Paratriathlon Training Camp


Save the Date! June 8-10, 2018

Dare2tri Paratriathlon Training Camp is open to athletes of all experience levels. Athletes travel from across the country to participate in Dare2tri’s three-day camp at Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, which boasts top-level coaches, first-rate facilities, ample state of the art adaptive equipment for participant use, and highly trained and qualified staff and volunteers ready and willing to assist with anything an athlete might need. 

Camp kicks off with two full days of clinics in swimming (pool and open water), cycling/handcycling, running/pushing, transition, nutrition, equipment maintenance and much more. On Sunday, athletes are invited to put their new skills to the test and cross the finish line at 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.
