Man Tri Juniors welcomes children aged between 7 and 14. We are a very friendly club and our emphasis is on empowering the children to have confidence and fun whilst training and racing!

We train up to 3 times per week at the following times:

  • Swim: Saturday 930-1030am at Moss Side Leisure Centre
  • Bike: Ad hoc Saturdays 11:30-12:30 at Longford Park by the tennis courts (see the Junior Members’ Facebook Group for details)
  • Run: Wednesday 18:15-19:15 at Longford Park Running Track

 

The swim sessions assume that children are able to complete the following:

  • 50m continuous front crawl face in the water , recognisable breathing pattern
  • 25m continuous backstroke with sink and push off the wall on their back
  • 25m continuous recognisable breast stroke
  • 25m continuous recognisable butterfly
  • Perform a sitting or standing dive
  • Collect an object from the bottom of the pool.
  • Perform a forward somersault
  • Exit the water without using the steps

Children should be working towards Swim England Learn to Swim Framework stage 6 or 7 and be able to meet the above criteria.
