What is it?
TRI2gether is a program designed to get students more active. Delivered over 6-weeks, TRI2gether consists of two weekly sessions (swim and bike/run), preparing the girls to complete their first mini-triathlon. Delivered by PE teachers, the programs features easy to follow session plans that guide you through each week, and resources for students to learn more about swim, bike and run.
TRI2gether offers students:
- Something different to traditional sport options
- A sporting challenge without direct competition against others
- An opportunity to share the experience with friends and peers
"We would definitely participate again. It's been great to have a group of girls train together and many of whom would not normally get involved in a program like this." - Adam Dearness, PE teacher at Waverley Christian College

FRequently asked questions (FAQ)
What is TRI2gether?
TRI2gether is a school-based program that gives secondary school students aged 13 to 17 years the opportunity to get active by participating in swim, bike, run and triathlon. The 6-week program targets students that are less active and aims to create an accessible, fun and socially-inclusive environment in the spirit of 'finish line, not finish time'. Delivered by accredited triathlon coaches appointed as “TRI2gether Ambassadors”, the 12-session program consists of one swim session and one bike/run session per week held in the relative safety of pools, on spin bikes and in school grounds or at local leisure facilities with the end goal of students completing a mini 'fun' triathlon as an individual or in a team (2 or 3 students). Refer to programs calendar for starting dates here.
What if our school doesn’t have a pool or sufficient spin bikes?
Your Triathlon Victoria (TV) Ambassador will discuss your available facilities and how to best configure the program. As well as adapting the program to suit your available equipment and facilities, TRI2gether also provides flexibility to structure around any multisport variation of duathlon, aquathlon or triathlon event. Click here to view the TRI2gether equipment checklist
What events are there for schools to enter?
TRI2gether finishes with a mini triathlon event in your local area or at your school. The team at TV will assist you with selecting an event from the triathlon event calendar or alternatively help you 'build' your own TRI2gether event that can then be held at schools or local leisure facilities. Schools can partner with neighbouring schools to hold combined ‘local’ inter-school events.
How much will the TRIstopme program cost the school to run?
There is no cost to schools for the TRI2gether program, however, schools/participants are required to pay the event entry fee (if the school doesn't organise its own race event) which is typically $60.00 per entrant. Whilst the program is well resourced with technical documents and administrative support, TV are unable to assist with the logistical costs of running the program e.g. pool and transport hire.
How many students do I need to run a TRIstopme program?
Programs vary according to different schools and the facilities they have available, but generally programs work best with or around 20 participants. Students taking part in TRI2gether may race solo or as part of a team (2 or 3 people). Teams are a great introduction to triathlon and the team members participate in a relay format.
What program documentation is provided by Triathlon Victoria and required of schools?Schools receive a comprehensive training program and support resource that includes:
- 12 session plans (6-weeks) of swim and spin bike/run content.
- A suite of supporting documents (e.g. Bike Safety Check, Correct Bike Helmet Fitting, Event Day Checklist etc.). These support beginner triathletes to feel confident on race day.
Note: Principal Teacher permission is required to run the TRI2gether program as anonymous participation data is collected by La Trobe University. This involves completion of pre-and-post-program surveys by all students, data from which is used to analyse changing attitudes to physical activity amongst participants.
