TRYstars is a junior participation program for 7-12 year-olds that encourages kids to get involved in triathlon.

The TRYstars program addresses all FUNdamental movement skills, i.e. agility, balance, coordination, speed, running, jumping, gliding, buoyancy, throwing, catching, kicking and hitting.

FUNdamental movement skills are required for kids to develop basic movement literacy successfully, which will then encourage their successful participation in any sport. Kids with these experiences are far more likely to enjoy successful, lifelong participation in a range of sports and in active recreational pursuits.

The program consists of up to 8 action packed, game-based sessions. Each session may consist of 3 types of activities – a swim game, a ride game and a run game, with many sessions combining all 3 games into 1 combination activity.

Kids are rewarded throughout the program, with coloured TRYstars wrist bands as they achieve skill milestones in the areas of swim, bike, and run in both the Mini-Stars (7-9 yr olds) and Super-Stars (10-12 yr olds) program segments.

Busselton Triathlon Club runs our TRYstars program twice a year (depending on numbers) in the lead up to December and May Ironman events.

This is run from the Busselton Sea Rescue Building Carpark, Cnr Georgette Street and Geographe Bay Road, Busselton

For each session participants need bathers and towel, bike and helmet, shorts, t-shirt and running shoes.

All participants need to be able to swim 50 metres and ride a bike unaided without the use of trainer wheels.
