From day one Team Z strives to provide athletes the knowledge they need to not just survive our sport, but to thrive” to get the most out of their training and racing, and to be happy and healthy triathletes!

While learning takes place across many different mediums, we have created a structured, formal “curriculum” to ensure that all of our athletes have access to the information they need to start, or continue, their triathlon career successfully.

The clinics and other learning opportunities are almost exclusively held on weekends at locations easily accessible by traveling the beltway. We will leverage local experts and guest speakers (if not Coach Ed himself) to teach our athletes in subjects such as (not all inclusive):

  • Running, Biking, Swimming Equipment: What do you really need and where do you get it?
  • Running, Biking, and Swimming Etiquette: How to communicate in the group environments
  • Running, Biking, Swimming Technique: You’ll be winning gold medals in all three!
  • Heart Rate Training and Season Planning
  • Race Strategy and Race Planning
  • Rules, Transitions, and What to expect on Race Day
  • Woman’s only clinic
  • Injury Prevention
  • Nutrition
  • Bike Maintenance
  • Dressing for winter training and racing
