THE RACE PACE JUNIOR PROGRAM
Race Pace Coaching has a very successful junior program for beginner school age kids through to the Junior Elite Category (5yrs - U/23s) racing at a State and National Level in Triathlon, Swimming, Cycling and Running.
Currently we have Hamilton Andrews, Zane Hefferran, Harry Ladd, Cassie Barnes, Alexa Leary, Chloe McLennan, Jessica Huxley and Alyssa Rose in the Triathlon Queensland Junior Development Squads. They are also competing in the Australian Junior Triathlon Series and National Schools Events. Ten of our Junior Race Pace Athletes have qualified for the State School Triathlon and Aquathalon Championships held in Hervey Bay 2017.
Race Pace Coaching offers Junior Development Scholarships where coaching services are provided free of charge and some training equipment is provided to support the development of juniors into the sport of Triathlon. The scholarship is aimed toward new and emerging talent and the recipients may not necessarily be the best performing athlete but those who show desire, good sportsmanship, good work ethic, great attitude and training consistency.
Race Pace Coaching offers up to 12 coached sessions a week in varying locations on the Northern end of the Sunshine Coast that juniors can attend. These sessions expand beyond the just swimming, cycling and running. We include skills sessions for swimming, cycling, running, transitions, body maintenance including yoga sessions working on the athletes flexibility, strength, core and relaxation techniques.
Throughout the year Race Pace Coaching give their athletes the racing edge by conducting race simulation in our Training Events and Seminars where athletes gain knowledge in metal skills, goal setting, race preparation, nutrition, mindfulness and more!
The "Gold Standard" of coaching for the juniors consists of:-
- Personalised programs
- Unlimited Coached Sessions
- The opportunity for one-on-one time with the coaches for goal setting and monthly reviews.
- Race Pace Training Events
- Race Pace Training Seminars
- Coaches attend most juniors races and training camps where possible (such as development camps offered by TQ & TA)
Peter and Jacque are continually up skilling their own personal development as coaches to give our athletes the best opportunities possible in the sport of triathlon, swimming, cycling and running.
