Witney Triathlon Club was set up by Craig, Sean and Laura at the start of 2019 with the intention of offering triathlon specific training to local children between the ages of 8 and 16 years old. Our aim for the club is to allow athletes to flourish in the sport of triathlon and reach their full potential what ever that may be.
We are affiliated to England Triathlon and have achieved the TriMark Bronze accreditation. We have a Level 1 and Level 2 Triathlon Coach and other coaches with a large amount of experience in the sport. Profiles can be found in the who's who section of the website.
We have had to put a cap on the number of athletes we can accommodate to 30 but will be looking to increase this in the very near future. If you would like to be added to the waiting list please use the contact form.
Training and racing
Cycling and running training takes place on Saturday afternoons between 3:00pm - 4:15pm (weather permitting) and is based at Woodgreen School, Witney. Athletes should own a well maintained bicycle and more importantly a cycle helmet. No helmet no training!
Swim training follows on at the Windrush Leisure Centre, Witney between 5:00pm - 6:00pm.
Please note all children must be capable of swimming 50 mtrs (2 lengths) without undue stress as unfortunately we cannot offer swimming lessons.
Each season we will recommend a selection of external races which we think will provide race opportunities to all athletes of each age group and ability.
Our intention from the outset is to offer the club to everyone and in doing so making it as affordable as possible while covering our club running costs.
We currently charge a fee of £16:00 per month per athlete for attending training. For this cost we will guarantee a minimum of 40 run/bike sessions per year being provided. It will also cover the pool swim sessions. There will be times due to race schedules, coach availability and weather where some sessions will not be able to run so this allows some contingency although we will aim to put on as many sessions as possible.
Over time it is our intention to offer supplementary training sessions i.e. open water swimming and land training which will be charged over and above this again to cover costs only.
The combined Membership and Medical form can be found in the download section of the website.
