Little T’s is a fun triathlon training program that introduces kids to the sport of triathlon and the only kids triathlon program of its kind in Canberra. Even if your son/daughter swims in a squad, cycles with a club or runs with a run group, or participate in other team sports they can still do triathlon. Little T’s gives them the opportunity to develop and learn a range of basic motor skills which can benefit their other sports. Combine them and ‘tri’ a sport that provides an opportunity to participate in 3 sports rather than one.
There are two options available to participate in Little T’s training sessions and that is to be a part of their swim squad and/or the weekend triathlon program.
TriSwim Monthly Fees (includes both swim and triathlon session) – $50 August (2 weeks only) then $100 September and so on.
Little T’s Swimming
The weekday swim squad is for Little T’s aged between 7 and 13 and is coached by Coach Megan who is a Bronze qualified swim coach and has coached at a number of Clubs in Canberra. Coach Megan will focus on swim technique across all strokes keeping kids active and healthy and helping them to become better swimmers whether for fitness or competitively.
Coach Megan is passionate about swimming and has coached State swimmers and has an ability to motivate and pull a squad together while still having fun. Coach Megan is Mum to two boys, one a swimmer so she understands the pathways of competition and the good and hard times that comes with that. A swimmer herself, she swims most days as she says ‘once a swimmer always a swimmer, it’s in your DNA’
