Triathlon Kids offers a 5 week primary and secondary triathlon program suitable for before, after or during school. Our experienced Junior triathlon coaches will come to your school and deliver the program designed by National Awarded triathlon coach Mark Beovich. Students will have the chance to learn new triathlon skills and develop on the skills they already have. Our coaches will assist to improve their swimming, cycling, transition and running skills.
Due to high demand, associated with the Weetbix Tryathlon, certain days of our primary level program in Term 1 have a waiting list. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot.
Cost of the 5 week program is $50 per student with a minimum of 10 students for the program to proceed and a maximum of 25 students per coach. Payment can be collected from the school or arrangements can be made for user pay system online thru our website.
The program can be altered in length or content to cater for individual schools and we finish with a 5th week race!
A typical 5 week program would include coaching these aspects of triathlon.
|Week 1- Safety, Overall bike skills assessment||Week 2- Cornering, Running after bike||Week 3- Wading, Navigation and Sighting||Week 4- Transitions, Dismounts, Mounts||Week 5- Triathlon|
The primary and secondary programs differ in terms of style of coaching with the primary program a game based style with the secondary program a challenge style.
Comments from some of the schools from last season:
"Triathlon Kids Coaching is a fun and interactive program that the students thoroughly enjoy. The specialist coaches teach our students the basic triathlon skills and techniques and it caters for all students regardless of their prior experience. We look forward to developing and expanding our triathlon program in the coming years." Leigh Parsons, PE Teacher, Huntingtower
"Triathlon Kids is a wonderful program that I would recommend any school get involved with. Our students had an absolute fantastic time during our 5 week program. They really enjoyed Mark's well run and very organised training sessions, especially the Bike Riding skills and drills. Kids just don't get to ride their bike much nowadays! The competitive yet Fun triathlon at the end of the program was a great way to round off a really successful program. We will be giving Mark from Triathlon Kids a call again next year!"
