We are seeking one or two assistant coaches for the upcoming OAT Junior/U23 Development Camp. The number of assistant coaches hired will depend on camp registration.

Program: 2009 OAT Development Camp
Dates: Sat. June 27th to Sat. July 4th
Athletes: Junior (16-19) and U23 (20-23)


The Ontario Association of Triathletes (OAT) is pleased to announce the 2009 Development Camp for junior (16-19) and U23 (20-23) athletes. The camp will take place from Saturday June 27th to Saturday July 4th, at the Provincial Triathlon Centre at the University of Guelph.

Provincial Coach Craig Taylor will be the head coach for this camp, in addition to one or two additional NCCP-certified coaches, depending on camp registration. Athletes will train at the University of Guelph and surrounding areas, including Guelph Lake conservation area.

This camp is designed primarily for athletes currently racing draft-legal triathlons, or intending to race draft-legal triathlons in the future. Athletes who race non-drafting formats are welcome to apply, with the understanding that most of the cycling sessions will focus on pack riding. Athletes may ride a time trial or road bike during the camp. Athletes should expect three training sessions on most days, with one or two easy sessions on recovery days. Programming consideration will be given to athletes competing at the Canadian Junior National Triathlon Championships in July 11th, to ensure that athletes are adequately recovered prior to the race. Athletes seeking draft-legal certification can obtain their draft-legal certification at this camp, pending a successful review of their skills by camp coaches.


Coaches are encouraged to see the Development Camp RFP link for application details.

Applications will be accepted until Friday May 22nd, 2009, at 5:00 p.m. EST.
