Junior Triathlon Training

We will start in the pool until 24/25th May then move to Hazelwood & Open Water from 5th to 26th June.
The programme will be working to develop open water swimming technique & specific open water skills such as stroke rate, sighting & drafting.
Running in parallel will be a freestyle technique session for the less experienced swimmers. This will be aimed and improving freestyle technique & fitness. Specifically working on breathing. alignment, catch and pull.
Dry land sessions will focus on swim specific mobility, strength & conditioning.
Note: We cannot cater for learn to swim (Facility Rules). Therefore you need to be able to swim a minimum of 2 lengths unassisted. Ideally you should take some swimming lessons if you can’t swim the required distance. With that in mind the sessions are open to anyone of any level.
