We are very pleased to confirm that Club Member, John Thomas, will pick up the reigns as Internal Head Coach to help us through 2019. We are sure that all members who have attended the sessions will agree that John has given his all to the club and without his continued drive and commitment, our first year would not have been such a success. Onwards and upwards 🤟

John will be supported by qualified coaches Josh Chapman, Richard Jones, Tristian Manning, Pauline Duxberry and Jason Murphy.

Session delivery will be supported by our qualified Activators - Alun Rees, Craig Flannery, John Jones and Mark Thomas.

Arrangements for the future Junior Section are awaiting confirmation.
Additionally, we are very pleased that Oliver Simon will continue to help us through 2019 ...
Olly is a British Triathlon Level 2 certified coach and Semi-Professional Triathlete. He will brought with him a wealth of experience and credit to the club Summer Coaching Programme for 2018. For 2019, we will continue to visit local courses under Olly's guidance. Schedules will be announced in the Spring.

Amman Valley Sprint Triathlon Programme 2019:

This year, we have scheduled a 2019 Coaching Programme, specifically aimed at our local Sprint Triathlon on April 14th.
Thanks to Noelwyn at Healthy Life Activities for his support of the programme. We will set up actual transition racking and explain the process as best we can. For newcomers, we hope this will ease some of the anxiety of going into your first triathlon.

ATAC Club Members will be provided with access to the group sessions and plan details through our online club Calendar and Smartphone App where they will 'Signup' to the session. There is an overview of the 10 week programme below which starts on Feb 4th. Special transition sessions where we will employ additional coaching.

The plan is a guide and incorporates the usual ATAC Club sessions. Non-club organised sessions will be detailed on the calendar but not delivered through the club. Sessions may change closer to the dates and this will be communicated through the Club Calendar and WhatsApp group. This is not personal coaching but members are welcome to ask questions during organised group sessions. Please keep in mind that Club Coaches are all volunteers. Thanks.
