The focus of ETC is on individual training activities for each of the traithlon-specific disciplines which may involve coaches in targeted areas and social activities for people interested in triathlon and multisports. We do not offer coached triathlon-specific training involving all 3 sports. There are several coaches in the Edmonton area who provide triathlon coaching.
Is ETC different than ATA?
Alberta Triathlon Association is the Provincial governing body for the sport of Triathlon. ATA organizes sanctions events, training camps and more. A membership with the ATA provides competitors with insurance for sanctioned events. For more information, go to the ATA website at http://www.triathlon.ab.ca
