Transition Talk Weekly News - 5th Nov Vol 1.1

Another successful swim camp with Tanja Slater!

Now the off-season’s here, 28 Belpark members and juniors took up the opportunity to learn from Up & Active coach, Tanja Slater, to improve their swimming technique!

Members had two swimming sessions over the weekend and even within this short space of time Tanja could see hugh improvements. "Work on your swim technique, then think about the clock and how to swim easy/mid/hard"

Some thoughts from attendees "Another great weekend of swim training with Tanja, lots of drills and improvements made without even realising! Looking forward to the next one!"

Tanja will hopefully be back soon.


Belpark HP athletes attended a run clinic over the weekend with Emmett Dunleavey from Perfect Pacing. Emmett shared his wealth of knowledge on how to approach training and improve performance.

Watch this space for more updates on the HP athletes!


Belpark had 7 members attend the Triathlon Ireland Tri Leader Coaching program. They attended a full day and are set to lead a number of sessions throughout the year.
