Junior Triathlon Course
Kids generally love to run, swim and get on their bikes so why not combine that in one great activity provision offered by Maindy Centre. This is not only great exercise but is also an excellent way to make new friends.
Our Junior Triathlon course is open to children aged 8yrs plus that can swim multiple lengths of the pool and ride a bike without the need of assistance.
Entry to the programme is by trial in the first instance. Please contact Maindy@gll.org and Tracey our Junior Triathlon co-ordinator will contact you with further details.
Do you want your child following the footsteps of inspirational Sports Personality of the Year, Geraint Thomas? Well you can do just that on the exact same track that Geraint himself trained on.
This learn to ride session will cover children using balance bikes to those slightly older that are learning to ride. The session is led by Welsh Cycling and Better Maindy Centre accredited coaches and is a drop in activity:
Every Tuesday 4.30pm – 5.30pm
We have bikes available to use for free but would always recommend to bring a bike that the child is already trying to ride and also don’t forget your helmet.
Once learn to ride has been mastered we have the next step for improving your child's cycling ability with our Better go Ride sessions.
These are advanced cycling sessions led by Welsh Cycling coaches which will strengthen existing skills and set challenges to equip riders for entry into track or road racing.
The sessions are delivered on the Maindy Centre Velodrome using the cycling track and internal road circuit.
Every Thursday 4.30pm - 5.30pm
We have bikes available to use for free but would always recommend to bring a bike that the child is already riding and also don’t forget your helmet.
This course teaches various lifesaving and rescue techniques to provide children the skills they need to be confident and safe in or around the water.
