Junior Triathlon Training Sessions in Windsor
The Kids Triathlon Club at Windsor was set up following the excitment of the Olympic glory. A triathlon training club aimed at children aged 8 – 14 years can be found in Windsor.
The sessions will form part of Windsor's hugely successful Evolution Triathlon Club which launched in 2009.
The club have already been running a trial junior section at the Clewer Memorial Rec, and it is hoped that the new sessions will attract new children all keen to take part in one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. Triathlon is an endurance sport that includes swimming, biking and running.
Head Coach and founder Kevin Wallace commented “Triathlon has seen a surge in popularity over the last few years and recently took centre stage at the London 2012 Olympics where British brothers Alistair and Jonathan Brownleee took Gold and Bronze respectively. The sport is great for kids as the fun bit is training across the 3 different sports of swimming, biking and running. We’re really excited about the new sessions”.
The club will cater for all abilities with three different training squads; Foundation, Development and Performance which will involve beginners to the sport as well as really push those showing talent in the sport. Leading the coaching will be Kevin Wallace, British Triathlon Federation (BTF) coach, Personal Trainer & Open Water Swimming Coach.
Kevin commented “We already have a great bunch of kids in The Windsor area and I am really excited about discovering new talent locally as well as introducing children to this fantastic sport.”
Children can trial for the club during the year that they turn eight, however they need to be able to swim 100 mtrs without stopping and ride a bike. The new club runs from 5 pm to 6pm every Thursday evening at Montem Leisure Centre, and Clewer Memorial Rec on Saturday afternoons at 2.30PM throughout the year and the session covers all 3 disciplines. Sessions cost around a fiver a week with a discount for siblings. For further information please contact the Club, 07780 994772, www.evotri.co.uk
