Cadence Tri Junior Triathlon Team
The Junior Team caters for children from age 8 to 14 and for youths and junior from age 15 to 19. From age 8 to 12 the focus is on sport with fun. The older children follow a more performance specific session which complements the British Triathlon pathway standards but have plenty of fun elemens incorporated.
We run a tandem weekly 2 hour sessions take place every Saturday between 2 and 4 pm at Buckley Leisure Centre. Each 2 hour session consists of an hour dryside (run/bike/transition) and an hour poolside. Every session is structured to develop skills and stamina. Throughout the year we have "training" aquathons, duathlons and triathlons to prepare for the interclub and open events.
The club runs weekly open water swim sessions at Hope during the summer which the more profficient swimmers can take part in.
The club is also has partnership agreements with the local swim club which allows to swim 4 times a week. Youth/Junior athletes can also join in with the adult run/swim/bike sessions.
We have a enthusiastic and well experienced xcoaching team comprising of a Level 3 Senior Triathlon Coach, 2 level 2 Triathlon coaches, level 2 cycle coach and level 1 tri coaches.

Set up Monthly Payments
For monthly payments a standing order will need to be set up for £15 per month. This is calculated by taking the number of sessions we run in the year and averaged out to a monthly charge. This allows for some months when we have 5 sessions and during the school summer holidays we don't run at all. The standing order however needs to run throughout the year.
