Spring 2022: $180 / 8 week coach led training (2x practice / week) / Maxium 20 athletes / Wednesday, March 30 to Sunday, May 22

We are partnered with Brooks Doughtie of All Out Multisport to provide a comprehensive youth and junior triathlon training program. Coach Brooks is a level II USA Triathlon coach who specializes in working with youth triathletes.

As part of USAT certification (among others), all of our coaches have passed NCSI background history checks and taken the USOC Safesport course.

During the 8 week spring program, athletes will prepare for a local kids event or a coach hosted bike-run time trial. Our workouts will generally be between the Raleigh NC State area to the Cary/Morrisville area. Locations will change week to week based on best use. At least one practice per week will include running games like capture the flag or ultimate frisbee. We will also include an occasional 2 mile singletrack hike. We will send a detailed schedule at the beginning of each week. Practices typically take place on Wednesday 445-545PM and Sunday 400-500PM afternoons. Please continue reading below for all program details.

We ride and run on dedicated greenways (no car traffic) and open fields. We swim at locations where we are able to rent lane space.
