»» 3 x and current World Ironman Champion »» 5 x Australian Ironman Champion »» 7 x and current Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Ironman Series Champion “This sport is all about discipline, preparation and execution. The work ethic and determination I have seen in this squad is the reason they are producing great results."

»» Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Ironman Series debut 08/09 »» 2nd 2013 Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Ironman Series »» First Surf Life Saving Club: Newport “My first ever club was Newport. If I had this team when I was growing up; I’m pretty sure I would still be racing for Newport.”
This sport is not a ‘money’ sport. It has no lucrative career prospects. It is pursued by athletes who enjoy the prospects of knowing that the discipline, the ethic, the determination required will ultimately pay off in the people they become.
Individual cost involved: Swimming squad fees: $2000 - $3000 Racing Board: $2000 - $3000 Racing Ski: $3000 - $4000 Paddle: $600 - $700 Extras: Flights/transport cost, accommodation, goggles, swim suits, remedial treatments, supplements.
The training our athletes undertake is unsurpassed by any other amateur sport and arguably most professional sports. The commitment to perform at this level is gruelling, unrecognised and not comprehended by most. 13 sessions per week including: »» 5 x swim squads, 6-7 km per session »» 6 x water craft (board/surf ski/iron man), 2 hours per session »» 2 x run sprint sessions This commitment is even more impressive when recognising that a large percentage of our squad have external pressures of work, university and school (including the HSC).
Our athletes have little time available to hold part time jobs (however, some still manage to do so). Many of the families involved support more than one athlete.
Team costs involved: Coaching, logistics, gear trailers, sun tents, competition entry fees, ice baths, rehydration and recovery costs. We’ve identified these significant costs are the main reason NSW competitors are attracted to Queensland clubs. To support, sustain and grow the academy we will need help.
