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


Dates: 21 - 25 January 2018

Location: Nelson. Accomodation at Tahuna Beach Kiwi Holiday Park.

                  (You can also turn up for each day if you are based in Nelson)

Coaches: Mark Grammer, Rebecca Scherp

Places available: 16

What you will learn: 

Triathlon fundamentals: How to train, what skills you need to develop and how to put three sports together on race day.

Open water confidence:: Being able to swim comfortably in open water is a different thing to swimming in the relative comfort of a pool.
