Why Join the Multi-Sports Academy?
King's regularly hosts and organises a number of multi-sports events, including a triathlon, biathlon and pentathlon. We are supported by local former GB pentathlete Lydia Rosling, who runs a number of our multi-sports training sessions every week.
The King’s Multi-Sports Academy is designed to offer top level coaching from Lydia, with numerous weekly sessions on offer each week. The training can be flexible, with pupils booking onto the sessions that they want to attend.
We recognise that children take part is a variety of sports, which we would strongly encourage. Therefore, we have built a programme that can work around other activities.
Unleash Your Potential
In addition to the training programme, Lydia can offer private lessons here at King’s College.
The Academy is for boys and girls aged 8 to 18 years. This programme has helped support pupils such as Sam Cobb, who is a boarder at King’s College. This year Sam competed in the British National Tetrathlon Championships, as well as the first Under 17 National Ranking event, where he was crowned National Champion. He is now officially ranked number one in the UK in the Under 17 age category.
Sam also travelled to Portugal with the GB Pentathlon team for a week of training followed by competing in the Under 17 Europa Cup where he finished fourth.
