Triathlon Western Australia has a clear athlete pathway that moves athletes from a child (7-11) through to youth (12-15) to junior (16-19) and on to an under 23 athlete (20-22). This pathway way is diagramed below. The pathway allows athletes to self-select at any point to race either in the Performance Stream or Participation Stream based on their ability and desire.
