The Kids Triathlon Club is a great way to promote a lifelong passion for physical activity. With three fun sports- swimming, biking and running, triathlons offer kids the chance to learn a variety of exercise skills while gearing up for the big event! We look to enhance fitness skills with the larger goal of developing self-esteem, teamwork, goal setting, self-discipline and friendly competition. This Youth Program will be both an introduction to sport for beginners and a challenge for the serious competitor. The Kids Triathlon Club will strive to create a healthy and safe environment for kids to learn, laugh, and grow.
