Webinar: Hosting a Youth Triathlon Camp
Topic: Hosting a Youth Triathlon Camp
If you have never hosted a triathlon camp or coached in one, you don’t know what you have missed. Putting on a youth triathlon camp can be both a rewarding and taxing experience. Prior to the camp there are a lot of logistics to be taken care of. Running the day to day camp will probably be the easiest part of the whole process.
Reasons for hosting a camp can be numerous. It can make good business sense, and it can help to meet a community need. It can be a challenge to get out of your comfort zone and can lead your coaching into another whole direction. Whatever the reason, you will definitely be adding to the success of the multi-sport lifestyle we’ve chosen to coach.
In this webinar, Coach Phil DiGirolamo, will deliver to you practical advice on the many different areas of concern that need to be addressed. Having been a camp director, head coach and an assistant coach for over twenty (20) youth camps since 2000 Phil will point you in the right direction.
