New Masters Session
Session II starts January 14th. Registration information for this ten week session is attached.

Team Training Sessions
I'm working on organizing some group training options starting in the spring. Hopefully we will have the Lums Pond OWS again. I think I will be able to get McKean High School's track one night a week (most likely Mondays) and I have someone who is willing to lead group rides one night a week. If you are interested in coaching/leading/organizing any of these things let me know. My Saturday morning swim practices are starting to fill back up again so if you want in on that contact me.

Team Racing Schedule
Here are the races that we are focusing on as a team. The goal again is to win Piranha’s club championship. Don’t forget everyone’s race results count toward team points. And you don’t have to limit yourself to these races. Visit Piranha’s website for more details.

Marymount University Varsity Triathlon Program seeks motivated athletes
ArlingtonVa.Marymount University has added both men’s and women’s triathlon to its sports offerings. While many universities around the country currently have club-level triathlon teams, Marymount is the first university offering a varsity-level triathlon program.
Marymount has hired Zane Castro as head coach of both teams. Castro, formerly of AustinTexas, has 15 years of experience coaching triathlon at both the national and international levels. Castro is hoping to bring in athletes who have already had strong performances at the Junior level, as well as athletes who have a strong history of swimming or running in high school that will aid them in switching to triathlon.
“Right now, college kids usually have to choose either running or swimming. They might reach a high level in one of these disciplines during college, but the other disciplines will suffer. Collegiate triathlon is an opportunity for triathletes to improve in all three disciplines throughout their four years in college, which is what they need to be competitive at the next level,” says Castro.
Marymount will field its first team in the fall of 2013. Castro is actively looking for athletes to fill five men’s and five women’s slots on the team.
Marymount’s Director of Athletics, Debbie Warren, was instrumental in promoting triathlon as the university’s next sport. Warren says, “Marymount seemed like an ideal place for a tri program because the weather is pretty mild and lends itself to year-round training.”
About Marymount: Marymount University is a liberal arts institution located in ArlingtonVa.—just outside Washington DC. The University’s proximity to the nation’s capital provides unique educational, professional and cultural opportunities for students while providing them a safe home in the quiet town of Arlington. Marymount provides a myriad of programs of study. Its most popular undergraduate programs are Business Administration, Nursing, Biology, and Information Technology. At the graduate level, Marymount is popular for its Forensic Psychology, Business Administration, Physical Therapy, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and Elementary Education programs.For more information, please contact Zane Castro at

Have a great week,
