TEAM SA Learn to Tri Clinic
Over the last weekend of April, Head Coach Xavier joined TeamTri SA coaches Nic & Sarah in Adelaide for Learn to Tri two day clinic for beginner triathletes.
The weekend consisted of two days of skill based sessions covering off everything from correctly fitting your wetsuit, over coming open water swimming anxiety & transition tips & tricks. The weekend concluded on the Sunday with two mini triathlons to put new found skills and knowledge to the test.
Needless to say all involved had a great weekend, there were high fives and smiles all around! We cannot wait to see you all progress over the coming months and reach your goals no matter how big or small.
Keep an eye out on Facebook and Instagram for the next installment in SA to be held in July covering off intermediate skills for anyone looking to improve their training and results for the coming season.
Alternatively we would love to hear from you! Get in touch with a coach here
