About Coaching Community Conversations

Questions? Please email: Melissa.Otterbein@usatriathlon.org

USA Triathlon Education is providing a free coach learning and networking conversation the first Thursday of each month. We don't expect coaches to stay the whole time- simply pop in at any point during that time for conversation with coaches. This month's conversation focuses on all things officiating for race day success!
