Big T’s is a fun and challenging triathlon training program for kids aged 13-17 years which introduces kids to the sport of triathlon and the only kids triathlon program of its kind in Canberra. Opportunities to train on a weekly basis to learn the skills and technique of swim, bike and run.
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. Big 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.
Big T’s is a program for the older kids just getting into the sport with opportunities for further development into other higher level triathlon programs if you son/daughter shows the potential to take the sport on seriously. Otherwise get fit, have fun and do some racing.
The weekend allows for the bike and run to be introduced and this is led by Coach Corey who has spent over 10 years developing junior triathletes to as high as representing Australia at an elite junior level. Sessions are held from Stromlo Leisure Centre and Stromlo Forest Park. For the convenience of families’ busy lifestyles sessions are for an hour and a half on Sunday afternoons to ensure there is no impact on other sports the kids may participate in.
Communication is via facebook messenger on the Big T’s Triathlon message group so contact us now if interested and we will add you so you know when the next session will be held.
