YDub Tri Club
YDub Tri Club is YWCA’s very own seasonal triathlon training group!

Build bonds with your fellow triathletes and feel the pride of crossing the finish line! Included are a practice triathlon, preview of the race course, team dinner, and lots of support from your fellow YDubbers.

Race experience preferred but not required. Participants must provide goggles, running shoes, helmet, a bike, and a red blinking bike light.
Level I Triathlon Training: Training typically runs 6-12 weeks beginning with focus on technique, proper form, transition education, bike maintenance, and nutrition. Training then moves on to include endurance, strength, and speed. Beginner training is 6 days per week and will require a minimum of 6 hours per week. Prerequisites include: ability to show understanding and execution of the front crawl swim stroke in the pool.

Level III Triathlon Training: This starts where Level II left off. Training typically runs 8 weeks and picks up where beginner training ends. Participants will further develop endurance, strength, and speed as well as be introduced to time/energy saving methods and more advance bike riding skills.
