Course Information

Level 1 Triathlon Coach

The level 1 qualification will allow a coach to lead and deliver (pre-planned) sessions or plan basic sessions on their own (reviewed by higher level coach) in a range of club environments (without the need to be directly supervised). You will gain the knowledge to adapt sessions to meet the needs of a variety of participants.

It has been specifically designed to provide a supporting and engaging environment for developing the fundamentals of coaching the sport, to equip you with the necessary skills and resources to start coaching.

Course content includes:

  • Preparing sessions for delivery 
  • Develop key coaching and technical skills 
  • Learners will have access to an online resource (Learning Hub), with the technical components of the sport across swim, cycle, run and transitions.

Course Overview
