Leweston is a regional training centre for Modern Pentathlon, running monthly training days for Pentathlon and Triathlon (swim/bike/run) and up to 6 different types of multi-sports events during the year. Leweston runs 2 week long ‘athlon’ Sport Residential Training Camps over the Easter and Summer breaks and, in addition to this, the school has links to the Cattistock Pony Club, playing host to their annual Triathlon and Tetrathlon events.
The camps are aimed at 9 – 18 year olds who wish to develop their skills in Biathle, Pentathlon and Triathlon (older athletes will also be considered). Participating athletes enjoy a programme of daily running and swimming activities; the camps also offer the opportunity to try fencing, shooting, and biking. All training takes place on the Leweston campus and accomodation is offered.
Mick Flaherty, Leweston Sports Coach and National Biathle Coach runs the training programme and is supported by specialist triathlon, fencing and shooting coaches. All levels of athletes are equally involved with groups organised according to ability. All equipment is supplied by the school including guns and fencing kit.
The Easter camp culminates in the South West Biathle Championships and all participants automatically gain entry into this competition. The Summer camp culminates in the Leweston Triathlon and Tetrathlon and all participants will automatically gain free entry into one of these competitions.
Further information and registration forms for both camps are available from Mick Flaherty at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01963 211071.
