JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT

   

MEMBERSHIP

Triathlon Queensland's development framework provides high quality development to athletes aged five through to 22. The development program divides the state into ten regions, grouping junior programs in each region.

The grouping of junior programs provides opportunities for upskilling athletes, coaches and environments and creates a collaborative relationship between clubs with leadership, under the guidance of Triathlon Queensland.

Regional information will be available soon.

 

Become a member of Triathlon Australia and you’ll get free access to Queensland’s junior development program including skills clinics with experienced junior coaches and expert presenters.

Triathlon Australia has membership options for juniors from 5 years to 19 years old, from just $36 a season. As a member, you’ll also be able to earn points and represent your club in the Nissan State Series and race at the Queensland Championships.
