The Program is usually held in September in the lead up to the triathlon season and our novice triathlon program. Rookie swimming is great for women wanting to gain confidence in the water.

Throughout the year we also run cycling programs that target some specific cycling events. For example Tour de Femme, The 6 Peaks Challenge and Fitz’s Challenge (varying distances).

Rookie Running is an annual program, being conducted February – April for women new to running and returning to running. The program follows a couch to 5km (with a 10km option) format, and is an excellent social way to improve fitness and develop a running habit.
