A new Junior Triathlon Club is born. Who are Turbokids?
Turbokids is the newest Junior Triathlon Club in Surrey launched officially in May 2014. We are the only Junior only Triathlon Club in the South of England. We are a community club (not for profit), British Triathlon affiliated.
Our aim is to promote triathlon primarily in the 8-12 age group (although we have a few younger and older athletes), providing training, advice and encouragement to anyone interested in this wonderful sport. Our training sessions are currently based around Oxshott Common, West End (running and biking) and Hurst Pool (East Molesey) for our weekly swimming session. Our young members are not required to have a prior experience in Triathlon. They need to start somewhere and we believe we are a good place to start.
The aims and objectives of the club are:
- To promote the sport of triathlon in the junior community and promote the values associated with the sport.
- To offer coaching and competitive opportunities in Swimming, Cycling, Running, Triathlon and Duathlon for junior members. The club will predominantly focus on the 8 to 12 group initially.
- To ensure a duty of care to all members of the club.
- To ensure that all present and future members receive fair and equal treatment.
Where/ When do we train?
We currently offer weekly training sessions based around Esher West End (running and biking) and Hurst Pool in East Molesey (swimming).
The vast majority of our young athletes have not competed in triathlon before. We are therefore planning some single event races e.g. some short local running races building up for duathlons, aquathlons and triathlons during the spring and summer months.
Saturdays 9:30 a.m: Running from Oxshott Medical Centre Car Park Post code KT22 0QJ
Sundays 11 a.m.: Swimming at Hurst Pool (Dunstall Way, East Molesey, KT8 1PD)
Additional Biking Sessions near West End Recreation Ground
