Coaching course reminder

Triathlon Tasmania are conducting a Development Level coaching course in Launceston on August 29th and 30th.

There are a few places left and CCTM would like to see at least a couple of members at this course. The course is theoretically and practically based, with swimming, cycling, running, and transition sessions containing substantial practical time (therefore all triathlon gear/equipment needed – no wetsuit)

The focus of the course is: to develop coaches working with triathletes / para-triathletes who are preparing to compete in triathlon races.
  • The coach in action 
  • The coaching process 
  •  Swimming for triathlon 
  • Cycling for triathlon 
  • Running for triathlon 
  • Transitions for triathlon 
  • Fitness, conditioning, and athlete preparation for triathlon 
  • The junior triathlete – long term development 
  • Planning and programming for triathlon 
  • The mature triathlete 
In terms of assessment there are four components:
  1. Attend the course for the its complete duration (all sessions) 
  2. Complete the course workbook 
  3. Observe and work with a mentor coach for a total of 24 hours; then conduct a coaching session that is observed by an assessor 
  4. Design a three month training program for a triathlete at any level
The cost is $300 but if you complete the course and are prepared to offer support to the club by way of organised coaching sessions for members then we will consider refunding your TA membership in the following season.

If you are interested please contact Tracy Doherty ASAP -
