Squads and sessions

FSA Coaching runs a number of squads and training sessions on the Kāpiti Coast.  Below are the squads and sessions we’re running during Winter 2018.  Contact us to find out about joining up to any of the sessions.

Our triathlon squads are currently on hold over winter.

We work with the Kāpiti Running & Tri Club and our squads are heavily discounted for members of the club.  Our squads are also free (i.e. included in the monthly fee) for athletes on the FSA Coaching plan.

All our squads are Pay As You Go (PAYG), so you don’t need to worry about missing the odd session when you’re on holiday, off racing or (heaven forbid) out injured.
