The Clubs Ethos
The Ethos of Wicklow Triathlon Club Juniors is built on fun learning and development of your children through sport. The club is committed to create an active social sports club, being inclusive not exclusive, where people come to train, compete and socialise in equal measure.
Although Triathlon is typically a solo sport, we aim to develop the children to respect the core values of teamwork.
- Respect for themselves and each other.
- A little bit of hard work
Our mission is to foster and develop the children through sport. We want to encourage participation in the sport by people from all sections of society and the community, whether athletes, parents, coaches, administrators and to provide the appropriate facilities for all who wish to participate. We would like to bring our children to a point where they have confidence to take part in various competitions and ultimately, to compete with their peers.
To maintain the children’s interest in both the club and sport, we believe it is important to create an environment where the children can develop friendships within the club. This will also promote healthy competition from within our membership.
