Triathlon Training

Visiting Athletes

The National Training Center offers unparalleled, year-round training opportunities for visiting triathletes, including individuals, groups, camps, and clinics. Triathletes can take advantage of our 70 meter x 25 yard pool featuring 8 long course lanes, 27 short course lanes, and a zero-depth entry.

Clermont, Florida is the ideal training destination for triathletes, with South Lake County receiving designations as a Runner Friendly Community by the Road Runners Club of America and as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists.

For individual athletes training without a coach, we suggest a Temporary Membership, which offers visiting athletes the opportunity to use the facility during regular membership hours.

Training for Teams and Camps

The NTC hosts teams for their training trips throughout the year, offering unparalleled training experiences throughout our campus: aquatics center, fitness center, athletic fields, track, Human Performance Lab, classroom meeting spaces, on-site catering, and café. These venues offer teams an all-inclusive experience, while the close proximity and scheduling optimizes both training and rest times for athletes.

Groups, camps, clinics, and athletes with a coach receive scheduled facility sessions and pool lanes, as well as complimentary facility access for the coach.
