Activator Award for Young People (14-17 years of age)

Are you interested in gaining skills and confidence to lead and assist in the delivery of your club’s training sessions?

If so, British Triathlon’s Activator Award for Young People could be right for you – a course is planned for Saturday 24th March 2018, venue to be confirmed, and you need to be a member of British Triathlon to take part.

Young Activators will develop the skills to:

  • Assist a coach with the set up and running of club activities.
  • Lead sessions under the supervision of a coach or PE teacher. This might involve helping to organise an activity within a session i.e a transition skills challenge, leading the warm-up/warm down, splitting athletes into groups in preparation for the session.
  • Assist in wider club or school triathlon activities such as volunteering or helping to organise GO TRI events or other competitions.

For further information see the BTF website.  If you are interested in attending the course on the 24th March, please email the club at sytriathlon@yahoo.com with your BTF number to register your interest.
