Western Suburbs Triathlon Club - Junior Events

Over the last couple of years we have been working on a number of initiatives to provide opportunities for juniors to race.

JUNIORS (7-13)

We hold two kids races (ages 7 to around 12-13 years old), which are just a fun introduction to the sport. A duathlon in Sep/Oct and a triathlon on Australia Day. Both these events are held on closed roads. Entry Fee is usually $20 online and $25 on the day. Specific details are released prior to each event.

Next kid’s race will be held on Sunday, 24th September 2017.

Details of all WSTC events can be found at the link below.

JUNIORS (12-17)

Our regular winter and summer series of races (duathlon & triathlon) provide a stepping-stone for juniors (12+) who want to try some regular racing beyond our kids’ races above.

The DASH distance has a minimum age of 12.

The ENTICER distance has a minimum age of 13.

The SPRINT distance has a minimum age of 16.

Distance and course descriptions are available at the link below.

Triathlon Australia set the maximum distances permissible within junior age categories so our races work within these requirements. We are not permitted to operate outside these requirements.

We endeavor to make kids as comfortable as possible with their triathlon experience. We have a separate start for the Dash, and a separate briefing, if required, as well as a separate area in transition for beginners.

Entry fees (members and non-members) for junior competitors across all three of the above race distances are reduced in an effort to make it more affordable for families and to encourage greater participation by juniors.

Our annual junior club membership fee is $22 plus compulsory Triathlon Victoria / Triathlon Australian membership which provides insurance cover amongst other advantages. Details can be found at the link below.

Junior members race for $10 in the dash distance (12 years and over) or $15 in the enticer (13 and over) or sprint (16 -17 yrs).

Junior non-members pay a maximum of $25 for the dash or $35 for the sprint or enticer, the fee payable is reduced if the competitor is also a Triathlon Victorian member. This compares to around $55 for an adult.

If you have any queries or concerns about juniors participating in our events please don’t hesitate to contact us.
