Much planning is going on to bring an improved JDP program to members in 2013-2014.
In order to be able to be involved in these activities you need to do 2 things.
You will unable to be part of activities until this is done.
All members of the JDP will receive a shirt and be eligible to participate in activities organised by Triathlon SA at minimal or no cost.
There are 2 stages to the program this year with a high performance squad for those wanting to compete on a national basis and a development squad for junior athletes who wish to improve their skills and abilities.
One of the selection criteria is via time trials. The other may be as the result of performance at events.
We are currently finalising details of a junior camp to be held in conjunction with Victorian and Tasmanian programs to be held at Geelong Grammar in the October school holidays with many national coaches in attendance. We will release details of this as soon as it is finalised.
The first event for athletes will be this weekend.
We are very fortunate that Dan Atkins the National Talent Academy Coach for SA and WA and Wayne Goldsmith National Manger Coaching Development will be in Adelaide this weekend and will be running some sessions.
The schedule will be as follows;
8:30am till 10:30am - Santos Stadium
We will be running a time trial of either 3k or 5k depending on age.
