Training

ALL JUNIORS looking to join the club are required to be at ASA Level 8 standard or higher, swim or have swum with a competitive club. Alternatively, upon their first session, Juniors will be assessed by Junior Head Coach, Dean Crow to ensure they reach the minimum standard required. To see what kind of standard this is, click on the link.

Bike:-

We currently don’t offer regular coached cycling sessions for Juniors. There are often opportunities at British Cycling or British Triathlon organised events during school holidays, which we signpost Juniors to.

As mentioned below, in the summer/ race season, our Thursday track session often involves bike handling skills, mounting/dismounting and working on running off of the bike!

Run:-

Thursdays at Brickfields athletics track 18.00 – 19.00 (trackside by 17.50)

Covered in the session:

  • Full warm up
  • Drills
  • Running techniques
  • Pacing/speed/endurance (changes each week)
  • Running within a group to simulate race scenarios

In the summer and race season, we do 6-8 weeks of bike handling skills such as moving with the bike, mount and discount as well as transition training to get them ready to race.

The session caters for athletes aged 8-18. Please bring your membership card and wear appropriate clothing for the session, according to the season it could be hot or cold!
