The High-Performance Triathlon programme at BISP is dedicated to creating strong, smart athletes equally capable in disciplines of swimming, cycling and running.
Triathlon is a complex sport requiring balance, endurance and strength across all three modalities, and we strive to set up our athletes for successful performance for years to come; whether it be through college scholarships, professional careers, or other athletic dreams.
Building on Head Coach Marco Castro (Zane) years of coaching experience, this programme is designed with every detail in mind.
Fitness, strength, mobility, nutrition, and skill are all paramount to the training and education of our triathletes. A keen understanding of adolescent development in the realm of endurance sports is key to the success of this programme.
All of our triathletes are trained not only to be their healthiest selves; but their mindset and understanding of the training principles are part of the education intertwined in this programme. Our goal is to create well-rounded athletes prepared to compete confidently on the global stage of the growing sport of triathlon.

bringing Zane in to do the same here.
