Why Join the Multi-Sports Academy?

Why Join the Multi-Sports Academy?

King's regularly hosts and organises a number of multi-sports events, including a triathlon, biathlon and pentathlon.

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.

Run by former pentathlete, Lydia Rivett, the club offers children and young adults in the area the opportunity to participate in the sport. Having competed in Modern Pentathlon from grass roots through to world class level, Lydia has an in-depth understanding of the sport and training requirements for athletes at different levels.

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.

In addition to the training programme, Lydia can offer private lessons here at King’s College.

King’s Schools pupils have achieved a vast amount in Modern Pentathlon already with Sam and Josh Cobb from King’s College recently returning from the World Triathle Championships (continuous shoot-swim-run) with a wide array of medals. Nicholas DuToit from King’s Hall has also been selected to represent Great Britain at a world level. Members from the community club have also competed at national and international level.
