To celebrate Women in Sport Week 2022, Triathlon Ireland will host a special webinar on Wednesday, 9th March at 8pm. Whether you are new to the sport, returning after a break or gearing up to take on more triathlon challenges in 2022 – this one’s for you!
The event will be hosted by me ( Joanne), I will be chatting with the Triathlon Ireland Beyond the Finish Line Advocates and Munster Development Officer Eleanor Condon. Broken into two sessions to cater for a broad range of female athletes, the one hour webinar should be hugely inspiring and insightful.
The first panel discussion will focus on getting started on your triathlon journey, what equipment you need (and don’t need!), how to join your club, where to start, how to enter an event, open water swimming, the list goes on! There’ll also be a Q&A at the end of the session – if there’s anything you’ve always wondered about triathlon, this is the place! You can be guaranteed others will have the same question. This panel, features: Eleanor Condon,Triathlon Ireland Munster Development Officer, Ellen RyanTriTanium TC, Olivia McCartin, Athlone TC & Level 2 Triathlon Coach and Claire TynanBelpark TC
Triathletes Claire and Ellen will share their experience starting out in the sport, and the adventures they have had so far! Experienced coach Olivia McCartin will be able to help with your training questions, and Eleanor Condon will be on hand to answer any queries about joining a club.
Discussion during the second panel will focus on returning to sport after a break, and getting back to training with a club or racing, or both!
After the last two years, many triathletes will be returning to racing and training in a way we haven’t experienced since 2019. But returning to sport isn’t just for those returning post-pandemic, it’s also for those returning after injury or illness, post-partum, or after taking a break for any number of reasons.
Panellists Fiona O’Donnell, Amy O’Keeffe, Máire-Tríona Keane and Diane Cordner will chat about getting back to sport, and their experiences over the last couple of years. Diane recently qualified as a Level One triathlon coach, having started the process during lockdown she will share insight. into he coaching journey. Fiona has also recently started her coaching qualifications and will have lots to share after her first weekend of training!
The webinar is free to attend, and will be held on Zoom. Start time is 8pm and the event will run for 60 minutes, tell your pals, spread the word and come join us to celebrate #womeninsportweek
