The Black Bears Youth Tri Skills Camp
June 24- 28, 2013
Registration is closed for 2013! Please check back in the early Spring for our 2014 Camp.
Looking for a Fun, Safe and Engaging camp for your Youth Triathlete? Then send them to Dominion’s Black Bear Youth Triathlon Skills Camp!
Details: This will be a 5 day, 4 night camp. Drop off is Monday afternoon and pick up is Friday morning. Transportation to/from nearby airports can be arranged.
Attendees will be learning and practicing basic and advanced skills necessary for attaining great results in the sport of Triathlon. Campers 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 a Youth Elite/High Performance component, called the Dominion High Performance Academy which will be open to qualified athletes ages 12 to 15. The athletes in this group will take part in all the same activities as the rest of the campers, 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 on the topics of structuring training, nutrition and we will have some assigned reading and discussion.
The camp structure will consist of a morning and late afternoon training session, daily skills and training education topics, games, trail hikes, a little free time each day to unwind and call home, camp fires, night time fun activities and more! All meals and snacks are included. Special dietary considerations can be prearranged and coordinated if needed.
