2021 World Triathlon “Triathlon School” Webinar

04 Mar, 2021 • World Triathlon

Course Language: English

The sport of triathlon can contribute to promoting the practice of physical activity in educational centres during the school period and beyond. The triathlon participation allows the students to stay active, healthy and fit. In addition, triathlon can enable the children to have fun while discovering a new discipline, and experiencing the opportunity to overcome new personal challenges. It also allows them to socialise with different people, gives them the opportunity to learn the basic skills of triathlon, promotes the practice of physical activity in a natural environment, and leads into the promotion of a long term healthy lifestyle. In addition, physical activity is essential for learning; research shows that physical activity has positive effects on the brain (cognitive) and on school performance.

The Triathlon School concept is intended to promote the sport of triathlon among the students and to encourage the participants to have a first contact with the sport of triathlon. It also aims to help the National Federation to raise awareness of the sport among a larger community and to initiate triathlon programs at the schools.

This 90-minute webinar is an invitation-only courtesy. We are targeting National Federation representatives and World Triathlon certified coaches specifically working with children to participate on this webinar.
