Hol­i­day clin­ics prove good fun

Avon Valley Gazette - - SPORT -

THE school hol­i­days pro­vided the per­fect train­ing ground for young­sters to try their hand at triathlon.

Phoenix Triathlon Club sec­re­tary Claire Slater said it had launched a club in the Perth Hills to cater for in­di­vid­u­als of all abil­i­ties who would like to have a go.

“A big em­pha­sis for the club is to en­cour­age chil­dren to have a go and de­velop a love for all things swim, bike and run,” she said.

“We held two very suc­cess­ful Trys­tars clin­ics at Guild­ford Gram­mar, where chil­dren learnt ocean wa­ter swim­ming tech­niques, bike han­dling skills, tran­si­tion essen­tials and most im­por- tantly how much fun triathlons are.”

The club will hold ju­nior ses­sions in term 4.

“All ses­sions, while fun, cater for all abil­i­ties and are about de­vel­op­ing skills and work­ing to­wards achiev­ing your own goals,” Ms Slater said.

“Start­ing next month there will also be reg­u­lar ocean wa­ter swims at Lake Leschenaultia.”

Stu­dents are be­ing en­cour­aged to have a go at the sport of triathon.
