This year’s Triventure theme is “Every Body Moving Forward”.

While the 2017 NIRSA Triventure will offer attendees three separate tracks to choose from, it’s overall theme encompasses the missions of all three institutes. Everybody—regardless of color, experience, or body shape—is invited to participate in collegiate recreation. All three institutes are also keeping an eye on the future as they keep attendees up-to-date on cutting edge programming and best practices.

If you work with facilities, in aquatics, or with fitness/wellness—or all of the above—get ready for the 2017 NIRSA Triventure in Marietta, Georgia from November 30-December 2!

The NIRSA Triventure comprises three institutes under one roof. Attend any educational session, facility tour, or social — regardless of specialty area.

The NIRSA Triventure was incredibly relevant to the work that we are currently doing in all three areas of recreation back on our campus. It was an excellent learning experience.

Dave Bryngil, Saint Peter's University

NIRSA Triventure is a great conference for a small university as these three areas are key for us and you can gain valuable info on all three areas. The size of the conference is great so that you can build relationships with those attending the conference in a more meaningful way due to the intimate nature of the sessions and the facility tours. Well Done!

Rin Seibert, Valparaiso University

It was a great opportunity to see some current clients, CSU – Fort Collins and University of Washington. We had the opportunity to meet new clients NDSU and Virginia Tech. We had the opportunity to keep the conversation going with potential clients the University of Central Florida and the University of New Hampshire. InnoSoft will continue to participate in the NIRSA Triventure.

Our Fitness and Wellness committee is offering a great preconference workshop focused on TriggerPoint Foam Rolling Level 1. Self-myofascial release (SMR) has been shown to relieve muscle and joint pains and improve flexibility and range of motion. This four hour workshop covers the fundamentals of myofascial, reviews the latest SMR research, and dives into the TriggerPoint SMR movement philosophy using the GRID foam roller. Participants walk away with practical knowledge and hands-on experience for coaching and cueing movements that can be scaled to all fitness levels for pre- and post-workout foam rolling.

Early Bird Registration Pricing On or Before October 18:
Member Price: $125 
Non-Member Price: $150

For aquatics minded individuals you have the choice between two great procon opportunities. One option is the Lifeguard Instructor/Trainer Review Course with Optional Basic Lifeguard Training Re-Certification. The primary purpose of this course is to ensure Instructors and Instructor Trainers can perform the skills, recognize correct and incorrect skill performance, and provide consistency of program skills and knowledge regarding the r.2017 updates to the Lifeguarding Program. This course includes classroom and in-water skills practice, skill drills, and a skills polish session. The course will also offer an optional opportunity to renew participants’ Basic Lifeguard Training Certification at no additional cost. Transportation to and from the host hotel will be provided, lunch will be on your own.
