December Holiday Update

Dear Triathlon Families,

Our triathlon program will be closing down over the Christmas/New Year period from Friday 11 December & returning Monday 11 January. Stuart wants to thank all those who have taken part over the past 5 weeks and is super keen to get back into training in the new years with some big plans ahead.

As of Monday 11 January our new timetable will take effect for the 2 week holiday period and continue over Term 1. This timetable may change over the Term depending on training loads and interest.

Thank you and see you all for the Come & Tri It event on Friday 11 December.

Latest Update (Mon, 19 Oct)

Thank you to all who have submitted an expression of interest in participating in Triathlon’s return at GSA. We are passionate about getting Triathlon restarted again and are confident Stuart is the man to get you all to love Swimming, Riding and Running collectively. If you haven’t yet told us you are keen to be a part of Triathlon, it’s not too late, please complete this google form.

Our program will commence Week 4 of Term (26-10-2020) and will be subject to change overtime based on the athletes skills, competencies and fitness. At this stage, based on current expressions of interest we have developed the attached Timetable. For those athletes who are new to Triathlon or want to get back into things at a steady pace, the Just Tri It group will be for you. For those who are a bit more Tri savvy, Junior Triathlon will be where you start. Through the coming weeks Stuart will grade you accordingly so as to ensure athletes are appropriately challenged. We hope to see additional sessions/days added to the squads over time.

We will be holding a meet the coach session on Wednesday 21 October between 7:00am-8:00am at the Pool. This will give you an opportunity to hear about Stuart’s goals and coaching philosophies for the program, as well as to determine the right squad for you initially.

If you are happy to register for a relevant squad, please email stipulating your child’s name, age and preferred squad.

We look forward to seeing you all at the information session on Wednesday & participating in the program very soon.
