WHAT: Camp No Sight No Limits is a high performance camp for experienced blind triathletes and guides looking to get faster, safer and more efficient as competitive athletes. It was founded by USA Paratriathlon National Team Member Amy DIxon. Amy is the Reigning Paratriathlon National Champion, ITU Aquathlon World Champion and 8 time Gold- medalist internationally. Amy began coaching blind athletes in 2017.
WHY: Amy felt frustrated at the lack of knowledge available from coaches in working with the specific vision loss that so many athletes had. No one seemed to know the nuances required to make them work more efficiently with their guides and how to coach the unique challenges one faces while blind; ie, transportation to workouts, swimming safely alone, running on treadmills, finding guides, using technology that is accessible, acquiring a tandem bike. Amy lends her expertise for 5 action-packed days, along with elite coaches with over 100 combined years of experience from Ironmans to the Olympics.
WHO: 15 blind athletes from across the USA and 15 guides will be participating this year. We have several coaches for swim, bike, run and strength, along with a team of experts in sports medicine, nutrition, sports psychology, adaptive technology and more.
