The Extended Camp will be limited to a maximum of FIFTEEN athletes. This will allow us to bring a very personal atmosphere to the first three days of the Extended Camp with a lot of face-time with the coaches and a great deal of attention to technique. Athletes will arrive in Clermont, FL on February, 16th for our Welcome Dinner that evening. Athletes will depart a week later on Sunday, February 23rd.

What are you responsible for?
We are going to do a lot of things for you, but you still have a few responsibilities... we're all adults, right? You are responsible for getting to Clermont by January 27th for the Extended Camp. You are responsible for having swim, bike, and run gear ready for camp before camp begins (bring wetsuits). You are responsible for having a place to sleep during camp, and a way of getting to camp activities. Most importantly, you are responsible for having a GREAT time and gaining some big time skills and fitness!!

Still not sold!? Feel free to reach out to any of our previous campers or see what they had to say in our post-race survey:
"Getting the chance to meet some awesome people and quality training/information. Learned so much in those few days."
"Part of why I loved the camp was that it was a nice balance of work hard, and then have fun/socialize with the group. The opening dinner was a great start ...and of course the end of camp party was great!"
"As long as the general format and the staff stay in place, I will 100% be back (and if price is about the same) The mix of hard sessions and time to chill out and relax with the team was perfect, and the staff were great."
-If you're one of our coached athletes, this is a no-brainer! This is the perfect opportunity to get in solid training, with YOUR coach, and take that athlete-coach relationship to the next level.
-If you are on the Baucco squad, this is a great chance to really get to know your teammates!! We have fostered a strong team environment among our athletes. This is the perfect chance to suffer, sweat, socialize, and have a blast with all those people.
