The sessions are open to children aged between 7 and 15. Parents/Carers of children aged over 8 are welcome to watch or to leave the children in our care, however children under the age of 8 must be accompanied at all times.

We realize that only having the facilities to training twice a month is not enough for some people to progress as much as they’d like so I have compiled a list of some other local training events/clubs that would enhance your triathlon performance.
