Athlete Interviews

On Thursday 8th and Friday 9th October 2015 we'll be holding informal meetings with athletes who, based on the Varsity Hill Climb and/or Varsity Biathlon results are in consideration for a place on the BUCS or Development Squads. We will only meet with new athletes or returning athletes from whom we require additional information.

  • Meetings will an informal chat last ~30mins with a member of the coaching team.
  • Prior to the meeting make sure you have completed our online athlete form.
  • Complete our weekly audit form which is a timetable of your week showing time available for training, lectures, sleep, travel and other commitments.
  • It is also useful if you can write down what your 'normal' training week looks like in terms of volume and frequency of swim/bike/run/S&C sessions
  • Make sure you have thought through your current strengths/weaknesses as an athlete and your goals for the coming season.
  • We'll also discuss your potential races programme so do a little research into the type/s of event you would like to compete in.
  • Bring your diary with you so you can check for any clashes with important dates such as BUCS races.
  • Finally this is an excellent opportunity to get answers to any questions you have about training with us.
  • We will arrange meetings by creating an event on the Leeds Triathlon Centre Facebook Group with list of people who we need to speak to and a list of time slots.
  • This will be done on Wednesday after the Varsity Biathlon results have been finalized.
  • You then need to reply to comment on the event with the time slot you would like. This will be done on a first come first served basis.
