    Training

    Stirling Triathlon Club offers a variety of training sessions that are delivered weekly by coaches, helpers and group leaders. These sessions are aimed at people of all abilities and experience.

    The table below details the current sessions that are available, but is by no means a finite list. Many members meet regularly to train together on an informal basis, as well as take part in the club’s coached and led sessions.

    Throughout the year ad hoc events take place for members to join in with. Watch out on the web site and through social media links to find out what is going on at your club.

    If you are not already a member of the club, but would like to see what we are all about, then we would love to see you at any of our sessions. We have Free Introductory Taster Sessions where you can come along and try a session with us free of charge before you decide if you want to join us as a member. All we ask is that you drop us an email beforehand to membership@stirlingtriathlon.com, with details of your name and the session that you’d like to try out.

    Free Introductory Taster Swim sessions will be available on Wednesday evenings only as this is when we have the most coach and swim lane capacity, but please still get in touch at least a week in advance to discuss rather than turn up at poolside.
