Exploring Inclusion

Jamie Hooper

6:30pm - 9:00pm

This workshop will be led by Inclusive Cultures with support from British Triathlon, and will help attendees to kick-start their thinking around equality, diversity and inclusion ahead of the sport returning fully. 

We will hear an update on the latest strategic thinking in this area, including from Sport England and British Triathlon, and we will start to explore modern approaches to providing a truly inclusive participation experience for everyone, no matter how they may want to get involved.

We will start the conversation around what responsibilities a club has to its local community in a post-coronavirus world, and what changes in purpose, structure, delivery, and outreach may be needed to best support local people to get involved.



Child Centred Reboot

Emma Springham, Kate Offord & Dr Liz Scott

6:30pm - 7:30pm

The session will be to work through a reflection on what has happened over the last 12 months – mental health, fears, worries & barriers from both a coach and child perspective.  We will then look at how we can reboot again as a club and what we need to think about moving forward, from that look at the practicalities behind what that would look like – taking a session and making sure we are focusing on what the children’s needs are in many ways and levels using the 4E’s and steps process. 



Developing Young Triathletes
