The 2021 Canada Summers Games in Niagara are only 21 months away. Triathlon NL is kicking off identifying and developing a provincial team to compete in those games. We have been tracking young athletes and their results for the last two years. It’s now time to identify who is interested in triathlon and begin working to develop their capabilities.
The first step is to ask interested athletes to complete an Athlete Information form and submit it to our provincial coaches Stephanie Nevin and Will Duggan. Please see the links below for the communication from our coaches and the form to be completed. If you are interested, please complete and return this form by December 7th.
Triathlon is also a sport at this year’s NL Summer Games in August. Triathlon NL will be recruiting athletes to represent their regions and compete in Bay Roberts. There is also an opportunity and a need for parents to participate in the Games as coaches or managers of regional teams. Please watch for more information!
We’re looking forward to your participation in triathlon over the next two years.
For the first time Triathlon will be part of the NL Summer Games taking place this August 2020 in Bay Roberts!
Junior Boys and Girls will compete in the Individual Sprint and Mixed Relay competitions representing the regions of the Province. The Sprint will take place in a new course in Clarke’s Beach and the Relay will take place at Goose Pond Eco-Park in Bay Roberts. Each regional team will consist of 3 boys and 3 girls (ages 15-18 as of December 21, 2020), a coach, and a manager.
Triathlon NL needs volunteers to serve as regional representatives, coaches, and managers for each of the eight regions – St. John’s North, Mount Pearl South, Avalon, Host, Eastern, Central, Western, Labrador.
- Regional representatives are responsible for making sure a team comes together for their region, with a coach and manager.
- Coaches will be responsible for training programs for the athletes. Appropriate courses and training plan support will be provided to coaches as part of this effort.
- Managers will assist the coach in executing the training plan and team operations.
Triathletes in each region are ideal candidates for these roles, or the parents/relatives of athletes involved. Please consider putting something back into the development of the sport and offer yourself for one of these roles.
