Message from Triathlon Canada:
As Canada’s National team is focussed on earning spots for the Olympic and Paralympic Games team this summer, the next generation of Junior and Under-23 athletes are focussed on 2020 and 2024. The National Performance Center in Victoria BC, led by renowned coach Jonathon Hall, is developing Canada’s Next Generation of Olympic Triathletes through a balanced approach of training and education. The goal of the NPC is to support the next generation of athletes to achieve their academic goals in high-school while building the technical skills, mental resilience and physical endurance to excel in triathlon. All contributions made through this initiative will go directly to NPC Development athletes and will support their direct needs such as travel costs and equipment.
