Performance Assessment Weekend

Performance Assessment Weekend takes place as the first event on the British Triathlon Youth and Junior Super Series.

All athletes with aspirations to race on the British Youth and Junior Super Series are required to attend the PA's, with the results from the weekend setting the order of entry for the inital races. The assessments include a swim time-trial on the Saturday followed by a combined, timed bike-run on the Sunday.

We will be running a number of Bike IRD's across the first two weekends in March. Attendance at one of these IRD's will be mandatory for all Youth and Junior athletes who will be attending the PA's. More information about these IRD's can be found below. 

This year, some senior athletes will also need to attend the Performance Assessments in order to complete for starts in Tier 1 races. Please note, attendance at a Bike IRD in March may also be required for some senior athletes prior to the PA's. Information about which senior athletes will need to attend the PA's and IRD's is available in the Senior Super Series Selection Policy and Senior Super Series Explained document.

Athlete Development Framework

At the 2017 Performance Assesment weekend we released information on the new Athlete Development Framework. We would advise any athletes and parents who are new to Youth and Junior racing should take some time to familiarise themselves with the Framework as this will work to support their continued development

You can find out more about the Athlete Development Framework by downloading the booklet or exploring the links below.
