Training Sessions

Caerphilly Tri-ers training sessions are ideal for anyone looking to get fit and have fun while doing so. We currently offer coached swimming sessions and turbo sessions. We currently link up with Caerphilly Runners to provide our members with quality run coaching in Caerphilly.

Swimming Sessions

Swimming is the most technical out of the three disciplines of triathlon, it is often the weakest discipline for many. Our swim sessions are tailored to improve your fitness and technique in the water, hopefully leading to quicker times and more smiles!

Thursday Swim Session
What? Thursday night swim sessions are designed for club members to develop their swimming stroke. Working in a small group, Paul (our swim coach), will work on elements of your stroke that require some additional attention.
Thursdays 18.00 – 19.00
Caerphilly Leisure Centre, Caerphilly, CF83 3SW

Saturday Swim Session
What? Saturday session will require swimmers to follow drill cards, with Paul offering individual feedback and tips throughout the session. 
Saturdays 17.00 – 18.00
Where? Caerphilly Leisure Centre, Caerphilly, CF83 3SW
Cost? £5

Please note – swim sessions must be booked in blocks of 4 – i.e: 4 sessions at a time

As a club we often link up with Rich Brady, a BTF level 3 triathlon coach. He runs private coaching as well as coached swim sessions. A number of our members swim with him in addition to using our sessions – keeno’s!

Cycling sessions

You’ve finished swimming, now its time to jump on your bike! Cycling with groups is far more enjoyable than out on your own, or if you hate cycling, there’s others to suffer with you!

Where? Cwrt Rawlin School, Cae Croes Heol, Caerphilly CF83 1SN

Group rides will be organised starting monthly in the winter months.
