Development Squad Assessment Day Only 21 days to go!
Assessment day for the 2018 North East Development Squad. The squad is open to Tristar 2 and 3 athletes.
The day will consist of a 1500m running time-trial on the track at Blaydon Leisure and Primary Care Centre on Shibdon Road, Blaydon NE21 5NW. Registration from 10.45, with the track in use from 11:30 to 12.30.
We'll then transfer to Dunston Pool (Dunston Bank, Gateshead, NE11 9PY) and all the athletes will complete a test 200m swim (pool session 1.00 to 2.00).
I'll notify all the candidates of their results during the weekend, and invite successful athletes to join the Dev Squad, with the first session for the squad on Sunday 10 December.
Criteria for joining the squad
Qualification times for the squad are published on the regional website (https://www.britishtriathlon.org/north-east). Candidates that achieve bronze standard for both swim and run will be invited to join the squad. In addition, athletes who've consistently shown high performing results in regional races or have a high placing in the regional Grand Prix will also be invited. Depending on the make-up of the squad (girls / boys in each age group), an invite may be extended to candidates who are close to hitting both times or demonstrate excellence in one of the sports.
