Yorkshire based triathlon coaches TheTriathlonCoach.com have announced their coaching team for 2010. Joint head coaches Simon Ward and Jack Maitland will be supported by experienced coaches Dave Green and Fiona Hoare both of whom have been with TTC for 5 years.
In a new initiative, 3 new coaches will join on a Long Term mentoring programme. Louisa Edmonston (BTF L2), Louise Hanley (BTF L2) and Carol Young (BTF L2) will be involved in directly coaching athletes with full support and guidance from Maitland and Ward.
Simon Ward said “The mentored coaches have their own areas of expertise but they don’t have the breadth of experience that comes from years of full-time coaching. By working with them we can help them develop their own coaching styles within our overall philosophy and fast track their development".
The TriathlonCoach.com now has over 100 athletes on its books ranging from 1st year novices to World champions. Their coaches have experience at racing and coaching in all distances and Ward has personally coached athletes to 150 successful Ironman distance finishes and was the Coach of the Year 2009 in the 220 triathlon awards.
Jack Maitland is also currently Director of triathlon at Leeds Metropolitan University and personal coach to Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee. Recently Maitland and fellow Leeds Met coach Malcolm Brown finished runners up in the High-Performance Coach of the Year category of the 2009 UK Coaching Awards.
