Welsh Triathlon Academy Programme

The Welsh Triathlon Academy Programme (WTAP) is delivered as one programme that caters for athletes all around Wales. The programme is delivered across two squads: Transition (15-19 years old) and Development (17-19 years old).

The key points of the WTAP are:  

  • All Academy athletes will have some form of contact and/or activity on a monthly basis as a mixture of camps, training days and coach phone calls.
  • Academy years run October to September. There are two selection points per year to allow more opportunity for an athlete to be selected.
  • During the winter, activities have a more Training as Play focus. In Spring that focus turns to race prep and during the summer it is on racing in the British Youth & Junior Super Series
  • Where possible, we run joint camps with some of the English Academies throughout the year where greater athlete numbers contribute to a more positive and challenging athlete experience.
  • There are two selection points per year, one in September and the other in February. Athletes apply via an online entry form and enter times across swim, bike (dustbin test) and run performances. All athletes, whether new or returning, are required to go through the process. Selection to either squad in September gives an athlete a year as part of the Academy however those selected in February will need to reapply in the following September.

Wales offers fantastic locations to train and so we make use of a number of different facilities and venues around the country. Due to our partnership with Sport Wales, we often use their facilities in Cardiff and their activity Centre, Plas Menai, in North Wales, as a base for our camps.
