Performance Assessment Weekend

All you need to know about the 2024 Performance Assessment Weekend

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

All athletes with aspirations to race in the British Youth and Junior Super Series are required to attend the PA’s, 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 followed by a combined, timed bike-run on the Sunday.

Youth & Junior athletes (born in or between 2005 and 2009) who have not competed at the Performance Assessments before and are not a member of a Regional Academy will need to attend an Academy-led bike session within their region to test their bike skills ahead of the Performance Assessments.

Youth & Junior athletes who need to attend a bike session can contact their relevant English Regional Academy Lead here. Athletes based in Scotland please contact, and in Wales, Welsh Academy Lead,

Some senior athletes will also need to attend the Performance Assessments in order to compete for starts in the Series. Please note, attendance at a cycling training session with the relevant Regional Academy may also be required for some senior athletes prior to the PA’s. Information about which senior athletes will need to attend the PA’s and cycling training sessions is available in the Senior Super Series Selection Policy and Senior Super Series Explained document.
