SADAC now has an official Triathlon section known as Stroud and District Athletics Club Triathlon Team or SADAC Tri Team for short.
To join this section and reap the training benefits, when the next membership forms are issued next year there will be an option to sign up for this section with an extra cost of £10. An official kit has been designed and approved by the SADAC committee and it should be in production early next year.
Prior to this new membership date all SADAC members now have the option to join in with some of the training we will be offering over winter
Swimming- From January 13th 2018 there will be a SADAC swim session at Archway pool from 5-6pm every Saturday. This will be aimed at novice swimmers who wish to improve their technique and speed. SADAC will be providing the pool and lifeguard so the only fee will be paid directly to the coach Andy Gardiner who is a BTF level 3 Triathlon coach. The fee is likely to be under £5 but is yet to be finalised.
This session will initially be on offer for 4 weeks to gauge level of interest and Facebook reminders will be posted. We intend it to be a fun and friendly session where all abilities can attend.
Cycling- SADAC will offer a winter Spin Class at Stratford Park leisure centre. This is a 10 week programme on Wednesday evenings from 8.15-.915 pm. Cost will depend on numbers with SADAC hiring the facilities but it is likely to be in the region of £35 for the full course. Again this will be advertised to all SADAC members via Facebook and Lewis Saunders will co-ordinate and manage the list of attendees.
Further wetsuit swimming training sessions in Stratford Lido , open water swimming sessions and transition training sessions will be arranged for the summer of 2018.
