Finding the Next Generation of International Athletes

As part of our efforts to develop the next generation of world-class Irish athletes, Triathlon Ireland is hosting a series of Emerging Talent Workshops during 2016.

These one-day swimming and running events which are designed to identify teenage athletes for our Emerging Talent Programme.

Emerging Talent Programme

The Emerging Talent Programme seeks to identify teenage athletes with specific attributes which make them potentially suitable in future years to compete in triathlon at an elite international level.

It helps train selected athletes to fulfil their athletic potential and provides support and guidance so they can progress towards Triathlon Ireland's National Performance Squads.
