Eltham College introduced the Tri2gether program a head of term one 2020, following a chance enquiry to Triathlon Victoria. The conversation started around, seeking assistance “to offer triathlon at our school, so students have more choices for how to get involved in physical activity”.
With marvelous onsite facilities and local coach Andre Obradovic, the program has made a strong start at Eltham College. The program included an enthusiastic group of students, who fit the training across two school campuses, around their existing busy schedule. T2G is offered to year nine students, who spend most of their week at a separate campus; and return only on Thursdays – where participants get a two-hour session of T2G.
“The schools Tri2gether program is a flexible well managed program that we implemented with the team at Eltham College. Great support was provided by Triathlon Victoria. Everyone worked together to ensure the participants were able to work together at their own level and have fun..” Andre Obradovic, Tri2gether Ambassdor
