Below are the dates for the London Academy trials for the 2018 season applications. Entries for this are now open and the deadline for application in Monday 4th September
This is a 3-stage process:
1. Online Application and review (see link below)
2. Swimming and Running Time Trials
3. Academy Selection Day
The Triathlon England London Regional Academy Swimming and Running Trials will take place on Sunday 10th September at St Mary's University Twickenham TW1 4SX for the 2018 Squad. If you are successful at these trials you will be invited to attend the 3rd stage of the process on Sunday 29th October. Shortly after this invitations to join the Academy as either a full member or affiliate member will be sent out.
Applications are invited from London based athletes born during 2005 or before who are likely to achieve 300 combined points or above. This will provide an opportunity for new or younger athletes to experience the trials and get used to the process.
Only outstanding athletes achieving 320 points at the trials over the age of 14 will be offered an affiliate or 340 points or above full academy place and this will be subject to individual confirmation.
Current academy athletes who have not shown commitment to triathlon during the 2017 season will only be offered affiliate place during the 2018 season.
Online applications can be made HERE - the trials will be open to anyone who can achieve the required standards. You will be informed by email if your application to trial is successful as soon as the applications have been reviewed. If you are offered a place in the Academy or Affiliate squad you will be required to become a member of Triathlon England if you aren't already.
You should read the Regional Academy Guide very carefully; it will help when deciding whether or not to apply.
The Regional Academy Points Calculator times quoted are based on those of programme triathlete's single discipline performances. Selection to the Academy will be primarily based on points achieved at the trials supported by information provided in the application process and race results.
The distances you will trial under will be based on your age on the 1st of September 2017
- 16 – 18 400m swim (short course) & 3km run (track)
- 13 – 15 200m swim (short course) & 1500m run (track)
