Galway Juniors

GTC Junior Membership is open to all 8 to 17-year-old children:

  • The training for the juniors usually involves 1 swimming session a week. This occurs either in the pool, under the guidance of a trained instructor or (weather pending) in the beautiful Salthill Bay that is right on our doorstep.
  • Track running and turbo sessions (via zoom) are also on offer, with bike skills, bike rides and brick sessions during the summer months
  • All levels are catered for. The minimum age for joining is 8 yrs.
  • Parents’ participation is essential for all our members… It’s NOT a drop-off service
  • A working bike is essential as are runners, a helmet & rainproofs
  • We have GTC gear which is available to purchase for the juniors – Visit our gear store HERE
  • We also train the juniors in all the disciplines of Triathlons, including the all-important Transitions
    where we hold numerous drills to help the kids to minimize their time spent in transitions
  • Above all, we want the children to be happy, healthy and fit for life, to instil in them a love of sport,
    exercise and healthy competition
