Participants will take part in daily swim (including open water in the Pacific Ocean), bike, and run workouts. They will also participate in USA Triathlon benchmark testing.  They will receive one-on-one sport-specific instruction, as well as lessons in goal setting, the art of balancing school sports and triathlon training, detailed information on how to move through the USAT athlete development pipeline, available USAT and USAT Southwest age-specific opportunities and race strategy for non-drafting and draft-legal triathlon competition. Emphasis will be placed on developing correct bike handling skills and road safety, open water specific swim skills, proper running form, transition speed as well as many other related skills. 

Athletes will enjoy getting to know peers who share a similar interest and passion for the sport of triathlon. This camp is open to all levels of interested youth and junior triathletes. Each athlete will be evaluated and placed in an appropriate age/experience group.  Performance data collected at the camp will be shared with USA Triathlon and could result in invitations to participate in subsequent USAT national programs.
