Beginner Triathlon Training Clinics

“OH MY GODDARD!” , The Fat Clam Tri & TriNEWPORT Triathlons
2017 Training Clinics Itinerary

2016 marks our 9th year with the popular novice clinic series. They are a lot of fun, and hundreds of triathletes and soon-to-be triathletes have made it to the starting line more confident as a result. Each clinic begins with an informal talk, questions and concerns are addressed, and each participant leaves with a hardcopy of the tips and topics covered. We then proceed to the workout of the day, practicing what we have learned. All levels of experience are welcome and included, we won’t leave you behind!

Goddard Park to get ready for the OMG!

The outside training clinic will be a similar format to the pool swims. First we will discuss proper technique and offer tips in the discipline(s) covered that week, then practice what we have learned on the Goddard course. Sessions are designed to build in a progressive fashion so that by race day we have covered every aspect of triathlon at least once. Sessions will last approximately 2 hours and will take place rain or shine! In the event of bad weather, we'll move the clinic indoors.
