WORD FROM THE COACHES
We have had a great start to our Winter Triathlon Training this week, with big numbers at our Swim Monday Night and Windtrainer last Night.
It’s great to see everyone so enthusiastic and ready to get stuck back into training. By starting your training routine now it will make it a lot easier once the weather gets colder (and wet!) and sessions get harder. So set yourself up for a good season by starting now.
This Saturday Night we celebrate our achievements from the 2012/2013 Season, with some big awards up for grabs. We look forward to announcing the winners of our awards – including our Prestigious John Cornish Memorial Scholarship. Purchase your tickets online for our Presentation Night if you have still not got yours!

TRI ALLIANCE WELCOMES NEW STRENGTH & CONDITIONING COACH
Tri Alliance Victoria welcomes Kemble Edelsten to the coaching team as our Head Strength and Conditioning Coach.

He holds university qualifications including a Bachelor of Teaching /Physical Education and a Graduate Degree in Sports Science.
A multiple Ironman Hawaiian finisher, Kemble has again qualified for Kona in 2013, posting a 4:35 bike split in Ironman Melbourne. With preparation severely disrupted by a serious neck injury sustained in 2012, he went about developing strength and conditioning programs based primarily in the gym. Focusing on postural strength and function, he was able to rehabilitate his injury whilst building exceptional core strength that translated to explosive power on the bike and run.
