Vale Tridents Equipment Storage and Equipment

(Oxfordshire)

The Vale Trident Junior Triathlon Club is one of only two children’s triathlon clubs in Oxfordshire and is run completely by volunteers. The club is in need of a new shipping container to store triathlon equipment and some items of equipment that are needed for running triathlons and aquathlons benefitting not only members but other young athletes.

Our goals:

  • Equipment owned by the club will be stored securely in a lockable, waterproof, pest free container.
  • The club will have the necessary equipment to train and host children's triathlons and aquathlons. This will enable children to try these sports under fully equipped race conditions.
  • To encourage both club members and race participants to progress their skills and increase their fitness and confidence whilst having fun in a safe environment.
£5k project Currently ranked in

How we will achieve our goals

Funding will enable this self funded triathlon club to purchase the equipment needed to ensure training and competitions can be undertaken using the appropriate equipment.

Where the money will go

The club is open to children between 8-16 of all abilites enabling children to experience a sport not covered in most schools. The club triathlons and aquathlons are open to any members of the community who would like to observe and support this sport. Children participating learn key life skills associated with the sport and team participation.

    The Vale Tridents Club is such a great club for young athletes (my kids love it) and we need every ones support. Quality equipment is important and even more so it the ability to store this equipment in a safe place to keep this in. Good luck and please vote.

    Vale Tridents Triathlon Club is a club like no other. Triathlon for all is its core value. A new container will help future proof the Club.

    A great Club for which I spent many years as the secretary – helping the club gain its accreditation.
    My son was an active member for 6 years a great organisation to belong to.
    We also helped organise purchase & delivery of the original Shipping container.
    Even then it was a bit battered and needed repaired before we could use it, so it has done many years sterling service.
