Value to the Community
Triathlon South Australia embraces the values of Respect, Health, Enjoyment, Belonging and Achievement. Our team values the spirit of inclusion and regularly attend community events such as the very popular school based Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon, where 1150 children between 7 and 12 participated in their first triathlon.
Why the funds are needed
these funds would be used to purchase much needed equipment, specifically a bike fitness tester, to establish exact performance benchmarks to further educate our coaching staff as to the current performance levels of our squad members and how it relates to their development through childhood / adolescence. With the use of this performance assessment tool, we can measure in a quantifiable way, the exact training needs to balance performance with fatigue, injury prevention and in line with their growing bodies. Additionally, exact training loads / power curves can be established to balance these sporting training needs with their other important obligations such as schooling (i.e reduced over-training, reduced fatigue, better school results).
