Welcome to the TriFury mentoring program. The goal of this program is to provide a way for team members to assist each other in our training and in our racing. By assisting each other, we can all grow as triathletes.
Triathlon is a very equipment and time intensive sport and quickly become overwhelming and intimidating. With the mentoring program, we intend to limit these factors and make the transition into the sport, as well as the transition to longer distance races, much easier.
So, what exactly is a mentor?
A mentor is someone that listens to questions and helps guide the mentee as a positive and effective way to obtain their goals. A mentor is not a coach. A mentor may not have the answers, but may have the knowledge to help the mentee discover the answers.
The extent of involvement between mentor and mentee is flexible and is at the discretion of each mentor and mentee.
Topics of discussion and guidance (a mentee may seek help in only one, a few or all of these areas)
A mentor may introduce the mentee to TriFury group training sessions and help find others seeking similar pace for that workout.
