At Hills Tri Club we aim to support juniors as they progress through the sport of triathlon by facilitating a fun safe environment for training and racing. We encourage all kids to come and give tri a try!
Where to start?
The best place to start is to come to a weekly club “Brick” session at Parramatta Park. It’s on each weekend at 7:30 (arrive at 7:20 to set up ) at Parramatta Park – meet at the bottom of the hill as you drive down, you will see our bike racks on the left.
Brick is held on both Saturday and Sunday and runs for the majority of the year – we post on our facebook page weekly when its not on due to special events etc.
Our club coaches Daniel Bain and Emir Mujcinovic also run their own specific junior training programs that are extremely popular.
At every Hills Tri event, we hold junior races as well as our main adults race that we are REALLY proud of! We don’t award medals for 1st place, at our events it all about having a good time, racing friends and setting personal best times.
All our races are in a safe environment that feature:
- A straight line open water swim with no waves
- Life saving IRB and paddle boarders on the water for safety
- A bike course closed to all cars
- Run course with aid stations
- St Johns first aid officers on hand all event
- A professional race kit with race numbers and transition area
- Electronic timing

Parents please note that we can’t put on events without YOUR help. We need about 15 parents each race to help direct kids in the right direction (or they all get lost / go the wrong way / do too many laps.. Hey they’re kids – as soon as the first person does the wrong thing they all just follow blindly!).
In order to keep tabs on who is helping out and to ensure we have enough people, we have set up a volunteer registration at our race page. Please help out and don’t just stand there watching, only to then wonder why things don’t go perfectly on race day.
