You are looking at it! We've merged the WGWW Team with the SLAP Tri Team to provide better coaching services, more training sessions, and quality equipment and team kits.

No worries! The #SLAPPERS are made up of all kids of endurance athletes...masters swimmers, duathletes, runners, swim/runners, adventure racers, aqua-bikers, etc. We provide experienced coaching for all!
Do I have to be part of the team to participate in training sessions, camps, clinics, etc?
Nope...but once you participate in one session with us, we consider you to be a part of the #SLAPPERS family. Technically, just sign the waiver and you are on the team!

Absolutely! The #SLAPPERS are all levels of athletes. We even have a beginner triathlon program (SLAP Try A Tri) that will help you get through your first race in 8 weeks.
I just want to learn how to swim. Can you help?
Yes, check out the SLAP Adult-Learn-to-Swim page and contact us for more details about setting up your first lesson!

We have a $10 single-session drop-in fee for all coached training sessions. This includes the swim practices, run workouts, etc. **ALL WGWW shop rides remain free.
Where can I get a bike and triathlon equipment?
Head over to Winter Garden Wheel Works bike shop on Plant Street in Winter Garden and tell them that SLAP sent you! The guys and gals in the shop will make sure you get all the gear you need, and nothing you don't!
