Williamstown High School Accelerated Sports Program

ETPA in collaboration with Williamstown High School manage the Accelerated Sports Program to offer Triathlon as an elective subject.

The program is coached by qualified, industry leading coaches on school grounds and surrounding facilities. Williamstown High School is lucky to be so close to some great facilities for Triathlon training including the beach and the shared footpath.

 

ETPA joint initiative with Warrnambool triathlon club

ETPA joined forces with Warrnambool triathlon club to launch a junior development program with a clear pathway from childhood through to mid teens and beyond. ETPA coach and junior program manager Jamie Edwards writes the program that is then delivered by a team of Warrnambool triathlon club coaches headed by club president Dean Picken. The goal is to provide opportunities for local juniors to become more involved in the sport.

Program Description and Philosophy

Following on from ETPA’s philosophy of educating through activity, the junior development program aims to provide an opportunity for young athletes to try Triathlon in a fun, safe environment. Aimed at 7 to 15 year olds our program will introduce young and aspiring athletes to various aspects of the sport whilst providing opportunities to train and race.

Participants are introduced to Swimming, Cycling, Running, Transition and Race Day activities with an emphasis on enjoyment and education. Anyone can attend, with the minimum fitness requirement being the ability to swim 50m freestyle comfortably.

Throughout the program we try to work with each athlete to improve both technique and fitness, which will ultimately allow participants to compete in an ETPA fun race or a main stream junior Triathlon event.

The ETPA Fun Tri Challenge is run once a year with an emphasis on fun, participation and learning.

Junior Triathletes

 

Development Squad

The Development Squad is aimed at 12-15 year olds who are looking to take the next step in their training. Working with Junior Coach, Jamie Edwards, athletes will be exposed to swimming, and running in a squad environment with the major emphasis still being on education. This program follows on from ETPAs current JDP which runs at Elite Swimming’s performance centre in Pascoe Vale, and will act as a stepping stone into full service coaching programs in the future.

Full service junior coaching available. Please see products and services page for more info.
