This 8-week clinic program is designed to provide you with skills and race strategy to make you “race ready” for Tri Santa Cruz, or any other sprint or Olympic distance triathlon, duathlon, or aquathlon in late summer. LIMITED TO 25 PARTICIPANTS.
The clinic will kick off on Saturday, June 22 with an introduction to the schedule and formats, followed by a fun and social bike ride with a wrap up for beer and chat.
USAT insured and sanctioned clinic structure for all group sessions. If not a USAT member a $10 on-day license fee will cover all clinic sessions (but not any race coverage).
That’s the loaded question. Because women are fundamentally different in their training needs and the way they approach racing. They frequently have different demands placed on them from their daily lives in balancing work, family, and fitness. In other words, they frequently need more flexibility in schedules, have different dietary needs, and thrive on a more social environment.
Absolutely not, but they approach the process in a different way, and with a different set of skills.
You never know until you try it – or “tri” it! Here’s a quote from Lisa Rainsberger, former pro triathlete and Boston Marathon coach:
Because training alone isn’t any fun! Even when you belong to a local tri club you may find yourself trying to fit in to a workout program but it’s not tailored to your racing schedule, or your life. A targeted clinic gives you a group of people who commit to spending time in a supportive and mentoring environment where all skill levels are accepted. You can still go to all your club workouts and have them integrated into your workout plans or you can train with your fellow coaching clinic members and mentors.
This clinic will get you ready to race if this is your first triathlon, or help you improve your skills and performance if you have already done one or more multisport events. However, you must be able to meet the following guidelines:
That’s okay too. We’ll tailor your training plans and workouts to your goals.
Absolutely! A club group workout isn’t necessarily the same thing as a comprehensive training plan. Frequently with a club workout the session is tailored either to the lowest common denominator or it favors the high performing athletes. It’s hard to make a one-size fits all club workout because there are so many people of varying skills and ability. This is an opportunity to develop a workout and mentoring team tailored to you and your objectives. Can you still do the club workouts? Of course, but you will know how much you can/should do based on your training plan and racing objectives. This reduces your exposure to injury by overtraining or doing too much based on your stage of training based on your race objectives.
Once again, absolutely. You should be doing strength training and other disciplines such as yoga and pilates are a big part of that.
No, you don’t need to have a fancy bike or a power meter, or any of the other stuff you see advertised. If you do – great! You’re a step ahead, but not necessary to get you started. You will have an opportunity to fine tune your gear as the sessions evolve.
While it’s not a requirement we recommend that you have a heart rate monitor for all sessions and be prepared to use it and upload the data to your Training Peaks account. Heart rate data is a very important part of training (and monitoring overtraining which leads to injuries and fatigue). If you can’t afford the top of the line HRM we can help you pick a basic one that won’t break your bank.

We are supporting USA Triathlon's strategic initiative of growing women’s participation in the sport of triathlon and its related multisport activities. What better way to embrace the sport, learn something new, or enhance the skills you already have, than to join a group of like-minded women of all skill levels in a summer clinic. Who knows, you might find your perfect training partner too.
This schedule may be subject to change once the clinic meets and determines the schedules that may work well for everyone. Weekday workouts are highly recommended but optional if you live out of the area.
Weeknight session will meet at 6 or 6:30 pm.
Weekend session will be either at 8:00am or 9:00am.
