There is no regular weekend training offered by the Club though we do try and arrange a couple of weekend events throughout the year. Notwithstanding this members will regularly use the club network to organise private sessions reminding participants that these are not official UQ Sport/TRIADS operated activates and therefore uninsured.


Swimming for triathlon and multisport is done as per the UQ Aquatic Centre pool programme and UQ Swim Club
