Who are the Otters' coaches?

Worthing Otters Junior Triathon Clubs aim is to offer young people aged between 8 and 16 the opportunity to participate in the sport of triathlon. Our main base is at Splashpoint, Brighton Road, Worthing. We hold a weekly session on Mondays throughout the year with the exception of short breaks at holiday times (e.g. Christmas, Easter, Bank Holiday's, etc). We welcome all standards of ability to join us and you can do as much or as little as you want. You must be able to swim 50 metres though. Most people who come along haven't done anything like this before and you may find it a little daunting at first but don't worry - everybody does. It is still fun to have a go and if you decide to go in for a race the satisfaction of completing your first multi-sports event will be immense what ever position you come or time you do. Our aim is to offer everybody the chance to take part in an organized race but if you just want to come along to training that is cool too

FAQ's


Something you want to ask us?

Initially there would be no charge; let’s call it a “Try Before You Buy”. It gives you and your children a chance to meet us first and Ann (our swim coach) a chance to assess your children. Following on from that there is an annual fee of £25 plus £10 per month payable by standing order

The question on everyone's lips ! All our rates are highly competitive, we offer a lot for your hard earned money and have a selection of payment terms for the package that suits you. When you see us (we hope you do !) we can talk about it but we promise we won't overcharge !

Training Programme


Where and when do you train?

Our main base is at Splashpoint, Brighton Road, Worthing. We hold a weekly session on Mondays throughout the year with the exception of short breaks at holiday times (e.g. Christmas, Easter, Bank Holiday's, etc). However, the venues that we use do vary depending on which discipline we are featuring for each age group.

For this term sessions will be on Mondays evenings between 6.30-8.45. This will consist of a run 1st (weather permiting) followed by a swim session.
