Coaching & Clinics

Let our USA Triathlon and US Masters Swimming coaches help you achieve your goals.


For 2021 we will be offering our series of open water swim clinics to help athletes of all abilities to gain more experience with the sport of triathlon and open water skills. We are still planning on being able to do these clinics in Santa Cruz. It may require a bit of creativity but that’s the plan!

Check here for updates. Once we have dates we’ll post them.

Small group and individual swim and stroke coaching is available by appointment.

Women’s Race Ready Clinic – Canceled for 2020

Women’s Triathlon Training Clinic – this will help you be “race ready” for Tri Santa Cruz. Whether it’s your first one, or your want to improve your time, or step up to the longer distance this is a great place to start.

All Clinics are taught be USA Triathlon Certified Coaches or US Masters Certified Swim Coaches and supplemented by lifeguards, paddleboards, and experienced athletes.

If you are interested in more in-depth coaching than provided by a clinic please read on about our group and individual coaching.


Our focus is on personalized training that is built for you whether you are a beginner or an experienced athlete looking for some fine tuning. We don’t subscribe to the “one size fits all” training that you can buy online and download without ever having any personal contact with a coach. There’s a tangible difference between downloading a training plan from the internet and getting the personalized coaching that goes along with it. 

We can set you up with a plan that can be implemented with online calendars and workouts that fit your busy schedule, that enable you to log your effort and keep track of your results, but we insist that you go through an interview process beforehand to ensure that you are getting the correct level of skill development and workouts that match your needs. We also offer unlimited email access and scheduled checkpoints for monitoring your improvements. Each plan is customized for your level of expertise and matched to your racing and event goals.
