East Midlands Triathlon Academy is the home of the most talented young triathletes and paratriathletes from the counties of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.
The Academy offers fantastic opportunities and experiences for athletes to grow and develop in their sport and continues to go from strength to strength, both in the calibre of young athletes it attracts and in the quality of coaching support those talented athletes receive throughout the year.
The Academy aims to create an environment which allows athletes to explore and enhance their learning by giving them opportunities to make decisions when it really matters. This is supported by the coaches through guided challenge and discovery allowing athletes to become more independent in their learning. East Midlands Academy expects athletes to understand the Athlete Development Framework (ADF) and its importance it plays on their triathlon journey. Throughout the year the Academy runs a rich and varied programme that exposes athletes to a wide range of opportunities and experiences, with the aim of developing young athletes into well rounded individuals.

Invitation to Sponsors
The East Midlands Region continues to be a hot bed for developing talented young triathletes and your support would be extremely valued.
East Midlands Academy is currently funded and supported by:
- Sport England (via Triathlon England)
Providing the best possible support to our talented young triathletes is our goal, but as ever, one of the limiting factors is available funds, as we still rely heavily on parental contributions to ensure we continue to provide the highest quality experiences.
If you or your company are able to contribute funding, services or equipment, and would like to be part of a dynamic, engaging and fast growing support, as well as assisting in the development of some of the nation’s top young talent, please get in contact with us.
