Performance Assessments

1 - 2 April



The Performance Assessment Weekend takes place as the first event in the British Triathlon Youth & Junior Super Series.

All athletes with aspirations to race in the British Triathlon Youth & Junior Super Series are required to attend this weekend, with the results from the weekend setting the order of entry for the initial races. The assessments include a swim time-trial on the Saturday at the University of Nottingham followed by a combined, timed bike-run on the Sunday at Prestwold Hall Circuit.

Some senior athletes will also need to attend the Performance Assessments in order to complete for starts in Tier 1 races. More information about which athletes will need to attend will be released in January.


Entry Standards:

Due to time and capacity restrictions, athletes entering the Performance Assessments should be able to achieve the minimum swim standards as follows: 

Juniors & Seniors – 800m swim in under 11 minutes 30 seconds

Youths – 400m swim in under 6 minutes 


Youth and Junior athletes – If you have not competed in a Performance Assessments before AND are not a member of a regional academy, you will need to attend an Academy-led bike session within your region. This is to ensure all competitors at the Performance Assessments are able to compete safely and confidently within a bike pack. Please contact your relevant Regional Academy Lead for more information about your regions.
