Building Junior Triathlon in the Capital
If your child loves to swim, ride their bike and run then Little T’s Triathlon may be for them. The Little T’s Triathlon program gives kids the opportunity to participate in swimming, cycling and running in a fun and safe environment. It will be operated out of Canberra’s Olympic Pool in the City so a central location for all. Some sessions (Sunday) will also be held at Dairy Road, Fyshwick away from any traffic.
Each Saturday the kids will be provided with swim technique coaching and also other fun swimming activities related to triathlon. On occasion the kids will also participate in an aquathon so plenty of practice learning transitions. On a Sunday afternoon at either the City pool or Dairy Road, Fyshwick the kids will enjoy riding their bike over a bike skills course, honing their bike skills while also practicing their bike to run transitions. Plus learning basic bike riding signalling while riding on bike paths and/or eventually on the roads. The kids will also run and combine both the bike and run in a fun race at the end. When at the City pool once a month on a Sunday the kids will get to participate in a proper triathlon event. Fun Fun Fun.
Experienced coaches will teach the kids freestyle swimming (must be able to swim 50m), cycling technique and skills, the fundamentals of transitions and run technique and general fitness.
There is no longer limited opportunities for kids to race because each week they will do aquathons, duathlons and triathlons and they can do it with their friends as part of the Little T’s Triathlon Program.
The program is developed and implemented by Coach Corey Bacon who has been involved in triathlon for over 20 years. He has been actively involved in local triathlon clubs and more heavily involved in developing junior triathlon in Canberra and surrounding regions for over 10 years.
The new and exciting Little T’s Triathlon program runs on Saturday and Sundays from 3-4pm. Communication to parents is via FB messenger so let us know if you want to know what is going on each week.
