YOUTH TRIATHLON

Peak Performance Youth Triathlon Program

The Peak Performance Summer Youth Triathlon program is designed for first-timers to experienced triathletes.  Our goal is to give young athletes exposure to the sport and build basic skills as they advance in the sport.  We hold practice two times a week and during most practices we will do a brick moving from swim to bike, swim to run, or bike to run.  Each 90 minute practice is designed to give athletes a low pressure, fun, and positive environment to learn the sport and work at their pace.

We have three goal races throughout the summer. These will be great opportunities for athletes to test their fitness and sharpen their skills. If your athlete can’t attend these events there are other local races we can suggest.

Peak Performance Summer Youth Triathlon Program

Swim

Open water swimming will take place at Bear Creek Lake Park. The focus is on learning proper sighting technique and gaining confidence in the open water.

A note on safety:
Athletes need to be able to swim up to 200m without stopping and be confident swimmers. This program is not designed for first time swimmers who have not taken lessons and are not confident swimming without aides. All of our coaches are CPR/First Aid certified and are confident swimmers who will be in the water with them or in kayaks.

Bike

Our goal is to teach athletes how to ride confidently. We will work on bike handling skills including riding in small packs, signaling to other athletes, shifting properly, and cornering.

Athletes don’t need to have all these skills but should be able to comfortably ride for 45 minutes.

Athlete Equipment Requirement:

  • Proper fitting helmet
  • Proper fitting bike (road or mountain)
  • An extra tube, tire levers, rear-facing light, and seat bag

Optional Equipment

  • Clip in pedals
  • Clip-on bars
  • Bike shorts

Run

Athletes will learn proper run mechanics, build run fitness and learn how to successfully run off the bike.  For an additional fee athletes can join the Peak Performance Running group for further run training opportunities.
