The Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA is pleased to announce they will offer a Tween Tri Camp this summer for children ages 11-13 years old. The focus will be on developing skills and conditioning in the three sports that make up a triathlon which are swimming, biking and running. This camp is open to all levels of fitness and abilities focusing on a positive healthy lifestyle.
In addition to working on sports specific conditioning, campers will stretch and strengthen with Yoga, Pilates, and Bosu training and have time for recreational fun. Nutrition is also a very important component of any training protocol. Each day, campers will be involved with making a healthy snack and discuss nutrition topics such as calorie and protein needs, food choices, hydration needs in sports, pre-event meals and snack for best performance with a Registered Dietitian.
In order to be prepared for an actual triathlon, our Tri-Coach will discuss what to pack on race day, transition area set up, and open water swimming. The camp runs for three weeks. At the last day or each week, the campers have a chance to put all of what they learned into practice with a mini-tri.
Interested participants can sign up for one or all weeks beginning July 16th-19th, July 23rd-26th, July 30th-August 2nd from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Please contact Donna Peart at (908) 889-8880 for more information. Visit www.fanwoodscotchplainsymca.org for pricing information.
