USA Triathlon is pleased to announce that 30 events from across the United States have been selected to form the USA Triathlon Youth Splash & Dash Aquathlon Series in 2014. Educating youth athletes between the ages 7-15 about the multisport lifestyle is one of the primary objectives of the series, which is focused on participation and having fun, rather than competition.

Our inaugural event is the first of several local Youth Aquathlons and Triathlons. With our race focus on swimming and running this would be a natural first step for our young athletes to ease their way into a summer of safe, fun exercise and Aquathlon/Triathlon competition.

A calendar listing the local youth events we know of is now posted and will be maintained as events become known.

Coming in April we will post a free, simple Youth Aquathlon & Triathlon Training Plan. We will be making regular updates offering training and racing safety tips to the page.

Basic Equipment Needed for the Try Kids Tri Aquathlon:

Volunteers

We will need plenty of volunteers to pull this off. Your help is sincerely appreciated.
