GTC Tristars July Camp

Glasgow Triathlon Club Tristars July Summer Camp 2018
Monday 9th July to Friday 13th July inclusive – Glasgow Club Bellahouston
We are excited to announce the first of our five-day triathlon camp during the school summer holidays which will provide a fantastic experience for kids aged 8 – 15 to train in the disciplines of triathlon; swimming, cycling and running. We will also cover strength & conditioning, nutrition & transitions.
The camp is open to anyone aged between 8 and 15 who can swim front crawl continuously with their head in the water for at least 4 lengths and has use of a bike which is in good working order (a helmet is mandatory and rider must bring this too). We welcome kids from any club and/or kids who are interested in multisport.
To allow all participants to get most out of the camp, it is important that each child meets the minimum swim ability: we ask that children can swim a minimum of 100m (4 lengths) continuous front crawl with their head in the water and without putting their feet down or stopping. If you are unsure whether your child can do this, you can arrange for them to come to Club session for a short swim assessment by one of our coaches. Unfortunately, these camps are not for those wishing to learn to swim.
Each day the athletes will be swimming, cycling and undertaking strength and conditioning exercises.
The cost of the camp is £125.00 for five action packed days.
Applications for non-members will be held on a waiting list and approved by GTC by 20th April 2018.
