Man Tri Junior Section is now FULL. We will be operating a waiting list system from now on.

In September we reviewed numbers and employed an additional coach so that we could have 3 groups based on skills. The groups were planned to have 8 to 10 participants so that we could focus on quality and learning. We spent September carefully assessing the athletes to make sure they were put in a group with the correct coach.

We have had a brilliant level of interest, one that our membership system is not designed to accommodate!! Each week since September we have had new members joining and we had 44 runners last night.

We are really keen to keep and raise the standard of Man Tri Juniors and letting numbers get any higher than this will represent a drop in coaching quality per athlete and can also pose a health and safety risk.

So can I please ask that parents explain to any friends who are interested in triathlon that there is a now a waiting list that we will review again in the new year once existing members have renewed their membership.

Also, if parents need to speak to coaches, please can this occur between 6pm and 610pm and can we politely ask that parents do not cross the track to the coaching area.

If your child is already a member of the club and you are not getting the club communications, please join the ManTri Juniors Facebook page. (This is a closed group so we do vet people who apply to join)

Thanks for all your support and for making Man Tri Juniors bigger and better than it has EVER been!!
