Youth Triathlon Club



Chris Sustala (Coach Crash)

Head Coach

“I am honored for the opportunity to grow on a foundation that we have set through the previous years.  Each session has taught me something different in working with the NextGen youth, and I am confident this year will be no different.”
Chris has been with NextGen from its very inception.  As well as coaching many local adult and youth triathletes, he has many years of experience coaching youth swimming through the Sharks Swim Club, the South Shore Sails Swim Team, and the Aggie Swim Club, at all levels, from developmental, to seniors and masters.  He also has the personal experience it takes to share with our kids what it’s like to compete at the elite competitive level – he completed 3 full Ironman Triathlons and around 50 half-Ironmans!
