Over the past few months, the coaching team has been working hard to improve the triathlon Youth/Jr program for the 2020 & 2021 season. The program enhancements we are recommending are to support a strong Triathlon NB youth team at the upcoming Canada Games in 2021 and increase the number of youth participating in triathlon in NB.
We will be sharing all the details of the program at our October clinic. In the meantime, we feel that there’s some important information for you to consider. The overall goals of the TriNB Youth / Jr program are to:
- To develop the quantity and quality of junior and youth triathletes in NB
- To develop the sport of triathlon in NB
The TriNB Youth/Jr program is available to athletes between the ages of 14 and 20 as of December 31st, 2020. Keep in mind that if you are planning on declaring interest to participate at the Canada Summer Games, athletes must be 16-20 as of December 31, 2021 (Year of birth: 2000-2005).
To support our program goals, we will introduce a new fee structure. We will go over all aspects of the cost at the first clinic, but a summary is provided below.
- $100/monthly for 10 months (October 26th-August 2020) which will be a monthly registration on ccnbikes
- Outside of the monthly fee athletes will be required to purchase training equipment such as heart rate monitor, training watch, speed/cadence sensor, triathlon suit, traveling cost, accommodations, race registration and draft legal road bike
