Development Camps

Camp Director: Jenny Weber, USA Triathlon Level II and Youth and Junior Certified Coach, RADC-Midwest

Select Camps serve USA Triathlon's more experienced, competitive junior athletes. Proficiency in draft-legal racing is the focus of these camps, although the core skills apply to drafting and non-drafting races alike. Athletes spend time honing race tactics, improving their transitions and mastering bike handling. Extra emphasis is placed on nutrition and sports science, as well as developing training programs that balance the demands of high school athletes with their involvement in triathlon. Athletes will work with USA Triathlon Youth and Junior Certified Coaches as well as single-sport specialists and guest elite triathletes. While not always required, most Select Camp athletes will be chosen from prior Skill Development Camp attendees, High Performance Team members or from USA Triathlon Benchmark Testing data.
