TRIATHLON WA STATE TEAM

Triathlon WA selects a State Team to support WA athlete development and representation at national and international triathlon events. The team is selected for a period of the specified season, in accordance with the Triathlon WA Selection Policy.

The aim of the Triathlon WA (TWA) Pathway program is to provide a nurturing and supportive environment for the development of young West Australian athletes, allowing them to maximise their enjoyment and potential in the sport over time. This is achieved by engaging with the network of athletes, parents and home coaches to support each individual athlete to achieve personal excellence and to prepare athletes for the demands of training, competition and travel during the performance pathway and towards future representation at National and International triathlon events.

Season 2024 / 2025 will see the continued evolution of the Triathlon WA Pathway Program including the continued alignment with AusTriathlon. The philosophy will remain the same – to create environments where athletes can develop the necessary tactical, technical, physiological and psychological skill competencies to aid progression through to the National Athlete Pathway.

The TWA Pathway Program is focused on facilitating development opportunities for each athlete in the WA Team (Youth, Junior and U23) in line with the AusTriathlon National Pathway Network Strategy and Hierarchy of Discriminators (see below). The aim of the program is to help build the athlete’s knowledge and potential through education and skill sessions, and to develop their racing tactics and technical skills through masterclass clinics, camps, travelling race camps and draft Legal racing opportunities.

Applications for the WA Team for 2024/25 is open to any junior triathlete aged 13 -23 years (DOB 2002-2012) who is a Standard or Premium member of Triathlon WA, is a resident of WA, and who has access to a road bicycle. Selection will be via a nationally approved selection policy and the ability to apply to be a member of the WA TEAM will be available at any stage throughout the season.
