Building Junior Triathlon in the Capital
Canberra Junior Triathlon Development Academy – providing opportunities for kids between 8 years to 18 years of age. This new and exciting opportunity that is targeted at rebuilding junior triathlon within the Canberra and regional NSW community. Building and supporting a healthy lifestyle for kids while having fun at all levels of the sport.
If your son/daughter is interested then we are seeking athletes from the Canberra and NSW region, allowing all kids to enjoy a very rewarding sport and are taught the basic skills of triathlon covering all aspects of the sport including technique for all three discipline’s and transitions. Catering for all levels of juniors in a squad environment.
This program will encourage kids to register to be a part of a team of young triathletes just like registering for Little A’s, or a team sport or any other sport for that matter. The program will run each year between September and April with a break over Christmas with the first training session to commence in September 2019 and finish in April 2020.
The Canberra Junior Triathlon Development Academy will provide kids the opportunity to learn the craft of triathlon with the help of experience coaches and led by one of Australia’s most experience High Performance and Junior Development Specialist Coachs Corey Bacon. Corey has been working in the junior space for over 10 years and continues to develop and improve kids swim, bike and run skills and abilities to the highest level in the country.
Being a member of the Academy is free and registration for the 2019/20 season will open in June and commence in September in preparation for the new triathlon season.
The Canberra Junior Triathlon Development Academy will also set pathways for kids wanting to compete at a state and national level, competing locally and interstate as a team. Athletes registering will also have the opportunity to attend triathlon camps and represent ACT at the Australian Schools Triathlon Championships each year once they start High School and continue through into College if they desire. If athletes follow the pathway they can also represent the ACT at the elite junior level racing in the Australian Junior Triathlon Series, supported by Triathlon ACT. If that doesn’t interest you, then racing at the local ACT/NSW triathlon events including duathlon and/or aquathons is also a great opportunity and lots of fun for your son/daughter.
