Club Info: OA has been an active part of the local endurance community for several years through supporting local races and treating/ training local athletes of all levels. A new initiative for OA in 2011 was to further it’s community presence in the sport of triathlon and bring local endurance athletes in the southern Maine region together. The OA Tri Team was established to provide a network of support services, training and racing activities, friendship and fun for athletes of all ability levels. The development of the team was announced in the fall of 2010 during a seminar with Joe Friel (world renowned endurance athlete and coach) that was hosted at the OA Performance Center in Saco, ME. Since that seminar, OA Tri Team membership has grown to over 60. Our members include novices looking for support before completing their first triathlon, to veterans of Ironman competition. The club is run by the members; they organize all the activities (meetings, clinics, and workouts).
Through the winter off season the OA Performance Center hosts biweekly seminars geared toward the various aspects of the sport such as running mechanics, the importance of proper bike fitting, and in season strength training. An off season endurance program that includes spin/ strength classes, coaching, metabolic testing and movement assessments is also offered and many team members take advantage of this to build a stronger foundation.
Joining the club, and getting to know the other members, is a great way to introduce yourself to the world of triathlons, meet others who are passionate about the sport, and improve your athletic abilities, all while having fun. Discounts on OA services, supplements, training packages, as well as opportunities for team training and several other benefits are offered to team members. There is a schedule of training opportunities listed at www.orthoassociates.com/performance under the OA Tri Team icon. New members continue to join every week, and all interested are encouraged to contact the OA Performance Center for more information at 207-710-5509. Club Sponsors: Cyclemania

If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
