Everything we do is focused on helping kids experience the benefits of a healthy, active and responsible lifestyle. Triathlon truly is one of the few sports you can play for your entire life, and we want to help kids build these healthy habits at a young age.
Accordingly, every child between the ages of 6 and 15 is eligible to participate (please see below for an explanation of the USATriathlon Age Rules). If anyone within this age range has the interest and desire, we will do everything possible to help them become a triathlete. As a starting point, kids need to be able to swim 4 laps in a pool and ride their bikes (without training wheels) for about 20 minutes. If they can do these two things, they are ready to become triathletes. If they are not ready right now, no worries. We can help them prepare.
Please keep in mind the race distances are set to be challenging, yet achievable. We follow the distances recommended by USATriathlon as follows:
For Juniors (ages 6-10): Swim is 100 yards; Bike is 3 miles; Run is 1/2 mile
For Seniors (ages 11-15): Swim is 200 yards; Bike is 6 miles; Run is 1 mile
To help kids learn and prepare, we offer a wide array of support programs, including:
