We are a laid-back youth-focused triathlon club serving kids aged 10-15 in and around the Washington, D.C. area. Kids have the opportunity to participate in up to 6 multi-sports events per year with the team and can get race-specific training for other races.
Although triathlon is an individual sport, members of the team benefit from encouragement and support from their teammates at races. Triathlons and other community races take a lot of effort to produce so we also volunteer at races or community events our team is not competing in to promote an understanding of the hard work and dedication involved in executing single and multi-sport events.
Group training starts in late April and continues through mid-September with two workouts per week, one on Tuesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and one on Saturdays from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at locations in NW, DC and Bethesda with the goal that most athletes attend at least one workout per week. In addition, there will be a few breaks/non workout weeks during the summer. Weekly workout info will be distributed every Thursday during the season, and athletes will have the opportunity to update their availability for workouts.
We encourage triathletes to train at home as well as at group training sessions. Coach will make suggestions on individual training. In addition, athletes can participate in our running group on Runkeeper or other activities at home like doing push ups and sit ups.
