SLAP Youth Winter Tri Camps

Location: Lake Louisa State Park

Thanks to a generous donation from the Cherry Lake Races...we will be hosting 2 camps this winter to prepare for the Challenge Daytona Youth races on December 5th. All campers will attend camp for FREE...limited to 15 athletes. If your child would like to attend, please sign up here to secure a spot.

Campers between the ages of 6-17 are welcome to attend. No experience necessary. Please bring the following equipment: swim suit & goggles, bike and helmet, run shoes and water bottle (plus any additional triathlon related equipment you already have).

Please enter the State Park by 12:45p, pay the required park entry fee, and then drive to the Lake Louisa parking lot. Parents are welcome to stay in the park for the duration of camp...this is a great area to train all sports! Email us with any questions: info@swim-like-a-pro.com.

Q: WHO is SLAP Youth Winter Tri Camp for?

A: SLAP Tri Camp is for kids 6-17 years old that want to come train, learn, and have fun with the SLAP Coaches and other members of the SLAP Youth & Junior Tri Team and prepare for the Challenge Daytona race! Campers do NOT have to have any triathlon racing experience to participate (but they do need a bike without training wheels and must be able to swim the length of the pool).

Campers will be divided into groups of similar age and ability for the swim, bike, run, and transition training sessions.

Athletes do not have to be local to Central Florida or Clermont, nor to they have to be part of the SLAP Tri Team to attend camp! We have the largest and most experienced triathlon coaching staff in Central Florida...we invite anyone to attend and benefit from the skills and training, as well as meet other awesome triathletes.

Q: WHY are we hosting this camp?

A: We are so grateful to the Cherry Lake Farms races for the generous donation. Because every other youth triathlon race in Central Florida was cancelled this year due to COVID, we are trying to make Challenge Daytona a big focus for the whole team!

We are hosting the camp for free to welcome athletes of all ages and experience levels to come practice for the races!

Q: HOW MUCH is camp?

Q: What are some other important details?

A: Phones are allowed. But athletes will be expected to put them away at Coach's request for group activities, training, and information sessions.

Please pack all swimming, cycling, and running equipment. Based on the weather for the day, please pack appropriate clothing and changes of clothes.

Q: What are your COVID-19 protocol?

A: We will be observing social distancing guidelines during camp. Upon arrival, campers will be assigned their personal "area" by laying a yoga mat or large towel on the ground. Campers and coaches will be discouraged from physical contact (hugs, high-fives, etc) except in an emergency. There will be NO sharing of food or drinks. We will have hand sanitizer available.

Each camper and their family will also be respectful and not bring a sick or ill athlete to camp...please notify us ahead of time and we will remove you from the list.
