A special award will be presented to the team or club with the largest participation in the Texas Tri Series. The rules are as follows:
  • To earn a participation credit, the team member must be registered for the Texas by the registration deadline.
  • The team member must select a single team for the entire series, and enter it when they register for the Texas Tri Series.
  • Each finish in any of the 7 texas tri series events by a team member will earn 1 credit for their team.
