Triathlon NL is announcing the start of a brand new program, our High Performance Program.
Triathlon NL’s High Performance Program (HPP) is intended to provide top performing young athletes with training and racing opportunities for advancement to national and international competitions. Athletes age 15 – 22 are eligible to participate
The program includes training programs and guidance from our two provincial coaches, Steph Nevin and Will Duggan, who are certified for Competitive coaching by Triathlon Canada, and who also have a wealth of competitive experience at national and international competitions.
The program is designed around regular training in all three disciplines of swim, bike, and run, and can be integrated with participation in programs offered by these sports if appropriate. Training would include, for example, open water swimming technique, bike handling, and transition practice. Training will be organized and progress tracked using Training Peaks.
Key features for athletes will be an opportunity each year to represent the province at a national level competition, with travel subsidized by the program. Athletes will also have access to gear, clothing/swag, and discounts on gear via Triathlon NL and the program sponsors.
The cost of delivering the program will be shared between Triathlon NL and the participants. The participation fee is currently set at $50 per month.
If you are interested in joining the HPP, please contact Triathlon NL at email@example.com by June 30, 2023.
