Committed to Developing Champions in Sport and in Life

Our Annual Youth Triathlon 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 and enhance fitness skills with the larger goal of developing self-esteem, teamwork, goal setting, self-discipline and friendly competition.
