Zone3sports offers one of the best triathlon focused swim program in Ottawa. The overwhelming majority of the participants are triathletes. The coach is a triathlete.

Zone3sports has been offering one of the best triathlon focused swim program in Ottawa for over 15 years, and it just got better: we have expanded to the east end with a wonderful partnership with none other than Olympian Sharon Donnelly, as well as Adam Kourakis of Velofix.

Sharon was one of the best swimmers in the sport of triathlon.  She knows and understands what it is to race in the open water, and to be nervous about it.

Adam is a self-proclaimed tri-geek who has his degree in human kinetics as well as his NCCP certification in all 9 streams, and his L1 certification in Triathlon and Multi-Sport.
