Age Group Coach of The Year Award
The Triathlon Australia Coaching Awards were established in 2013 to recognise and honour Australian triathlon coaches who have demonstrated a commitment and dedication to coaching Australian triathletes, and who have helped Australian triathletes to achieve significant competition success at both the age group and the High Performance level. Competition success incorporates all disciplines and distances of triathlon and multisport events. There are two categories that are awarded on a retrospective basis that consider significant competition success over the previous seasons racing.
