There is plenty happening over the next month for our athletes across all levels of the Pathway. Please read on for an update from our Pathway Manager, Mick Delamotte.
NSW ALL SCHOOLS TRIATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS
The 2020 NSW All Schools Triathlon Championships will take place on the 26 - 27th February, 2020, at the Sydney International Regatta Centre, Penrith.
This race will be the selection race for the NSW All Schools Team to contest the National Championships at Hervey Bay, Queensland, 22nd-25th March 2020.
The event attracts hundreds of high school aged athletes from around the state, many trying the sport for the first time, whilst others use the event as a stepping stone towards national level racing. We wish all our Pathway athletes the best for this race.
ITU YOUTH JUNIOR AUSTRALIAN SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIPS & MIXED TEAM RELAY CHAMPIONSHIPS
Devonport is once again the host of the 2020 Australian Youth & Junior Triathlon Championships, with our U23 Development athletes competing in the Oceania Sprint Distance Championships & many backing up the next day to compete in the Mixed Team Relay championships over a busy weekend of racing.
We wish our NSW Representatives all the best for the weekend's racing.
TALENT ID & RACE PREP CAMP
This will be held at the Sydney Academy of Sport in Narrabeen kicks off from Saturday 7th to Sunday 8th March 2020. The Camp objectives will be focused on race specific skills in swim, bike & run tailored for the various ages and experience levels; and will also be used as a race prep camp for those who have qualified for the National All Schools Triathlon in Hervey Bay in March.
ITU YOUTH & JUNIOR STATE AQUATHON CHAMPIONSHIPS
The Richie Walker Aquathon - postponed from the original date in February - is now to be held on the 21st March 2020. It will, for the first time, host a specific ITU Youth A, Youth B & ITU Junior State Aquathlon Championships.

COACH & PARENT RESOURCES
We are delighted to make the first of two announcements in our bid to increase parent's engagement and make coach education resources accessible to our Pathway community. We have partnered with Working With Parents in Sport to deliver customised resources for parents & coaches. The online medium will allow you to access information in your own time at your own pace and continued updates will provide benefits to all long term. More information will be available soon, but in the meantime you can browse the website here.
