In addition to the Head Coach we have four other qualified and very competitive coaches who assist in the strenuous programme of training, which keeps our talented triathletes in excellent physical and mental condition. With the knowledge and experience which these coaches bring to the club, it is of little surprise at the high standard of performance and success which the members achieve.

 

Ashley Nicholson – British Triathlon Qualified Coach  – Level 1

Ashley, like all of our coaches, is a parent/member of the club whose enthusiasm for the sport gets the better of them.
Already a Discovery Adult Cross Country Runner and a F.A. Level 1 Football Coach; it did not take too much persuasion for him to also become a Triathlon Coach.
Ashley’s beliefs are that whilst a child must be dedicated to the training sessions to gain success. The sessions must be enjoyable and with fun intermixed with the disciplines that are required.
