The Kids Tri Club will meet once a week on Monday’s at 6:30 p.m. starting July 21st at Jamesville Beach. The Kids Tri Club is geared for children ages 7 to 13 and your child must know how to swim and be able to pass an open water swim test before being able to participate. Kids are divided into three different categories depending on what they are most comfortable with; Mini, Sprint & Olympic distances. Kids will learn how to set up a transition area to make for smooth transitions, fuel the body before and after racing, along with other tips. But the best part is that they will have fun while doing all of it.
Coaches this season are Caryl Kinney, Christine Wilbur Brown, Denise Napoli & Renee Williams.
Any questions about the program contact Caryl Kinney at Carylk@twcny.rr.com
At the end of the season we will have an official KIDS TRIATHLON RACE in conjunction with the end of the year CNY Tri Picnic on August 24th at Jamesville Beach. The race is run just like the adults, it has swim waves, t-shirts, race numbers, body marking, swim caps and a medal after crossing the finish line.
Children and parent(s) MUST be current members in order for the child or children to participate in the Kids Tri Club program. You can register under the family membership — see membership page to register. **When registering for family please make sure to check the box on the Active.com registration form that YOU (as the person registering) are a member of the team…then add team members.
Children need to bring their own swim cap, goggles, bike, helmet, running gear, transition towel and a water bottle for the training sessions.
