South East Region Academy

Trials information for 2017/18

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 South East Regional Academy Swimming and Running Trials will take place on Sunday 24th September at Brighton University Eastbourne Campus 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 14th October  at Bedes School The Dicker East Sussex.

Shortly after this invitations to join the Academy as either a full member or affiliate member will be sent out.

Applications are invited from South East based athletes born during 2004 or before who are likely to achieve 320 combined points or above.  This will provide an opportunity for talented younger athletes to experience the trials and get used to the process.  Only outstanding athletes achieving 340 points or above at the trials under the the age of 14 will be offered an affiliate place and this will be subject to individual confirmation.    There will be a limited number of trial places offered to younger athletes.

Online applications can be found HERE - our applications will close on the 14th September. 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 is located at the bottom of the Talent Identification page and times calculated 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  this is likely to be a combined minimum of 320 points for affiliates and 340 points for Academy Members. Athletes aged 16 and upwards on the day will trial over 400m swim and 3000m run.  Talented athletes may be invited to join Academy sessions throughout the year as guests if the session would be benefical to them.

These tables demonstrate times needed to score a balanced swim / run 340 points. This can also be achieved by scoring higher in one discipline, as long as both score a minimum of 160 points.
