The Pentathlon programme is divided into three stages:
Development: for younger pupils, athletes who come onto the programme with little experience, or those who do not wish to be part of a full training programme and just take part in local events and competitions.
Potential: for athletes who have been following a regular training programme; have been taking part in local events regularly and have started to take part at a regional and national level. This stage is also for younger athletes who show the potential to move into the Performance Squad.
Performance: for athletes from Year 9 and above who have been on a regular training programme for at least a year. They will have been taking part in national events and are looking to move to a more challenging training programme with more regular national competition.
The school has athletes competing at all levels of the sport from their first event to Regional, National, European and World Championships.
It is equally possible for pupils not looking to compete to access shooting, fencing, riding, running and swimming through the activities programme.
TRAINING CAMPS AND EVENTS
Thanks to Leweston’s unique combination of extensive grounds and open access pool the school hosts a number of regional and national competitions throughout the year. It also runs residential Easter and Summer training camps as well as individual training days. The camps are aimed at either 8 – 16 year olds or 9 to 18 year olds (depending on the camp) who wish to develop their skills in Biathle, Pentathlon and Triathlon. Athletes enjoy a programme of daily running and swimming activities as well as the opportunity to try fencing, shooting, and biking.
