Alameda Triathlon Coaches are professionals who deliver top quality training for athletes to achieve the different Alameda Triathlon certification levels.

Each Coach is certified by a reputable organisation and has to go through an Alameda Triathlon Coach Training Programme, which highlights the different elements of the Alameda Triathlon system for athlete progression, ensuring consistency in the delivery of our training system.

There are two levels of coaches, one who can coach and certify Recreational Triathletes and the other who is capable of coaching and certifying Competitive Triathletes. Additionally, those who assist in athlete coaching can also have their "Coaching Assistant" designation.

Please note that the below list of requirements to achieve the different levels is for guidance, and that acceptance of Coaches will always depend on individual evaluation by Alameda Triathlon.
