Anyone living in these areas who can meet the entry requirements for the North West Academy will be invited to join.  The academy is there to supply athletes with a pathway to the England Talent Squad and subsequently the World Class Programme.

Academy Purpose:

  • Identify talent by monitoring results at local events
  • Direct talent by establishing links with local swim/cycle/run/triathlon clubs
  • Provide support for talent via triathlon club coaches
  • Guide and prepare athletes towards gaining a place on the Triathlon England Talent Squad
  • Develop young athletes in a holistic manner to ensure their continuation within the sport of triathlon
