Windrush Juniors was founded in 2014. Our emphasis is on participation and enjoyment but we aim to support each junior athlete at whatever stage of triathlon they are at.
About Windrush Juniors
We have over 50 junior members who participate in training sessions and various triathlon competitions. We are a family friendly club and encourage parents and siblings to get involved where possible.
What ages do you cater for?
We coach 8–15 year olds in mixed gender and ability sessions.
Where and when you train?
The current Juniors training schedule is as follows:

No run sessions during the summer schedule but we encourage all our Juniors to take part in Parkrun or Junior Parkrun events
Do you need to have prior triathlon experience?
Absolutely not! Windrush's mission is to introduce everyone regardless of experience to the sport of triathlon. If you do have experience let the coach know via the sign up form.
