Our practice environment is a FUN, high-energy, positive atmosphere that encourages personal growth and team camaraderie. Intentional focus to meet the athlete where they are, and progress from there. Strong mental skills and positive self-talk are fundamental aspects of our program.
Palmetto TRIbe’s Junior Team is a travel triathlon team designed for any High Schooler enrolled in 9-12th grade residing in the greater Charleston area, and able to attend weekly practices held in locations around Mt Pleasant and downtown Charleston. Junior team athletes will be coached through a strategic 16-week periodized training cycle, intended to build performance gains through a series of base and build cycles. The team will race in a mix of USAT-sanctioned and non-sanctioned races locally, and well as a few trip to neighboring states, NC and/or GA. “A-race” focus will be the USAT National High School Championships, held every Spring.
Our coaching efforts are rewarded when we see the emergence of well-rounded athletes, that have a strong sense of personal identity, work ethic, team values, and passion for sport…and life! Team rally: SWIM – BIKE – RUN – TRIbe!
