England Triathlon South-East Region offers many opportunities for young athletes to embark on their triathlon journey. Phoenix Triathlon supports local young competitors with novice events and skills camps to give them the confidence to race to the best of their ability.
Whilst the club is unable to offer regular training sessions for budding triathletes under the age of 18 years old, we do support local and regional training days and camps with coaching expertise and advice.
We would encourage all triathlon-keen young athletes 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. We also have coaches who work with the South-East Regional office to support Skills School sessions.
