We are proud to offer multiple Hands-On Clinics at locations across the First Coast. Each Clinic lasts for a total of 3 hours and will give every participant the knowledge they need to complete a triathlon. These clinics are ideal for young athletes who are physically ready to complete the triathlon but need some practice and knowledge.
At the start of each Clinic, the participants will be divided into 4 groups (usually by age). After a brief introduction, the 4 groups will each rotate across 4 different stations. Each rotation lasts for 30 minutes and gives every participant the opportunity to swim, bike, run and practice their transitions. Each Clinic ends with a Question & Answer session that helps make sure everyone is ready for race weekend. Parents are welcome to attend, but we ask that you allow the coaches to do all the coaching.
Please understand a few things before registering for one of these Clinics:
- They are NOT learn-to-swim programs. They are focused much more on education and awareness than “hard-core” training.
- While participation in these Clinics is free, we hope they encourage you to register for the 2018 First Coast Kids Triathlon.
- Space is limited in each Clinic and advanced registration is required. Please let us know as soon as possible if you have registered and will not be able to attend. It will allow us to offer your space to another young athlete.
