Our Triathlon Academy is growing from strength to strength. With over 100 seasoned triathletes and new members joining us weekly, we are constantly looking for ways to accommodate and advance our sessions and offerings. We have seen some remarkable improvements and results with our current athletes, so to ensure continued progression we will be implementing a “Performance Pathway” within the Academy.

Recently, we added a Mini triathlon session (Friday) an Elite level run session (Tuesday), and had great success with “filtering” in some Mini’s to our “Development” Triathlon Academy on Weds.

It is imperative that we continue to provide the right level of training to motivate our athletes so that they continue to enjoy, improve and discover the triathlon lifestyle. There are now 5 distinct triathlon groups under the umbrella of Burnham-on-Sea Swim & Sports Academy, which are outlined below:

Mini Triathletes train once a week with payments due at the start of each term. The cost equates to £7.75 per week, and is run in line with the swim Academy term. (Sessions may still run during the holidays for minis on a “pay as you go basis of £7.75 per session”).

Mini Potential Triathletes train twice a week with payments due at the start of each term. The cost equates to £7.75 per week and is run in line with the swim Academy term. (Sessions will still run during the holidays for mini potentials on a “pay as you go basis of £7.75 per week”).

The Academy Triathlon Team (Development/Performance/Elite) can train up to 3 sessions a week (including one Swim Academy session). Payment is by Standing Order £34.50 a month.

A complimentary Swim Academy lesson is included for all Development, Performance & Elite Triathletes when Swim Academy is in session (term-time only). This is bookable at reception and dependent on your level of swimming only. During Swim Academy breaks, NO swimming lessons will take place.

Please note there are NO “Make-up” lessons for Triathletes in Development & Performance Squad. Should you miss a lesson, no re-schedules are permitted.

Stage 7 + Swimmers: Athletes from all teams who are at a level of swimming at Stage 7 + may attend the Sunday morning (8:30 – 9:30 am) Triathlon Academy Swim Workout with Coach Tracey. This is a pay as you go session operating year round costing £4.50 per athlete. (Athletes at Stage 7 + may substitute Swim Academy for this year round workout).

TEAM KIT: “Hoodies” – Once a triathlete has “survived” 8 weeks with us in the Development/Performance or Elite Team, a Tri Academy hoody will be awarded at no charge. For athletes and family members that would like additional hoodies these can be purchased at cost. This is currently £19.99. Tri Suits have been heavily subsidized by the Academy and are provided at a discounted rate them to Mini members through Elite at £49.99 per suit.

We will be constantly assessing the children’s ability to ensure they are in the correct ability group and that they get the appropriate level of training. With this in mind, you have been selected to the following team:
