As of March 18th, Fremantle Triathlon Club has decided to postpone all of our FTC coached and FTC planned group training sessions, starting with swimming tonight 🙁 due to the public health issue currently playing out with COVID-19 and the many unknowns surrounding this virus 🦠.
We hope you understand that this was a hard decision to make, however as a committee we feel it is the best one for our community as a whole in these unknown circumstances.
FTC also use outside coaches for some of our sessions and at this stage, to our knowledge they are continuing and we respect that decision. We advise members to keep updated on these on a week by week basis independently.
Remaining active is incredibly important, and we are working on ways to encourage and support that, however please refrain from posting to arrange group training on this page, as this is what we, as a club, are trying to discourage – just to do our bit.
We are by no means discouraging your training and believe you need to stay active and healthy during these times, just please do not use this platform to arrange group catch up – but by all means use it to support and encourage one another in any other capacity during these times.
We are working on a way to keep the Run Series alive (virtually) and many of our ride GPX files are already posted every week for you to download – scroll through previous posts from Ken to find these. Yun is kindly doing strength and conditioning via online streaming.
Thanks for your support everyone, keep training, wash your hands, be nice and we will update when required.
We decided as a committee – the consequences of us over-reacting are minimal and hopefully short lived, however under-reacting can have potential dire outcomes.
Train on and be nice to our healthcare workers during this time 💙🖤.
