Beginner Triathlon Clinics

Get Started in the Sport of Triathlon!

GTC’s Spring and Summer Beginner Triathlon Clinics will help you prepare for your first triathlon or help you get back in the game and sharpen your skills.

Our NCCP certified triathlon coaches will teach you the basics of triathlon, covering topics like training techniques, nutrition, race day preparation, open water swimming, cycling, running, transitions, injury prevention, proper training attire, equipment, and more. Our Beginner Clinics will also help new athletes to overcome uncertainties or anxieties that athletes may experience when competing in an event for the first time.
