Junior Training

If your sport-loving child loves to be active, is keen to make friends and have fun, then they’ll love our friendly and supportive club!

The junior section of 4Life Triathlon Club has been a great success since it was first introduced. Our juniors have a great time at their weekly training sessions in East Leake and Keyworth, supported by their fabulous coaches, and have enjoyed huge success in the East Midlands Series. 

One of our most successful 4Life junior members to date is Sophie Coldwell. Sophie has competed in the women’s event at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and achieved several medals in International Triathlon Union (ITU) and European Triathlon Union (ETU) Championships! We’re proud to have helped Sophie on her triathlon journey and continue to watch her progress with pride.

Junior fees

There are two costs associated with joining 4Life:

  1. Our annual junior membership fee – £25 a year
  2. Monthly fee for coached training sessions – £25 a month
Weekly Training

Juniors training is open to those aged 8+ who can swim a minimum of 8 x 25m length front crawl. We train on Tuesday & Thursday evenings:

Tuesday: East Leake Leisure Centre – 6.30pm-8.00pm
1 session with Neil and Derek

Thursday: East Leake Leisure Centre – 6.30pm-8.00pm
2 sessions – intermediate with Jen and advanced swim coaching with Dean.

In the winter months the focus of the sessions is on swim, run and strength & conditioning. Once the nights get warmer and lighter the cycling discipline and transition is brought back into the sessions.

Free trial

We welcome new members to come along and try us out before committing to joining the club. 

If your child is interested, please arrange a trial and ideally have a 200 meter swim time (or any swim time) to hand, so we can fit you into the most appropriate group.

Juniors kit list

If your junior is coming to one of our training session for the first time and is wondering what they need to bring, here is a list of items our coaches would recommend they bring with them:
