Junior triathlon squad

Welcome to the Dan McTainsh junior triathlon squad.  We are a Triathlon Australia affiliated squad coached by myself.  I started my coaching career back in 2009, when I obtained my level 1 Triathlon coaching accreditation and I’m now a Performance level, Triathlon Australia coach.  I’ve personally coached a number of athletes from short course triathlon all the way up to having multiple Ironman finishers but my real passion is for junior coaching!  I'm a big believer in having fun while developing the necessary skills to allow juniors to not only enjoy their training and racing but to also equip them with the skills and abilities needed to be competitive.

As of October 2020 I am running a few weekly sessions plus a number of training camps during the school holidays. The current weekly schedule is screenshotted below.  If you're interested in trying us out feel free to send me an email and I'll reply quickly and am happy for your son/daughter to try out their first session for FREE.


Swim squad
At the moment this session is only suitable for juniors who can hold 2min/100m and are able to complete 1500m of swimming in a single session.

Road Ride
This session is conducted in a low traffic environment around the Eaton's Hill/Brendale area and is only suitable for juniors who demonstrate competence riding with cleats.  This is assessed at our weekly bike skills sessions.
*current as of October 2020


Session fees are $12.50 (+gst) per session which are invoiced monthly or for the term.
