Triathlon Club Presentations
As a service to USA Triathlon, Coach Bill is available to speak at triathlon club meetings in the Boston area, for no charge. All presentations must be scheduled well in advance. These presentations can be done in 45 minutes to one hour. All presentations are in PowerPoint format, and most include video clips. Coach Bill will bring a laptop computer, but the host club will need to supply a PC projector or large-screen monitor for viewing.
The following presentations are currently available. Contact Coach Bill to schedule a presentation.
