About the program

Triathlon - swimming, cycling and running - is one of the most physically balanced sport in the world. Physical and mental strength, coordination, endurance, confidence, ability to set and reach goals and a love for the sport is what we gently guide children. It will impact their overall future as well as health.

The ‘Kids Triathlon’ training group consists of:

Swimming - twice a week, in one of the Kids Swimming groups based on level.

Levels range from ‘Leaen to Swim’ to ‘Kids Swim Squad’. We also offer a trial session in order to examine your child’s abilities and for us to choose the perfect group for him/her.

Next is the Running group and the Cycling group. On this page you can find all the needed information about these groups.

Kindly contact us if you need any help, we are more than happy to effectively assist you.

Peer in Groups
We divide the group into smaller age groups so children can feel in their element at the trainings, can meet many new friends and create lots of contacts
Developing physical aspects
Special program with a fun, game vibe to increase endurance, speed, agility, strength and coordination
Improving the body’s health
Our coaches don’t force kids to show any specific time ‘no matter what’, progress in speed, pace and endurance comes naturally. Results co-relate with each child’s current shape, and trainings are based on effort
Improving the mental health
Educating children on teamwork, good sportsmanship, no-quitting-mentality, setting goals and reaching them

FAQ
  • From what age can my kids join?

    Trainings are held in age group 10-16 years old. Dividing kids into age groups helps minimize the age gaps between them and helps create groups where the kids are closer in swimming, cycling & running levels. Groups are close in age this way, which helps them bond more, have a higher motivation, compete with each other and find lots of like-minded friends!

  • I’m not sure if my child will like it, is it possible to come for a trial session?

    Yes, you can take your child for a trial session before registering for a program. Kindly contact us and we will be happy to sign your child up for a trial session, which is AED 60.

  • What are time trials and does my child need them?

    During the semester, your child will improve on his/her strength, speed, endurance, coordination, and so much more! Time trials are needed for us to be able to track you child’s progress in all aspects and show it to you. This way, kids will also learn what it is like to reach new levels with hard work, how to set goals and reach them! Time trials will motivate your child to improve and keep up the trainings, especially if they see such a friendly, competitive environment around them.

  • How are we different to other kids sports schools?

    We are a unique sports school. Unlike other sports schools, ILSS, doesn’t force kids to do anything. Instead, we fill kids up with strong, goal-oriented motivation to be a better version of themselves everyday. We teach kids to improve in a healthy way and reach their dream goals, whilst enjoying the whole journey. In addition, our groups have a maximum number of only 7 kids per group to make sure that the coach can distribute his/her focus more efficiently and effectively throughout all, thus making the trainings more effective too!

  • This program has running and cycling classes, what about swimming?

    Depending on kids swimming skills we can offer groups from level 0 - "learn to swim" to level 8 - swimming squad group. We suggest to swim al least 2 days a week in addition to Kids Triathlon group.

  • What equipment will I need?

    1. Running shoes and clothes. 2. Road bike, cycling shoes, helmet — you can rent them for a lessons sessions. 3. It will be nice to have a cycling uniform: shorts and a top - bibs and a jersey.
