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.

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 became the European Biathle (run-swim-run) silver medalist, the European Triathle silver medalist (continuous run-shoot-swim) and has been selected to represent Great Britain in a Modern Tetrathlon (fence, swim, laser-run) in Germany later this year. Nicholas Du Toit, who attends King’s Hall School, started within the training two years ago and has just qualified for the GB Pentathlon Triathle competition where he will compete in Germany to represent the country in the U11 Run – Swim – Shoot competition.
