Schools Roadshow

Take Part

Schools

Welcome to the Castle Triathlon Series new school programme, ‘Tri-Knights’, the first curriculum linked triathlon resource for primary schools in the UK.

Tri-Knights Schools Roadshow

We are passionate about helping schools bring to life triathlon and have done this successfully over the last 3 years through a unique cross curriculum School Roadshow.

 

Primary schools each bring 30 KS2 children to a Castle venue for a half-day of triathlon training and half day cultural learning about the historic venue and setting. All of the activity is curriculum linked helping schools achieve their statutory requirements whilst keeping the children healthy and inspired (by the World’s fastest growing sport). Bikes are provided for all children and elite triathletes join the training team to share insights with those attending.

Both Castle Howard & Hever Castle will host school triathlon cross curriculum training days in 2018. Schools can pick a day to suit them from the ones available. The cost is £15 per child attending including all 8 training sessions across the castle culture activities and the triathlon training. The days activities are geared around a minimum of 30 in a session and children can be accompanied by a teacher or parents. If you are from a small school, please register below and we will endeavour to match you up with another similar sized school group.
