WHAT IS THE PROGRAMME?

The junior programme has been running for many years for children aged 10 years and above. It is run over Term 4 and Term 1 of the school year. We have a team of coaches who will help your children with triathlon specific skills across all three sports. All abilities are welcome however it is expected the athletes can swim at least 100m continuously without much difficulty to be part of the programme. 

Children are split into groups based on age and ability.

  • Junior squad – ages 10-13. (9 year olds can sign up if they are competent swimmers and can safely ride on the road)

  • Teens squad – ages 13+

  • Canterbury Triathlon Academy 14years + for elite performance (qualifying criteria applies). More on the CTA here: CTA Info Page

All children are encouraged to take part in the local triathlons over summer (Triathlon Festival, Christmas Cracker, Corsair Classic and Sea2Sky). There are duathlon options for those that are not quite up to longer open water swims.

 

WHEN ARE TRAINING SESSIONS ?

  • Thursdays 4:30-5:30pm

  • Sundays 9-10:15am

At this stage we do not offer any sessions in the winter period (Terms 2 and 3 of the school year).

 

WHERE ARE SESSIONS?

Training sessions are at a variety of venues with Waltham Pool as our main base (we have a club room there where we can do indoor bike sessions if the weather is rubbish).

Please scroll to the bottom of this page for the coming terms venues. 

 

EQUIPMENT

  • Mountain bikes are fine and encouraged for younger athletes.

  • We like children to purchase a t-shirt and wear to training

  • We also have Tri Suits for purchase for racing (it is best to save them for racing not use too much during training)

 

COSTS

  • Juniors $99/term

    • Discounts are applied for families or 2 or 3 kids.

    • You also become a member of the Canterbury Tri Club so are eligible for discounts on race entry fees.

These fees do not include pool admission.
