PTC Mini Minor Junior Clinic
PTC Mini Minor School Holiday Clinics
Fun…fun…fun, that is what our young up and coming super stars can expect from PTC’s junior clinic. PTC introduced a PTC Mini’s squad in 2013/14 with a small number of kids between the ages of 7-13 years. The success of the Mini’s and the obvious enjoyment of the athletes during training sessions has led to the implementation of a new PTC Mini’s Junior Clinic. This is attributed to the hard work of previous PTC Coach Bree and Coach Jordie who revelled in the challenge of developing these young up and coming super stars.
If your son/daughter has shown potential in swimming, cycling and running and they are keen to tri triathlon then why not send them to the clinic to learn the fundamentals of the sport.
It is important to note that for safety reasons we do require your son/daughter to be able to swim 100-200m continuously in the freestyle stroke.
Clinic participants must have a bike that is in good working order and an Australian Approved Helmet.
The PTC Mini’s Clinics objective is to:
- Promote skill development, knowledge and encourage participation in the sport of triathlon.
- Motivate Mini’s and have fun.
- Increase participation in junior triathlon.
- Build Mini’s confidence across all disciplines
