Relative Age Effect in Sport

Does a child’s birth date have an impact on their sporting career and selection prospects? I have chewed many an ear off from those polite enough to listen on my theories about how birth dates do impact in the developing years. Here is the article that supports it. https://believeperform.com/the-relative-age-effect-in-sport/

Go Series Race 1 2019/2020

It was great to finally get to race day after preparing for our race during this terms training sessions. Go-Series always puts on a great event and today was no exception. Special congratulations to our Tri debutants, Lily, Jake and Oliver. We were all well prepared not only fitness wise but with slick and smooth transitions. Whilst the focus is on having a go and doing your best it was especially pleasing to see 3 of our team win their respective category. We are looking for to race 2 on 16 February.

Our next training block starts on Wednesday 29 January 2020. Entries will open in the New Year.

Kids Tri Summer 2018 Wrap

The initial Kids Tri program completed in April 2018. It was great to see how far each participant had progressed over the 10 weeks both in skill and fitness. The best compliment we received was how much each kid looks forward to training each week and can it continue over winter. We do need to break over Winter but the Spring 2018 program will start on 12 September 2018. This will be a 10 week program, but there will be a break during the School Holidays.

Throughout the program it was great to see and hear about participants doing well at the school sporting events in particular making Zone and State Swimming carnivals and State Cross Country Carnivals, with participants making significant improvements on previous years placings. This is down to consistency in Training.

We did finish the season with a duathlon at training with a chance to put the skills into practice. We also attended Tri Pink at Maroubra with great results placing in the top 4 place getters or above. Our last event was the NSTC (Northern Suburbs Triathlon Club) Obstathlon event, which was more of a focus on fun and participation, but the Trifocus team did shine through putting in strong performances.

We look forward to preparing for our next training block and look forward to adding more participants to the team.

Active Kids Provider

I am pleased to advise the the Kids Tri program is now registered as an Active Kids Provider. This means that you can utilise your $100 voucher towards the cost of the Kids Tri. This is brilliant initiative as it is great to see kids being active, having fun and enjoying sport. For info on Active Kids or how to apply for your voucher click here.

Kids Tri Update

The Kids Tri training program is progressing well with participants learning and improving on many new skills. We are all getting much faster at our T1’s and T2’s, improving riding technique and skills (eg dead turns). On the running we are focussed on improving our running form and also fitness.

We have 6 weeks left of the program for term 1. We have room for more. If you want to book now for the last 6 weeks the price is $150 and entry is available now. Next training session is on Wednesday 28 Feb 2018. ENTER HERE
