Welcome to the first edition of Transition WA. As the largest private triathlon coaching and training provider in Australia with branches in Victoria and Queensland, Tri Alliance is excited to announce its establishment in WA. A quick review of our website will reveal that while coaching and training is a focus, becoming part of the Tri Alliance community offers far more, from great deals with suppliers, technical advice on all issues associated with triathlon to helping keep our members fit and healthy and ready to enjoy our great sport.
Tri Alliance has something for everyone, from novice beginners wanting to experience training in a group environment and the thrill of their first triathlon, through to experienced triathletes with visions of the podium at world championship level. Our coaches have done all of this both locally and travelling internationally.
They will spend the time to understand each triathlete’s goals and help structure their programme and training to suit work life balance. There is a range of training time and location options to suit and these can be found under the training menu on the WA link on our site.
We are all about getting the process right and the performance and outcomes will follow. Most of all we are about making sure our triathletes are enjoying the sport and their association with Tri Alliance.
It was great to see Tri Alliance colours at the Busselton Ironman with a few of our east coast athletes making the trip for this epic event. You will see our presence more over the WA summer season with our coaches and athletes decked out in Tri Alliances wide range of racing, swimming, cycling and running gear.

We already have a duathlon WA age group state champion and are looking for more great results at the upcoming WA Sprint Championship, but more so the opportunity to welcome triathletes of all ages and abilities so if you see anyone in Tri Alliance gear, be sure to say hello.
