Triathletes look for young recruits

May 29 2018

A group of young tri-athletes are looking for new members to swell their ranks.

Yate Tristars, who train at Yate Outdoor Sports Centre are encouraging young people between the ages of 7 and 18 years to join them for a Monday night training session.

The club, who boast two level 2 coaches and three level 1 coaches, all qualified with the British Triathlon Federation.  It says the club offers fun, a chance to build fitness and endurance as well as make new friends. 

Several club members have competed recently in the Oldbury White Horse Triathlon, being involved in both the team relay category for the Sprint Triathlon and the Aqua Bike competition involving swimming and cycling only. Past members have been chosen to participate in the England under 20 development squad.. 

The Tristars train at YOSC between 6pm and 7pm on Monday nights and run regularly and offer two swim coaching sessions to members each month.
