Sheldon College in partnership

with Triathlon Australia


In a unique partnership with Triathlon Australia, Sheldon Academy of Sport Triathlon delivers an unparalleled athlete development pathway, utilising world class facilities, conveniently packaged with a first class, Sheldon College education.

Triathlon Programs

Available programs include our premium Triathlon Development Academy, suited to students wishing to fully commit to triathlon ahead of all other extra-curricular interests. Our Triathlon Squad is suitable for students wishing to participate without having to commit to the full extent of the Academy program.

Program graduates and current athletes regularly represent Queensland and Australia at events nationwide, in the Asia/Pacific region, and on the European Professional Tour.


Triathlon Squad

This option is suitable for students wishing to participate in triathlon without having to commit to the full extent of the Academy program. While catering for athletes of all levels of ability, the Triathlon Squad program is flexible, allowing students to continue to pursue other extra-curricular interests.

Swimming Training
All swimming training for Squad athletes occurs in the Sheldon College swimming pool. Athletes require their own kit bag, flippers, pull buoy, kick board, hand paddles and a snorkel.
Cycle Training
Cycle sessions are available each week for Squad athletes. Participants require general cycling equipment including a bike, helmet, spare bag and water bottles.
Running Training
Squad athletes also have access to running sessions, which take place on the main Sheldon College Oval.

Triathlon Development Academy

This option is suitable for students wishing to fully commit to triathlon ahead of all other extra-curricular interests. As such, students contemplating selecting this option should first meet with the Head Coach to ascertain their suitability for the Academy. Entrance to the Academy is based primarily upon the ability to fully commit to the program.

Above and beyond the squad option, athletes within the Triathlon Development Academy benefit from:
  • An initial personal meeting and program set-up
  • Additional programmed sessions to set personal goals and outcomes
  • Fortnightly periodised programs leading to key events or goals
  • Regular video analysis and feedback tailored to individual needs
  • Race planning and support
  • Access to regular testing and data analysis
  • Race day access to coaching staff
  • Phone and email contact and support
  • Access to coaching staff outside programmed session times

All swim, bike and run session times will be discussed directly with the Head Coach in the initial coach/athlete/parent meeting.

Age Requirements

Both the Squad and Academy are open only to Sheldon College students in Year 6 or above. Students in younger grades who are interested in triathlon are encouraged to join Sheldon Academy of Sport swimming, cross country and track & field programs in preparation for inclusion in our triathlon program at a later stage. We also operate a Term 4 triathlon program for students in Years 3 to 6.

Adult / Age Group Program

Please note that beyond our student programs, an adult/age group program is also available. For details of our Sheldon Triathlon Club adult program register your interest below.
