Emerging Talent Programme - Talent ID Day

Post Primary School Bike 2018

Triathlon Ireland is holding a Talent ID Day on Sunday, 6th October for junior athletes who are interested in joining and being a part of the Triathlon Ireland Emerging Talent Programme.

The Emerging Talent Programme (ETP) was set up in 2016 to provide a pathway for talented young athletes with a desire to race for Ireland at an Elite level. The programme provides junior athletes between the ages of 13 and 18 with training days, coaching advice and support if selected to compete abroad.

If you are interested in trying out for the ETP, please email ivan@triathlonireland.com with athlete name, age and Triathlon Ireland membership number. Please note that all correspondence must be with the athlete's parent/guardian if the athlete is under 18. There will be a second date at a different location announced in the coming weeks.
