We currently train every other Sunday at Stanground School 11am-1pm which includes run/bike and swim sessions. The main objective is for the children to enjoy themselves and develop their skills.
The only pre-requisite is that any new member needs to be capable of swimming 2 lengths of a 25 metre pool using front crawl unaided before they can join. This is for safety.
Typically, the 1st hour of the session will be a run / bike session on the school field. Bike handling skills are taught along with transition practice. The 2nd hour will be pool based and involve swim drills then normally finishing with 'fun' relays.
Depending on numbers we try and match the children into groups of similar age & ability. We are aware of the cost of equipment so are keen to make sure that the children see this as an activity they want to take up before parents spend too much money!
For equipment to bring, any bike will be OK as long as it is good working order. A helmet is essential again for safety reasons. Running is in shorts, t-shirt, trainers & you may need a wind proof jacket. The swim requires a costume and goggles.
All sessions need to be pre-booked at our booking site: PACTRAC
We can cope with all abilities from raw novice to experienced triathletes.
We also try to get the parents involved so if you come down let us know if you can help with time-keeping or marshalling!
