Updates on North Dorset Triathlon Club training, races, and events


Return to Training Update - 3rd September 2020

As we move into September we also move closer to the clubs planned return to activities (coached and social). This includes more details around the session that we are trying to put back on including junior sessions.

For the juniors we have just sent out a survey to help understand the demand from you for these sessions. I just want to remind all parents and guardians of junior members that completing this will help us determine which activities to plan for.
As for the adults, please consider coming back to some of the social activities over the next couple of weeks as this is helping us understand the rate of return so we work out the coaching needs.

For all coached activities we are looking at using a new booking system called ClubSpark. This will help us keep an eye on the number and manged the sessions more effectively. More on this as it matures.

I know many are after any update on pool swimming sessions – so here we go. At present the Saturday mornings are still not available to us at Blandford, we even asked if we could turn up earlier (6.30am) but still no joy. They just do not have the staffing numbers to cover the extra hours and it is just too close to the swim lessons whist the prep and cleaning time that is needed is still so extensive. However, we may be in a position to get a Tuesday evening session back, and we may be able to get the whole pool, rather than just two lanes, for an hour between 8 and 9 pm. There is also the potential to get a Saturday afternoon slot (15:45-16:45) as above, but we are not sure how popular these times would be. To help with this we will put these options to you in a quick poll to see if you would like to attend.

Any questions please either post them on this FB feed or message me directly.

Stay safe
