Paratriathlon Training Camp

Want to learn more about the sport of Paratriathlon from some very experienced coaches? Come join Dare2tri Paratriathlon Club at its 6th annual Paratriathlon Training Camp June 10-12 in Pleasant Prairie, WI. This camp is an “Official Technical Training Camps of USA Paratriathlon.” The features two full days of clinics including but not limited to functional strength, pool and open water swim, cycling, running/pushing, transition, nutrition, equipment maintenance, Paratri 101 and USA Paratriathlon rules and regulations and more.  The camp concludes with the Dare2tri Tri It Triathlon where athletes are able to put their newly acquired skills to the test and cross the finish line, many for the first time. This camp is geared towards beginner and intermediate paratriathlete and utilized many of Dare2tri’s Elite Team members as mentors.  For more information about the camp visit http://www.dare2tri.org/paratriathlon-training-camp/.

Interested coaches are responsible for covering their own breakfast, dinner and lodging costs.  Dare2tri can provide lunch for $10/day.  If the coach is interested in staying with the athletes and staff, that is a possible option and more information will be provided as a coach is accepted. Coaches will act in an “assistant” role helping head coaches and staff the entire weekend. Upon completion of the entire camp and all sessions, coaches will receive 6 CEUs from USAT towards their next recertification.  Interested coaches need to send Amanda Duke Boulet Amanda.duke@usatriathlon.org a coaching resume, any relevant para experience (if any), and a short write up about why you would like to attend this camp as an assistant coach.

For those in the paratriathlon, triathlon, and endurance sport community, Dare2tri also has several ways to make your race more meaningful, at all levels. Dare2tri’s Race2Raise Team is comprised of athletes looking to make an impact for a great cause while competing in various triathlon, running, or endurance races. All funds raised by Race2Raise members will support Dare2tri’s mission to positively impact the lives of athletes with physical disabilities or visual impairments by developing their paratriathlon skills, while inspiring the community at large.

Race2Raise can be joined on the individual and/or corporate level. As an individual, Race2Raise can be done in conjunction with any race or event. At the corporate level, two co-workers can join the Race2Raise Corporate Challenge Relay Team for the 2016 Transamerica Chicago Triathlon. Dare2tri will pair the co-workers with a paratriathlete teammate to complete the triathlon relay. During the sprint race, each person competes in one discipline (swim, bike, or run).
