Gunnedah Cycling & Triathlon Club are pleased to announce their affiliation with the new kids triathlon program introduced by Triathlon Australia called TRYSTARS. A number of our adult members have completed the training course and are now accredited Trystars Program coaches.
TRYstars is Triathlon Australia’s national “first touch” junior participation program for 7-12 yr olds that encourages kids to get involved in Triathlon all around Australia.
TRYstars is based on action packed swim, ride and run games delivered during up to 8 x 1 hour sessions and ensures kids of all skill levels and abilities between the ages of 7 and 12, achieve success.
TRYstars is available exclusively through accredited Triathlon Australia “TRYstars” Clubs and is delivered by Triathlon Australia Accredited TRYstars Coaches.
TRYstars incorporates Mini-Stars (7-9yr olds) and Super-Stars (10-12yr olds) programs.
TRYstars participants need to be able to swim 50 metres and ride unaided without the use of training wheels. They also need to have a bike (must be road worthy), helmet and pair of shoes.
The Trystars program will run twice a year within the GCTC.
