A bit about our training sessions

Our aim is to provide a fun but challenging environment for the coaching of all three triathlon disciplines.

Our run sessions for the younger group will hopefully be fun and focus on the fundamental aspects of movement (Agility, balance, co-ordination) through a number of games and circuits. For all groups we’ll be working on the technical aspects of running before progressing to longer, harder, and faster running. With the session lasting 60 minutes the athletes will also be doing a good cardiovascular workout.

Bike sessions again work on the technical aspects along with some fitness work incorporated.

Children must be ticked on the register when arriving and before leaving.

We are keen to get some feedback on the sessions from both participants and parents and if you have any questions please email Martin Varey by clicking here.

The club is open to 8-16 year olds (as of 31st December) and our aim is to provide a safe and fun environment for the teaching and development of the three disciplines that make up a triathlon, namely swimming, cycling, and running. The club adheres to the British Triathlon Federation (BTF) Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy and are affiliated to the BTF which provides public liability insurance for all official club coaching sessions.

Members can commit to as much or as little training as they desire with no pressure to compete.
