Bytown Storm Age Group Triathlon Program
The program focusses on improving technical performance in triathlon with primary emphasis on swimming. The program is centred around a 60-90min swim session at either the Nepean Sportsplex or Richcraft Recreation Centre where athletes will work on form and technical aspects of swimming from fundamentals to advanced tactical elements like drafting and sighting.
There will be a fitness component to these sessions but the primary focus is developing improved form and technique in the water so athletes can take the feedback, corrections, and drills they receive and learn in these sessions to their own practices during the week.
Body Position and Balance
Triathletes, particularly those with no youth background in swimming struggle with body position and balance in the water. We’ll work on balance, alignment, and rotation to improve your overall efficiency.
Once we understand how to hold our body in the water, we can develop proper stroke mechanics, from the catch, to the finish, and back to recovery.
A good efficient kick helps with balance, position, and rotation regardless if we’re in a wetsuit or not!
Race Tactics and Drafting
Work on pacing strategies, drafting techniques and sighting to improve your ability to navigate an open water swim course!
When: Saturdays from 3:30pm – 5:00pm**
Where: Nepean Sportsplex
Duration: April 2 to August 31
Optional Track Sessions
Like our swim sessions, these track runs will focus on form and technique using drills and intervals to improve overall run form and efficiency and aid in injury prevention. These sessions will run whenever the weather permits.
