Mentoring First Time Triathletes
Triathlon can be an intimidating sport, but we know that every child courageous enough to stand on our start line has everything they need in order to make it across the finish line. In 2016, we started the RipRoar mentoring program to help athletes and parents alike as they prepare for and conquer race day. Mentor's begin writing first time triathlete's as soon as they register providing answers to common question, training tips or simply as a person to bounce ideas off of. On race weekend, they will be waiting at registration for their athlete's to show up with a poster, a smile and a high-five ready. RipRoar mentors are former youth triathlete's from local race markets.
