Team B.A.B.E. Athletics
The initial idea for Team B.A.B.E. Athletics was conceived during the 2018 Triathlon Brand Ambassador season. (You know the months of September & October when ALL our favorite brands are having us athletes submit ambassador applications and then are breaking our hearts when they only choose a handful of elite people in the end?)
After seeing so many amazing female athletes not get selected by their favorite brands because they didn’t fit the brand image, were just the “average” athlete or didn’t have enough instagram followers we thought, “Why isn’t there a team that supports ALL female athletes, has a badass vibe and provides a kickass family of support?”
After a couple of months of planning and working out details Team B.A.B.E. Athletics launched in March of 2019. We can’t wait to see where this journey takes us and build a badass team of amazing women along the way!
“A B.A.B.E. has the wings of victory 🦅, the heart of an athlete ❤️ and the fire of a badass 🔥”
“Finally, A badass Multi-sport Team Just for women where you are Welcome regardless of your Size, ability, age or number of instagram followers.”

With a love for the multi-sport modality of triathlon, Coach Rae enjoys being able to share the sport with other women. “I understand how challenging it can be learning something new, but also how rewarding it is when you conquer that badass challenge. There is nothing better than being able to share that feeling with other female athletes.”
Rae has always been active and involved in sports. She grew up riding her bike everywhere, playing volleyball and running high school track. As an adult she played Roller Derby and upon “retirement” was looking for a new sport. That was when she found Duathlons and made the 2018 Team USA Long Course Duathlon team.
Coach Rae now uses triathlon as a way to manage her weight and mental health; from PCOS, anxiety and depression. It also helps fulfill the competitive spirit of her badass personality. 😉
