Programs and Coaching

 Competitive Program is designed for athletes who are interested in entering the DRAFT LEGAL pathway in triathlon.   Draft legal racing is what you see at major games like the PanAm and Olympic  Games.  Draft legal triathlon has many different demands than non-draft legal racing and we specialize in Draft legal racing and developing athletes who can excel in this environment.


We have the ONLY coaches in Ottawa who know draft legal racing, understand the skills and demands that need to be developed.  We have spent the past 15 years in the competitive environment of draft legal racing as well as understanding the importance of cultivating an environment where performance and excellence are the top priorities for our coaches and our athletes.
Our program goes beyond medals and podium finishes, we work hard to develop better people through sport.  Our program demands athletes develop time management and goal setting skills.  We hold our athletes accountable for their training, reporting and equipment management.   Our athletes are supported through every aspect of the sport by qualified Professional coaches and practitioners.
The Competitive program is commitment to long term development and the athletes understand the demands of the sport beyond the Provincial level.  Each athlete is supported and their program is focused on ensuring personal development within the group setting keeping personal objectives in line with their development of an athlete. 


The pathway to High Performance is not based upon training alone, endurance sports especially require skill sets and support in a number of areas.  The COMPETITIVE program includes support in areas that needs to be introduced at this point in order for the athletes to develop proper habits surrounding their training.
