Thunderbolt Kids Triathlon
~~~ RED TEAM - New to the sport ~~~
Newbies to the team who are learning the sport. No experience required.
FUN, skill development and understanding the sport is vital. Our Red team practices with the team but when we break up in to groups they go and learn their basic skills at their stations. Goal for this level is to race safely and have fun.
Basic skills include:
~~~ Yellow Team- Intermediate ~~~
Yellow Team is usually for returning team members who will be working to refine and develop more sports specific skills while continuing to build on the foundation for Green level. It is important to continue to build the frame work so the kids can achieve more goals and develop more skill levels.
~~~ Green Team- Advanced ~~~
Green Team is for kids with some tri experience but needs to work on and develop stronger skills and endurance levels to compete in a local Triathlon, a 5K, or just have fun with others while learning about the sport. The Green team is focusing on building a stronger frame work of knowledge for physical endurance, physical strength, a good understanding of nutritional concepts, the use and following of the USA Triathlon guidelines of Racing, having good time management for training, and the mental skills tools for self confidence and respect your team mates, while using safe training practice/habits, and of course a good dose of fun.
