About the club
Who are we?
We are club of over 80 experienced athletes and beginners based in Chichester, West Sussex. Our members range from students to young professional to retirees and we really are a Triathlon club for people of all ages and abilities
Our aims and objectives are to increase the participation of the sport, particularly amongst novices, disabled athletes and juniors. So if you are looking to join a club to get fitter, compete at a higher level or just for the social element we cater for all.
We are a friendly bunch who run 4 active training sessions a week under the instruction of three British Triathlon Level 2 coaches who help to keep us motivated. Some people attend all the sessions and some prefer to do some of their training on their own.
We are also registered with the National body for Cycling Time Trials which allows members to compete in the local time trials as part of CWTC.
If you have seen the sport and fancy it, or if you know nothing about it, or if you just want to get fit! why not come along and meet our friendly members. Its free to start with so why not join in!

When do we train?
Official club sessions are;
We have the use of all 6 lanes on a Tuesday and two on a Thursday. This allows different abilities to occupy different lanes, meaning faster swimmers are not held up by the slower ones, and those learning or honing their stroke are not swum over by the hotshots.
Each lane is provided with a swim set which is broken down into drills to help improve technique such as the use of kick boards, pull buoys, paddles and fins and many others. In addition, individual tutoring is offered to help people perfect their technique and we follow our own periodised training plan to peak for specific upcoming events.
We encourage people to bring a drink with them and to wear a watch to time lengths etc.
The Sunday bike ride is on quiet country roads where possible and ranges from 50 – 70Km (30 – 45 Miles). We often visit the Rowlands Castle Café for a quick coffee and bite to eat before heading home for approx 12:30 – 13:00. We do not always stop at a Café make sure you have had a hearty breakfast and carry a full bottle..
