Young athletes keen to dive into the world of triathlons are being given the chance to learn the sports fundamentals ahead of the inaugural Busselton 100. Busselton Triathlon Club is hosting a Sunsmart TryStar program for children between six and 12 years old over the next eight weeks. Sunsmart TryStar is the national junior sport participation program for triathlon in Australia, teaching basic movement skills including agility, balance, co-ordination, speed, running and jumping aimed at encouraging young people to get involved in both triathlons and other sports. TryStar coach Ben Freer said the program would open up active opportunities for young people both in triathlons and other sports. “The program is built around a series of participant competencies and kids exposed to these experiences are far more likely to enjoy successful, lifelong participation in a range of sports and in active recreational pursuits,” he said. “The kids participating now are really enjoying it and there are places for more to join up.” The eight-week program costs parents $50, for more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Busselton Triathlon Club Facebook page.
