CCTRI values all of our members but we have a keen interest in the development of junior triathletes. We run 2 distances for junior races catering from 7 years up to teenagers.
On club race day junior competitors have a race briefing and warm-up with the junior coordinator. They are first off the mark on race day so there is minimal interaction with adult competitors on course. We encourage parents to be actively involved!
Junior Skills Development
A safe and fun race environment is important for juniors to develop skills and knowledge of effective triathlon racing. That is why we offer regular bike skill development days.
Junior CCTRI members learn road safety, hand signalling and decision making in various traffic situations. They then progress to the bicycle skills course where they learn mounts, weaving cones, track stand, slalom, hot dog turn, bunny hop and dismount.
