Course Information

To provide young people (aged 14-17) with the opportunity to gain the skills and confidence to lead and assist in the delivery of triathlon sessions and grow participation in their local club, school, or community group.

Young Activators will develop the skills to:

  • Assist a coach with the set up and running of club activities.
  • Lead sessions under the supervision of a coach or PE teacher. This might involve helping to organise an activity within a session i.e a transition skills challenge, leading the warm-up/warm down, splitting athletes into groups in preparation for the session.
  • Assist in wider club or school triathlon activities such as volunteering or helping to organise GO TRI events or other competitions.

This is NOT a coaching qualification. However, this award can provide useful insight into the role of a coach, and might be the first step towards a formal coaching qualification in the future. The course gives Young Activators the skills and experience to improve the enjoyment and quality of club and school triathlon sessions, which will also help to further grow the sport.

The Young Person Activator is now being delivered online but we aim to keep the majority of the content that is delivered face-to-face. The course will focus on developing the skills to organise and lead sessions within a supported environment.

There is no formal assessment or exam.

Pre-Course Requisites:

  • Must be a British Triathlon member
