity that has a proven record of success for all athletes.”

We aim to fulfil our vision by creating an environment that offers athletes around the world the network they require to succeed and our company’s mission reflects this aim.

We do this by providing a well defined and proven triathlon and multisport coaching system that models the characteristics that make athletes successful.

Because of these goals, ETPA programs are industry leading and our track record speaks for itself. We remove your boundaries and develop lifelong relationships.

Mat Tippett, the founder and director of ETPA, strives to help athletes reach their maximum potential and sporting goals. Whether this means finishing your first triathlon or becoming an Ironman champion, Mat has been there and understands the levels of commitment and application required. The ETPA approach is one of simplicity. Every program is tailored to the individual athlete and is designed around fulfilling the ETPA vision.

ETPA understands working athletes have commitments outside of training and racing. Some athletes want to completely immerse themselves in the sport while others want balance – that’s your choice, ETPA simply works with your lifestyle demands to make you the best you can be – to make your effort count.
