Juniors

Team Cherwell Junior Section is thriving.  

We race in the BFT South Central Series which can see us traveling to Southampton, Portsmouth and Eaton Dorney near Windsor. All our coaches are voluntary and have a wide knowledge of triathlon who will help you train and prepare you for racing.

Welcome Message
I enjoy coaching the junior section, every triathlete has their favourite element of triathlon and then the element they don’t enjoy it’s those elements that I like to try and tap in to in hope that they will grow to enjoy it! When watching our juniors race I feel very proud of them all racing in the club colours because I know that they will give 110% every time they stand on the start line.

Richard Hughes
Level 2 BTF Coach
I’ve been involved in Tri for 20 yrs. Transferring from playing Rugby at various levels. After entering my 1st race in Banbury the sport enticed me in and I've now competed at all distances including multiple finishes at long distance and even a 4 day adventure challenge. Team Cherwell offers a great club spirit and it’s a pleasure coaching children from their first ever race to racing for GB, at all distances. I'm always available to help athletes with their long term development. Get in touch

Level 1 BTF Coach
I have always enjoyed running and swimming and did my first marathon in London in 1989. I started doing Triathlons in the mid-nineties when Team Cherwell was formed. Over the years I have competed in lots of Triathlons of varying distances including Olympic Distance. I did my first half Ironman 2005 and have also done several full Ironman races in Henley, Lanzarote, Copenhagen. I might do one more!
Jean-Paul Hamilton
Level 1 BTF Coach
I have always enjoyed running, swimming and cycling and became a member of Team Cherwell in 2012 setting myself the challenge of doing all three together. I started coaching the juniors in 2016 and get a great deal of satisfaction in helping them to develop and improve, they’ve even taught me a thing or two with their enthusiasm for the sport. I regularly compete in Triathlons preferring the 70.3 or middle distance however in 2017 I am due to take part in my first long course, Ironman event.
James Allen
Training for Level 1 BTF Coach
I've been helping out at Team Cherwell track sessions for about a year now.  My eldest daughter Holly used to belong to the club and my youngest Niamh started at the club last year and I thought why not help out while I'm there! I enjoy getting dirty on my mountain bike which has taken me to Scotland, Wales and Gran Canaria.  I also like doing my own bike maintenance which helps with the kids bikes. I hope to do my Level 1 BTF coach course this year.
