Welcome and thanks for taking an interest in the Triathlon Clinic for Kids – The aim is to provide a safe and fun environment to introduce kids to the basics of a triathlon and improve triathlon specific skills.

Age groups

Kids of 5 and upwards will be welcome – the kids will be split into age specific groups and rotate through modules – each group can then be targeted specifically for that age range with the younger kids getting the first introductions and the older kids honing the triathlon skills for bigger races.

We will also be hosting a parent focused session with advice and guidance on how to best support and help your kids during a triathlon.  What to do, what to bring, how to get the best out of being a spectator and how to help your little one enjoy the day.  We know that nothing beats enthusiasm and cheering for our little ones and hope we can guide your energy in the best way.
