Welcome to Perform Academy Tristars.
We pride ourselves in delivering professional, fun and challenging bespoke triathlon training for children in East Hampshire. The club develops children's confidence in triathlon through specific, sport-related training and fitness sessions all taught at an age appropriate level.
Perform creates a fun and supportive atmosphere where all participants and parents help each other to succeed. Emphasis is placed on the children making informed choices and developing their independence to race. Using this format, Perform has worked with a number of highly successful children who have all excelled in the British Triathlon race series; made academy level; race at county level; and/or have regular podium finishes. All secured without pressure from coaches and parents making it a real achievement for our young athletes.
Perform is fortunate to be led by talented coaches and Primary Teachers who have a deep knowledge and understanding of triathlon but importantly, of child development. We are one of only a few clubs with junior-specific coaches with many years of teaching experience shared between them. You will not find sessions designed for adults but taught to children with us!
