Triathlon Scotland Academy Squad Trial Day 2017

09 Sep 2017

Triathlon Scotland Academy Squad Trial Day 2017/18

 

The Triathlon Scotland Academy Squad trial day is designed to provide athletes age 14+ the opportunity to trial for the 2017/18 Academy Squad.  The day also provides athletes with an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the Triathlon Scotland Performance Pathway and BTF Athlete Development Framework. 

For more information on the Academy Squad please visit this link http://www.triathlonscotland.org/performance/national-squads/

Pleas click the link here for the Academy Squad Selection Criteria 2017-18 and please click here for the points calculator.

Due to timing constraints we have set generous minimum standards that athletes must be at in order to participate in the day. These standards are designed to include as many athletes as possible. We have a maximum capacity of 50 athletes for the day. If we are oversubscribed athletes applying for Academy Squad will be given priority, thereafter places will be determined via speed over relevant TT distances.
