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.
