Journey Paratriathlon Camp – Arlington

June 16-19, 2022


Journey Paratriathlon Camp - Arlington, will be held June 16-19, 2022 on the beautiful campus of University of Texas at Arlington presented by Para Endurance Coaching.
This camp provides highly engaging & interactive instructions in the basics of paratriathlon through interactive drills and lectures in a safe, accessible environment.

It's geared to novice and intermediate levels, with an emphasis on first-timers. The camp is intended and designed for adults, but is accepting applications from youth 15 years old and up. Minors will be asked for recommendations & will be vetted to determine compatibility with the camp demands.

The three day experience blends educational and practical sessions in a usable, dynamic manner that culminates with a non-timed/non-competitive race simulation. We ask athletes to arrive on Thursday evening and we will conclude by mid-day on Sunday. 

This camp is: 
·       designed and led by certified USA Paratriathlon coaches and assisted by experienced para-athletes and vetted volunteers.
