The dates for the East Region Academy Trials are Sunday 10th and Saturday 23rd September 2017.
The Regional Academies are for Youth (15-16) and Junior (17-19) athletes and are the first stage of the British Triathlon World Class Performance Pathway. They are exclusively focussed on Olympic format triathlon.
Both of the trial days for the East Region Academy will be held at New Hall School, Chelmsford, Essex with the afternoons comprising a briefing, swim trial and run trial.
Selection for the Regional Academy is by application with the criteria including triathlon experience, training history, home training environment and trials performances.
Applications should be made via the central British Triathlon system
A consideration for those applying is the amount of travelling time and expense that being in the Academy entails. Attedance to the regular centrally held regional sessions is required along with attendance to the British Triathlon Super Series races.
