Stroud and District Athletics Club has its own dedicated triathlon section. This is run by a subcommittee of the main committee and can be contacted by using this form. SADAC is affiliated to the British Triathlon Federation giving members access to discounted insurance and membership.
The structure of the Tri Team provides a platform for triathletes and budding triathletes to train and compete at every level from beginner to International level. No Triathlon coaching is currently given but support and advice is always at hand through our closed Facebook group.
In order to join the Tri team a £10 surcharge is applied to the normal SADAC membership fee and this option can be accessed via the online membership system.
Once membership has been confirmed this allows access to the Facebook group and to the training events we run.
Kit – We have our own kit and an online shop where Beanies, running tops , hoodies, Tri suits, cycling shorts and cycling tops can be purchased.
Swimming – There is a SADAC swim session at Archway pool from 5-6pm every Saturday. This is aimed at all abilities from novice swimmers who wish to improve their technique to swimmers who wish to improve their speed. SADAC will be providing the pool and lifeguard so the only fee will be paid directly to the coach Andy Gardiner who is a BTF level 3 Triathlon coach. The fee is £5 per session
We intend it to be a fun and friendly session where all members can meet and exchange ideas and encouragement.
Lake swimming is arranged between members via the Facebook page with times dates etc arranged between themselves.
Cycling – SADAC offer winter Spin Classes at Stratford Park leisure centre. This is a 6 week programme on Wednesday evenings from 8.15-.9.00 pm. Cost will depend on numbers with SADAC hiring the facilities but it is likely to be in the region of £10 for the full course. Again this will be advertised to all SADAC members via Facebook and Lewis Saunders will co-ordinate and manage the list of attendees.
Cycling sessions are arranged via the Facebook page during the summer months with members contacting each other directly to arrange times dates and distances.
Further wetsuit swimming training sessions in Stratford Lido , open water swimming sessions and transition training sessions will be arranged during the summer months.
Running – we use the coaches in the main SADAC training system as it already caters for all abilities.
