Transitions are often called the fourth sport of triathlon. MINI COW TRI CLUB is offering a free youth transition clinic for children ages 7–15 to help take the mystery out of the swim-to-bike and bike-to-run transitions and get your triathlete MOOtivated for the 2013 season!
ABOUT THE CLINIC
One part presentation one part hands-on, our free Youth Transition Clinic at TRI-MANIA Summit and Expo will cover basic triathlon equipment needs, transition tips, bike racking rules, bike mounting/dismounting techniques, and safety. Previous multisport experience is not necessary. Following the presentation portion of the clinic there will be a few minutes for Q&A and then the first 30 youth triathletes to register will have an opportunity to put their new skills to practice during hands-on drills and a fun relay event. The clinic is free but pre-registration is required. Last year's clinic filled quickly, so don't wait to register!
When: Sunday, March 24, 2013, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Where: TRI-MANIA Summit and Expo, Hanley Center for Athletic Excellence, 10900 Rockville Pike, North Bethesda, MD 20852
Who: Children ages 7–15
Fee: Free, pre-registration required
Registration: Register online at imATHLETE.com/events/YouthTransitionClinic
Due to space limitations as well as the safety of our youth triathletes and coaches, we can only invite the first 30 children that register to participate in the hands-on portion of the clinic.
There's a bunch of stuff at the 2013 TRI-MANIA Summit and Expo for grownup triathletes too – six time Ironman World Champion Mark Allen is the keynote speaker – so hoof it on over to the TRI-MANIA Summit and Expo website and register yourself. Admission to the expo and seminars is free!
