SPARC, A Chapter of DSUSA Paratriathlon Training Clinic

Saturday, April 23rd: 8:30 am – 5:30 pm & Sunday, April 24th: 8:30 am – 1:30 pm EDT

SPARC, A Chapter of DSUSA, is proud to announce its first Paratriathlon Training Clinic with instruction provided by coaches from the Dare2tri Paratriathlon Club of Chicago, Illinois, which is also a Chapter of DSUSA.  This clinic is being funded by a generous grant from the Ironman Foundation of Tampa, Florida.

The clinic is open to athletes ages 16 and up of all experience levels.  The clinic will be held at the excellent facilities of the Girls Preparatory School (GPS), 205 Island Ave, Chattanooga, TN 37405, which is near downtown Chattanooga, and many hotels and restaurants.  The clinic will include one and a half days of training in swimming (pool), cycling/handcycling, running/pushing, transition, nutrition, and equipment maintenance.  The tentative schedule and registration information are listed below.

Registration is tentatively limited to fifteen athletes, first-come, first-serve, due to limitation of coaches and equipment.  Registration is limited to athletes with physical or visual impairment that could be classified in one of the categories defined by ITU Paratriathlon Sport Classes (Categories) as listed on the USA Paratriathlon’s website:  https://www.teamusa.org/USA-Triathlon/USAT-for-Me/Athlete-Resources/Paratriathletes/Classifications.  Registration fee is $25.  Lunch will be provided on both days.
