Welcome to NYP Tristars! We are a long established, friendly and enthusiastic Triathlon Club based in Ripon, North Yorkshire.

Whether the interest is in swimming, cycling, running or all three, we strive to develop individual skills whilst being part of a team. Membership is open to children from the year of their 8th birthday up to the age of 18. No previous experience of Triathlon is required, just come down and give us a ‘Tri’!

Our British Triathlon qualified coaches give members a fun and engaging training experience that caters for beginners through to those wanting to explore triathlon further. Whether the aim is to be more active or go on to compete in local and national competitions, our weekly training sessions will provide juniors and young people with the techniques and fitness to achieve their goals.

We know how important activity and sport is for mental and physical wellbeing. We provide a relaxed yet motivated atmosphere for young people to flourish in a safe environment. Triathlon teaches values of hard-work and persistence but above all will provide a setting to be fit, active, happy and healthy.

In addition to our regular training sessions we promote participation in our own Club Championships as well as other local events and races. Each year we host the highly popular Ripon Junior Triathlon. We also promote the development of athletes beyond 18 through coaching courses and we are proud that some of our Tristars are now part of the Coaching and Lifeguarding Team.
