On Saturday, March 2 and Saturday, April 20, 2013, Dream Team Athens head coach Kim Landrum will lead two FREE transition clinics at the YWCO on Research Drive. The clinic sessions will run from 2:00-3:00 pm on the YWCO campus and pool.
What to Expect:
Coach Kim will teach your child everything they need to know to participate in the June 1st YWCO Kids Tri the Y Youth Triathlon. We will cover the course layout, race distances for each age, swim start and swim leg, swim to bike transition (T1), bike handling skills including mounts & dismounts, bike to run transition (T2), the run leg, general USA Triathlon rules, race safety & equipment.
Your child will have an opportunity to swim the course distance and establish an estimated swim time to be used for the swim start. Participants will start the swim in order of their estimated swim time to ensure all athletes have the best experience. Kids who need extra time in the pool will be allowed that time without feeling rushed. Race registration will be available at the clinic.
What to Bring:
Please bring your child dressed in appropriate clothing for the event such as shorts or sweat pants, t-shirt, socks and tennis shoes. We will be moving around and performing some activities so we want participants to be able to move around comfortably. You will also need to bring:
- bike helmet
- tennis shoes
- swim cap (if needed)
- bathing suit
- swim towel
- hand towel
