FIREFISH

Triathlon Team

OUR GOALS FOR FIREFISH TRIATHLON TEAM
Our goal is to make triathlon a part of our swimmers' vocabulary at a young age while keeping it FUN and SAFE. 
Triathlon  is a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Let Trish and Kelly  share their experience and enthusiasm as competitive triathletes with your children!  
Trish is a 5x Ironman Finisher.  She still competes in the sprint and olympic distance triathlons.  
Kelly  was on the triathlon team at Auburn University and qualified for Nationals while she competed there.
We will meet each trathlete at their level.  If they are beginner--we will help them gain confidence and skills.
If they are more experienced--we will help build their knowledge and skill base.  We may provide extra support and training as needed.  Trish and Kelly have access to triathletes of all abilities to help develop each triathlete.
Our triathletes will be taught stretches and drills to help them warm up and to help prevent injuries.  We will teach them about the sport of triathlon.  They  will be taught how to set up their gear in their transition area and the tricks to a fast transition.  They will also learn skills that are specific to open water swimming.  We will talk about bike handling and safety while having FUN on our bike rides.
                               will be supporting us by providing paddleboards for our lifeguards and bike support on our bike rides.  Cape Cod Seasports is located on Route 132 in Hyannis.  Their motto is "We live what we love."  They truly do.  Please visit them and learn about their weekly bike rides that leave from the shop.  They can also support you with bike maintanence and wetsuit needs!!
INCLEMENT WEATHER: We will provide an alternative indoor session in the case of inclement weather.  Part of our curriculum will include mental toughness strategies, stretching and flexibility and transition skills.  These are all skills that can be taught and trained indoors.
