Junior Tri Club
Whether your child is just beginning in triathlon or is looking to enhance their skills within the sport, our junior triathlon club caters for children from the age of 8 to 14.
Our junior club members are introduced to exercises and drills to improve their technique in all three disciplines, as well as build their confidence and stamina. Our qualified coaches explain and instruct the unique triathlon skills of transition each week, train the children in open water skills around inflatable buoys in the pool, and then they have the opportunity to put all their learning into practice in mini-duathlon challenges each term.
We encourage our team members to register for our own aquathlon events at Guildford Lido each summer, as well as the Triathlon England South-East region junior series and other local junior events.
Our sessions run for 1 or 2 hours on a Saturday afternoon at Surrey Sports Park sometime between 12.30 – 3.30pm depending on their allocated training group. A plan for the term is issued in advance so you know what kit to bring but no specialised equipment is necessary to join: general running and swimming kit and a roadworthy bike and helmet are all they need.
All of our sessions are currently full for Spring Term 2018 and regretfully we have had to close the waiting list. We will review during Easter holidays 2018 and update this page with the latest standing.
For details on other junior triathlon activities in the area, please see the British Triathlon website: https://www.britishtriathlon.org/juniors
If you have any other questions not related to the waiting list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
