Non-Club Sessions

Cycling

Derby Mercury has an active junior section and for the youth age group there are regular road trips out with more experienced cyclists. Go to the the Derby Mercury Road race Club for further details.

Cycle Derby are putting on a series of training session in Chellaston on a Monday evening. It does clash with the swimming at Mickleover, but for those who are not swimming it it something to consider.

Running

Derby Athletic Club - Tuesdays/Thursdays and Sunday mornings.

Cyclo Cross (winter)

Notts and Derby Cyclo Cross league. During the winter these are races usually on a Saturday afternoon for all ages. They are lapped races and off road, great for learning bike handling skills, something all triathletes need to be good at.

There is also the West Midlands Cyclo Cross League which have their races on a Sunday. 

If you know of any other events let me know and I can circulate it to the other athletes - hilary.johnson@derbytriathlonclub.co.uk

Membership & Costs

It costs £15 to become a DTC Junior Member (click here to join) and each session costs £4 (£6 non-members).

Parent Responsibility

A parental agreement form will have to be completed by parents/guardians prior their children taking part. A register will be taken each week of those attending and it is expected that parents/guardians will leave and collect thier children at the stated time. Children will remain with the coach until a child is collected.

East Midlands Triathlon Series

The East Midlands Triathlon Race Series provides a number of races for juniors each summer which DTC juniors tend to target. You may end up being selected to represent the East Midlands at the Inter Regional Championships in September if things go well!! This is a chance to compete against other regions in the country. It is open for those athletes 11-14 years.
