WELCOME TO OUR SPONSORSHIP PAGE!

The Canterbury Triathlon Academy (CTA) works with talented triathletes, aged 15 - 20 from the Canterbury region, who are all working towards New Zealand and Elite representation on the international triathlon stage.

Developing triathletes from having an interest, and some aptitude, in the sport at a young age, through to their ability to be competitive on the international stage is a multi-year, multi-disciplined journey.

There is no lack of passion and commitment from the squad of CTA athletes, but funding that journey is expensive. Most national triathlon events are hosted in the North Island, the cost of funding training camps and specific coaching adds up, squad uniforms, cycling and triathlon specific clothing is expensive.

These athletes often put in 15 hours or more of training per week, so between school work and training, there is not a lot of spare time to undertake part-time work to supplement these costs – this fundraising project is their way of contributing some of their time by keeping you informed of their journey and including you as part of their key support network to help them achieve their sporting dreams

 SO, .....

This is your opportunity to help some of the Canterbury Regions most talented multi-disciplined athletes to achieve their dreams and goals, and be part of that journey with them. Here is what's in for you:

 

  • Get in on the ground floor supporting a future potential Olympian achieve their dreams
  • Gain access to your athletes Triathlon Facebook page -  which is kept up to date with their training, events, results, photos etc
  • Bi-monthly run / bike / swim with your athlete –  time to form a personal bond with someone who may one day represent New Zealand at the highest level
  • Bi-monthly invitation to all sponsors to join a run session with John Hellemans and the CTA athletes
  • Quarterly newsletter updates on all athletes
  • Free Canterbury Triathlon Club membership (excluding family and TriNZ TriBE membership)
  • Invitation to CTA’s end-of-season celebration
