Summer Camp Info
Location: Lake Louisa State Park (Clermont, FL)
ALL SLAP Summer Camps are TBD. We are waiting to release updates, details, and registration when the country is out of CORVID-19 lockdown.
Q: WHO is this camp for?
A: ANY kids that want to come train, learn, and have fun with the SLAP Coaches and SLAP Youth & Junior Tri Team! All ages, experience levels, and ability are welcome to attend camp.
Campers will be divided into "beginner", "intermediate", and "Junior Elite" groups for the training sessions.
The Junior Elite athletes will be focusing on draft-legal racing skills and must have a road bike.
Athletes do not have to be local or part of the SLAP Tri Team to attend camp! We are the largest and most experienced 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: WHAT is the camp focus?
A: Each camp will work on cycling, running, transitions, mental skills, strength, stretching, and much more. We will be determining which camps will include swim practice at the NTC pool.
Each camp will have a special Guest Speaker to share their personal triathlon, motivation or fitness story with the group. These might be professional triathletes, other coaches, or just an individual with a special story.
Q: WHEN is camp?
A: Camp is from 9:00a to 4:00p. The dates are:
- December 21
- January 4
- January 25
- February 15
Q: WHERE is camp?
A: Camp will be held at Lake Louisa State Park in Clermont, FL. All activities will take place inside the beautiful state park. Open water swimming in Lake Louisa (depending on temperature and wetsuits) or at the NTC pool, biking on the quiet, safe roads within the park, and running on the miles of off-road trails.
Q: WHY are we hosting this camp?
A: We hope that everyone has had a relaxing break since the triathlon season ended in August. Our goal is to get the SLAPPERS excited, interested, and engaged in the sport this winter before organized weekly training sessions start in March.
There will be at least 3 SLAP Coaches on site at each camp to work with the 3 groups of athletes.
Let our expert SLAP Coaches teach your SLAPPERS how to be faster triathletes with swim, bike, and run training. We will also work on inter-personal skills with ice-breaker games and team-bonding games activities.
Q: HOW MUCH is camp?
A: Each 7 hour day camp is $125. We are offering a $400 special to attend all 4 camps.
Q: Anything else?
A: Phones are allowed. But athletes will be expected to put them away at Coach's request for group activities, training, and information sessions.
Parents are welcome to stay in the park for their personal training and are invited to attend the Guest Speaker session during lunch hour (please bring your own food).
**Athletes with special dietary restrictions will need to provide their own food.**
**Athletes are welcome and encouraged to bring snacks and food from home...but everything MUST be shared with the other campers!
