The USA Triathlon Mid-Atlantic Region Paratriathlon clinic will be held in Baltimore, MD on April 6-7, 2013. The clinic is open to all physically challenged youth and adults age 7 and up. The clinic will be organized into tracks for beginner, intermediate, and advanced athletes and us open to youth and adults that are amputees or wheelchair athletes. Experienced coaches, trainers, and PTs in adaptive swimming, handcycles, pushrim cycling, and running/cycling with prosthesis will lead the clinic.
Volunteers will be available to assist as athlete handlers and other support. Please complete the registration form if interested in attending so the coaches have basic information about your experience and abilities to tailor your training at the clinic, and volunteers can be assigned appropriately.
