History of Talisman Centre's Triathlon Club

History of Talisman Centre's Triathlon Club TCTC was established in 2008 and has been the primary training facility for more than 150 athletes over the past six years. The TCTC mission is to provide committed age-group and high performance athletes the resources to reach their potential by facilitating high quality experiential-based coaching, innovative training programs and integrated support services.

Who are our Club members?

Our members generally have one year of triathlon training experience. They are goal-orientated male and female athletes ranging between 20 and 60+ years of age. Members are training for a variety of events 60+ including Sprint, Olympic, Half Ironman and Ironman distances. As a Club we target several local races throughout the year where we provide coaching support and race day strategies.

What are the requirements to join?

Our coaching team asks that members have one year of racing experience. In order to participate in our bike and brick sessions, members must have their own road bike. To deliver top quality coaching and attention to each member we ask that TCTC members have the ability to swim 500 meters on their own before joining the Club.

Where do Club members train?

Talisman Centre provides athletes with a professional training environment to train for all three triathlon disciplines year-round. Athletes have the opportunity to improve technique and efficiency in the water by utilizing one of our two Olympic-caliber pools, practice to run longer distances during colder months on our 200m indoor track, and train on their own bicycle with individually prescribe power zone using the Tacx Flow trainer units located in our designated studio for the Triathlon Club and Endurance Training Systems (ETS) programs.

Who are the Coaches?

Under the leadership of our very own Endurance Training Technical Specialist, Jack VanDyk, the Talisman Centre Triathlon Club provides the foundation for athletes looking to maximize the time invested in training. Get a closer look at our exceptional coaches in their full biographies here.
