Dominion Cycling and Tri Club presents the 2nd annual, Black Bears- Youth and Juniors Triathlon Skills Camp!

Details: This is a 5 day, Monday-Friday Camp. The camp structure will consist of a morning and late afternoon training session, daily skills and training education topics, crafts. games, trail hikes and more! All meals and snacks are included. Special dietary considerations can be prearranged and coordinated if needed.
Attendees will be learning and practicing basic and advanced skills necessary for attaining great results in the sport of Triathlon. Attendees will be divided into groups based on experience level and abilities. Groups will loosely be arranged with beginner to intermediate athletes in one group and advanced/high performance athletes in another group, in order to ensure all campers are adequately challenged.
For the Advance/ High Performance group, we will be offering an Elite/High Performance component, called the Dominion High Performance Academy which will be open to qualified athletes ages 12 to 17. The athletes in this group will take part in all the same activities as the rest of the attendees, but the training will be adapted in order to focus on more “High Performance” required skills such as draft legal bike racing and open water skills. Special and advance training topics will also be presented to this group and we will have some assigned reading and discussion.
