ANNUAL TRIATHLON CAMP

Each year in the last week of January we hold a Triathlon Camp.  This focusses primarily on pool and open water swimming, transition skills for triathlon, cycling and running.  This is suitable for fit beginners to intermediate athletes from Yr 7 to 13.

This is a great opportunity for kids starting out in triathlon to learn the skills required to put together a number of different sports in the one event. For more advanced kids, it's a week to prepare for more important events on the horizon, such as the National Secondary Schools Triathlon Champs, which are being held in Nelson in March 2018
