USAT Select Camp, Midwest 2011
Des Moines, Iowa
Select Camps serve USAT's more experienced, competitive junior athletes. Proficiency in draft-legal racing is the focus of these camps, although the core skills apply to drafting and non-drafting races alike. Athletes spend time honing race tactics, improving their transitions, and mastering bike handling. Extra emphasis is placed on nutrition and sports science, as well as developing training programs that balance the demands of high school athletes with their involvement in triathlon. Athletes will work with USAT Certified Youth and Junior Coaches as well as single-sport specialists and guest elite triathletes. While not always required, most Select Camp athletes will be chosen from prior Skill Development Camp attendees, High Performance Team members, or from USAT Benchmark Testing data.
