Junior Club

 This week, we are putting a very well deserved spotlight on our Junior Club and it’s incredibly talented members! Currently boasting 33 young athletes, this section of our club is firmly setting it’s foot in the sport of Triathlon in Ireland and is shining very bright.

The Junior Club was established in 2017 following expressed interest by many club members to have their children partake in club activities and training. Coach Olivia was instrumental in the Junior Club set-up and has worked tirelessly to create an outlet for our young athletes to train in a fun, professional and highly encouraging environment. Olivia’s efforts has allowed the club to run Junior sessions concurrently with the adult member training sessions, not only providing the opportunity for parents and children to train together and nurture that bond through sport, but also for adults and juniors to inspire each other, learn from each other and challenge each other.

Our Junior Athletes, aged from 10-19, train with us on the running track, at our pool sessions, at indoor turbo and most recently our virtual Zoom sessions. They swim with us in the lake, partake in group cycling sessions with their parents, take part and challenge themselves in open races and absolutely bring their heart and soul to all and any club events organised for them. 

“It's a pleasure from a coaching point of view to work with such a great bunch of kids. To watch them training and racing is inspirational, and they could teach us adults a thing or two about sportsmanship and determination.“ Coach Mick

Keep an eye out later in the week as we hear from some of our fantastic Junior Members, parents and coaches and take a run down of some of the events they have taken part in.
