3433 Triathlon Club, formerly known as Talisman Centre Triathlon Club (TCTC), was established in 2008 and has been the primary training facility for more than 350 athletes to date. The 3433 Triathlon Club's mission is to provide committed age-group and performance athletes the resources to maximize their potential through high quality coaching, innovative training programs and integrated support services.
Who are our Club Members?
Our members generally have one year of triathlon or endurance based training experience. They are goal-orientated male and female athletes ranging between 20 and 60+ years of age. Members are training for a variety of events including Sprint, Olympic, Half Ironman and Ironman distances. As a Club, we target several local races throughout the year where we provide coaching support and race day strategies.
What are the requirements to join?
Our coaching team asks that members have one year of racing experience. In order to participate in our bike and brick sessions, members must have their own road bike. To deliver top quality coaching and attention to each member, we ask that 3433 Triathlon Club members be able to swim 100 meters on their own before joining the 3433 Triathlon Club.
Where do Club Members train?
Repsol Sport Centre provides athletes with a performance training environment to train for all three triathlon disciplines year-round. Athletes have the opportunity to improve technique and efficiency in the water by utilizing one of our two 8-lane 50m pools, practice to run longer distances during colder months on our 200m indoor track and treadmills, and train on their own bicycle with individually prescribed power zones using indoor smart trainers located in Repsol Sport Centre’s 3433 Sport Performance Centre.
What if I don’t meet your criteria to join?
We sometimes hear that the 3433 Triathlon Club can be ‘intimidating’ and our Members are all ‘professional athletes’. We are a club that strives to challenge you in training to provide a better experience day to day. For those who think the program might be out of reach we have developed our Learn2Tri program to allow individuals to experience all aspects of triathlon and progress at their own pace.
