Coaches Retreat - VIRTUAL
Our traditional Coaches Retreat - West Coast that is held on the Friday before IRONMAN® Arizona in Tempe, AZ, has been changed to a virtual online class for 2020 due to COVID-19. Although we will miss in-person contact and connections, we will still have outstanding presentations with fantastic interactions.
Come join Team MPI on our annual Coaches Retreat for a full day of instruction that will enhance your knowledge, introduce you to some of the best coaches in the country and earn you USA Triathlon and USA Cycling Coaching CEU's!
Team MPI's group of Coaches believe in collaboration and growth. Each Coach at Team MPI has a Coach Mentor, and every month a Professional Advancement of Coaching Education (PACE) video presentation is conducted by a different Team MPI Coach that brings the team together to learn and grow.
This belief in collaboration extends to those Coaches and athletes outside of Team MPI as well. That's why we've created our Coaches Retreats. Come join us online for a full day of interesting and inspiring presentations along with a warm social atmosphere that invites discussion, sharing and learning.
