The three-tiered Triathlon NSW / Triathlon ACT Pathway Programs have commenced with online inductions and education sessions. The inductions were facilitated by Robyn Low-Hart Coach Education and Pathway Lead TNSW/TACT with the assistance of Brendan Sexton, Triathlon Australia National Talent Development Coach. The Pathway Programs includes holistic education, with TNSW athletes having already attended a Mobility Education Session and Media Training online.
Some of the best consultants in these areas were utilised to provide education in engaging formats online. The racing focus of the Pathway will be the Billigence Pathway Championship Series (BPCS), eight races in both NSW and ACT, provided by local clubs and race directors. The BPCS provides athletes with high level competition usually found at the National Level, accessed more locally. Eligible athletes will also have racing opportunities at the National Level in various states of Australia. Racing is the best form of training, where athletes can learn and develop. These racing opportunities are an important part in the development of pathway athletes.
Robyn Low-Hart says, "The athletes in the Pathways Programs will develop tactical, technical, physiological and psychological skills that enhance their development in the pathway - skills is one of the focal points of the program. The programs provide education that will not only assist the athletes in the sport but assist with life in general. The Billigence Pathway Championship Series (BPCS) is about to commence with Round One in Maroubra with draft legal racing provided by the BRAT's club, for NSW and ACT's best athletes. These draft legal racing opportunities that the BCPS provide are an important part of developing athletes, exposing athletes to the demands of National Level Racing in a more accessible and cost-effective location. I am excited for racing to resume, seeing the athletes face to face and being a part of their triathlon journey".
