REDCLIFFE TRIATHLON CLUB JUNIOR PROGRAM 2016

Redcliffe Tri Club offers a junior triathlon training program for school age children.   We aim to provide safe training environments overseen by qualified, experienced coaches.

Age – 8 years and up (with children age 5 – 7 able to join Monday night run session)

Our junior program aims to develop triathletes and give them the opportunity to progress in the sport to whatever level they aspire to.  In our current group, we have members who have competed at the Qld Schools Triathlon Championship, National Schools Triathlon Championships and members in the Triathlon Qld Junior Talent Squad.   Past juniors have also gone on to represent Australia at the World Championships.
