As the off-season draws to an end, it's time to start looking towards race-specific skills again. At Team Playtri, we will begin to work on transitions this month, since our first team triathlon is March 3rd. The primary goals for young athletes in transition are:
- Self-Confidence (not needing an adult to physically or verbally assist)
- Neatness (having only the essentials laid out in an organized fashion)
- Smoothness (being able to get through transitions instinctively with little thought)
The following article will walk you through some things you can practice at home, and also introduce you to many of the concepts and skills we will be working on with athletes at practices in the coming month.
