Youth triathlon clinic is back this year

Program will help participants prepare for Tri K triathlon

Youth ages 10 and up once again have the opportunity to prepare for the 31st annual Shoreline Orthodontics Tri K Triathlon through a seven-week youth triathlon clinic supported by the Comox Valley Triathlon Club.

The program will run Tuesdays from 4-6 p.m., starting April 9 and meeting at the Comox Valley Sports Centre for training sessions in all three disciplines (swimming, biking, and running). Young athletes will gain numerous training and racing tips for each discipline in  preparation for the May 27 Tri K.

Coaches Lynda Magor, an NCCP Competition Certified Triathlon Coach and long time triathlete, along with local Ironman triathlete Audrey Erlandson, also an NCCP Community Certified Triathlon Coach, will ensure all aspects of triathlon preparation are covered in a super fun and safe environment.

“The Comox Valley Tri K has to be one of the best youth-supported triathlon races in B.C.,” says Magor. “The venue is perfect for kids of all ages to participate as a team or as an individual in several age-appropriate distances. The Tri K is also the first Vancouver Island triathlon race that Simon Whitfield competed in as a young triathlon star on his journey to winning his Olympic gold medal.”

“Our clinic will provde an opportunity for youth who are interested in attempting triathlon as a sport, but are just not sure of what they need to do to train and where to start,” Erlandson added.

For those young athletes who may have already competed in a triathlon and are looking for more sustained training for the sport, Magor is looking to develop a Youth Triathlon Club.  The Youth Club format will have more in depth training and coaching available from April through until the end of June. Anyone interested should contact Magor directly for details.
