Juniors Section

The Harrogate Tri Club junior section was established in 2017 and provides a fun and interactive training environment for our kids to get to know the sport and themselves better.

Our team of dedicated coaches are keen advocates of the British Triathlon Skills School approach, and focus on developing our juniors as young triathletes who are able to listen, question, reflect, challenge, make mistakes but most important have a great experience through triathlon.

We offer structured coaching throughout the course of the year and provide opportunities to learn and practice in a safe and well supported environment. Our sessions include pool swimming, functional strength and movement, open water swimming, biking, running, transitions and race preparation.

Our junior section caters for children aged 8 to 14yrs. Juniors must be able to swim 200m front-crawl.
