NCCP Community Triathlon Coach Clinic Wait List
Triathlon BC is in the process of planning out the delivery of our 2022 NCCP Community Clinic calendar. Typically, we require a minimum number of participants to proceed with a Clinic, though some exceptions are made from time to time to develop a specific area of our Province.
Triathlon BC’s NCCP Community Sport Workshops are a two-day investment, for those that want to help new athletes and support age group athletes by teaching basic triathlon skills and introduction to multisport events. The Community coach is focused on safe participation, teaching skills, and fun, and caters to both beginner and experienced coaches who are currently coaching or intend to coach age group athletes 16 and older.
Coaches will learn how to coach and teach basic triathlon skills, how to plan safe and engaging practices, and how to support triathletes to participate safely at events.
