Billigence Talent ID Clinics: The first door of the triathlon pathway

 

BILLIGENCE TALENT ID CLINICS: THE FIRST DOOR OF THE TRIATHLON PATHWAY

TID 2

We all remember the moment in time where we made the decision to dip our toe in the world of multisport. It can be confronting; perhaps scary. But what often comes to mind for many of us is the environment that made it seem far less daunting and, to be honest, a load of fun!

 Over the last couple of months we have held a number of Talent ID Clinics, made possible thanks to Billigence, who in recent years have thrown an enormous amount of support behind our development program and pathways, not only through these clinics, but also the NSW/ACT Pathway Series

The Talent ID Clinics are designed to be the first step in the triathlon junior pathway for those aged between 12 and 18. Triathlon NSW/ACT Coach Education and Pathway Lead, Robyn Low-Hart, tells us about the purpose of these clinics.

“The purpose of the clinics is to expose new athletes to the sport of triathlon, with a focus on skill development and to introduce athletes to the Triathlon NSW Pathway.

“We ran four clinics across NSW in areas that are supported by our Regional Academy of Sport triathlon programs or the ROSTA program. Athletes and parents were briefed on our pathway, which helped them gain an understanding of the program’s philosophy and what the Billigence Pathway Series is about.

“The clinic structure was similar across all the locations and concluded with a mini aquathon as a taste of multisport competition, where participants applied the skills they learnt in the clinic.

“The clinics provided a fun learning environment for 65 new athletes in NSW with an interest in triathlon and the pathways programs. It will be great to see some of these new athletes apply to our Regional Academy or ROSTA squads when they open on 17th July!”

The most recent clinic completed just a couple of weeks ago at Barker College in Sydney’s North, with other clinics hosted this year in Sutherland, Newcastle and the Central Coast. Expanding the geographical scope of these clinics has proven to further reduce the barriers to getting involved and introduce athletes to local coaches and local Regional Academy of Sport programs.

Applications for the Regional Academy of Sport Triathlon Programs & Rest of State Talent Academy (ROSTA) open on Monday 17th July.
