This may be of interest to some of the QLs with an interest in Triathlons:

Fusion Triathlon’s 1st Junior Triathlon Camp

Running as a ‘mini’ 3 day camp during the short February school holidays, we will be providing a fantastic opportunity for kids aged 8 – 15 to train in the disciplines of triathlon of swimming, cycling and running but to find out more about the sport, learn about racing, the right nutrition, bike maintenance and how to stretch properly. Delivered by one of Scotland’s most successful Junior Triathlon Clubs, with very experienced professional triathlon coaches, the camp will be run out of Bellahouston Leisure Centre, perhaps the best location in Scotland for Junior training, with a 6 lane 25 metre pool with anti-turbulence ropes, a dedicated cycle activity centre with miles of closed road cycle routes and brilliant run routes. It will also allow you to practice on the course for the Youth Champs which take place in August.

The programme will begin on Sunday 12th February, incorporating the regular Junior session starting at 8am, but will then extend till 2.30pm allowing workshops to be run indoors as well as some fun activities.

Monday 13th February the timings will be 9am till 3.30pm. We will be working on swimming, cycling and running through the morning with workshops and a special activity in the afternoon.

Tuesday 14th February the timings will be the same as Monday. We will again work on all the sports, but will include a competitive ‘mini’ Duathlon and work on some open water practice in the pool.

We request that all juniors can swim 2 lengths front crawl with their head in the water, have a working bike and mandatory helmet. And also come prepared with warm, waterproof kit for outdoors. We will have an hour lunch break and the kids should bring money for the café or a packed lunch. We would be delighted to accept kids for any club or even kids who are interested but never done any triathlon before, as long as they meet the above requirements.

This camp is really open to all abilities, so we hope to see you join us!!

The cost of the camp is £60 for the 3 days

Other details:

1. If parents would like to drop off earlier and pick up slightly later due to work, then please let us know and we will try to accommodate, subject to a small fee.

2. We will provide secure overnight bike storage for Sunday and Monday night for ease and have a permanent base each day within Bellahouston Leisure Centre to store all the other kit.

3. Kids need to bring all their swim, bike and run gear and we suggest a change of clothes to wear indoors while on lunch, workshops, and other activities. i.e. jumper and jeans etc. Warm and waterproof kit is essential.

4. If you can only make the Sunday only, then we would charge £15 for the 1 day. Monday and Tuesday would be £45

5. Cash and Cheque are accepted as confirmation on your attendance, but unfortunately we cannot offer any cancellation refunds. Payment can also be taken on entrycentral (next few days it will be set up) Please contact info@fusiontriathlonclub.co.uk for any further details, or to express interest.
