Overview:  Triathlon Canada will be hosting a National Para Development Camp for all Para athletes in Montreal this summer between June 27th and 30th. The intention is to offer an opportunity to learn, train, and prepare to race leading into the Open Para National Championships event held on June 29th immediately following the World Triathlon Para Series race in Montreal.

The camp is geared towards athletes, ages 16+, who have a physical disability or visual impairment from beginners to elite-level athletes. The camp will be a mix of training and informative learning sessions with a focus on triathlon skills and optimizing athletes’ health. Activities will be based in and around Parc Jean Drapeau, a safe and accessible training venue. Parc Jean Drapeau is easily accessible by bike, car, or train from downtown Montreal.

Athletes under the age of 16 will be considered on a case-by-case basis, please contact: paratriathlon@triathloncanada.com.

Fees, Travel & Accommodation: There is no registration fee for athletes to attend this week-long camp. The camp includes all training, coaching, and development sessions as well as lunch for each day. Athletes are responsible for their own travel, accommodation, and meals outside of those provided. We are doing our best to ensure cost is not a barrier to participation. If you require financial support, please reach out to paratriathlon@triathloncanada.com.
