Mentoring is about learning and this is your opportunity to connect with a more experienced triathlete to learn with her/him.
What is mentoring?
Mentoring is a voluntary relationship between an experienced athlete and a new or less experienced athlete. Mentoring is an opportunity to receive guidance and support from experienced triathletes. Mentors are not coaches but rather a guide on the side that you can use as a sounding board, for motivation or accountability, ask lots of questions or whatever parameters you and your mentoring partner agree to. A mentor’s role is to share their knowledge and experience by listening to, questioning and helping guide mentees in a positive and effective way to obtain their goals.
Mentors have an opportunity to learn too. The context for our program is a mutual learning relationship where both mentees and mentors establish goals for the duration of the program.
