It was a weekend full of firsts for many of our athletes! Congratulations to everyone who learned a new skill and crossed the finish line for the first time. 

June 7-9, 2019 / PLEASANT PRAIRIE, WI / $315

Athletes travel from across the country to participate in Dare2tri’s Paratriathlon training camp at the RecPlex in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. The event boasts top-level coaches, first-rate facilities, and state of the art adaptive equipment. Our daily schedule includes clinics in swimming (pool and open water), cycling/handcycling, running/pushing, triathlon transitions, nutrition, equipment maintenance, and much more.

Whether you are a beginner or experienced athlete you’ll be given the tools, knowledge, and skills necessary to succeed in any of our activities. All of our coaches are highly qualified and talented in their areas. They work with each participant to develop new skills. Whether it’s becoming a stronger swimmer, learning to push a racing chair, or getting more confident on your bike, we’ve got you covered!

On Sunday, athletes are invited to put their new skills to the test and race in the Dare2tri Tri It Triathlon. All paratriathletes are welcome to participate, whether or not they attended the camp. Dare2tri Paratriathlon Training Camp is the official technical training camp of USA Paratriathlon.

2017 training Camp: In their own words

I really appreciated the level of expertise available by the staff for each sport. I felt like I was really learning very valuable basic skills that provided great take aways for me to use as I train.

I was super excited to attempt to learn how to ride a two wheel bike. I really appreciated all the volunteers helping me ride an upright bike. I also loved socializing with others (especially Paraolympians that came to help coach!)

I thoroughly enjoy being around other disabled athletes, as there is no better support group for me. I always leave camp having made new friends and seeing old ones.
