April 2019 Update
A training camp is being planned for August of 2019 and will culminate with the Pinawa Kids of Steel Triathlon. Details will be posted as I get them from Triathlon Manitoba and we get a bit closer to Summer. Aiming to have 4-6 training days plus the Pinawa race.
Triathlon Camp Was a Blast! The future of triathlon in Southeast Manitoba is very bright.
Future camps are being planned for 2019 in our region as we gear up for qualifying for the 2020 Manitoba Summer Games.
Swim. Bike. Run. Play.
For the past two years I’ve been coaching Triathlon Camps for kids in Winnipeg/Brandon as part of Triathlon Manitoba Centre (Triathlon Manitoba). Excited to hold an additional mini – camp in Steinbach for Kids who want to become Triathletes! The Camp will have 2 sessions where we will focus on swim, biking, running, triathlon transitions, and having fun. The camp will then culminate with Kids of Steel Triathlon race held in Pinawa. https://www.triathlonmanitoba.ca/wp-content/uploads/KOS-Brochure-2018-Final-Edit.pdf
If you have a child with a lot of energy this is a great camp to make new friends and try something new. My goal is to help your child become confident and fully prepared to race.
