USA Triathlon aims to grow youth triathlon and multisport by introducing the sport in schools and community centers and by connecting students to triathlon coaches, clubs and races. USA Kids Tri is a grassroots youth program in select target markets with the goal of introducing youth to triathlon/multisport and help them live more healthy and active lifestyles.
The USA Kids Tri national youth program includes four important elements that introduce multisport in an established setting and format, elevate community connections to provide best-in-class resources, bolster existing race formats with proven records of success and enable kids from low-to-moderate income households to engage with the sport in a way that works for them and their families.
USA Kids Tri will host a culminating event for athletes to put their multisport skills to the test. All students participating in the event will receive a free USA Triathlon Youth Annual Membership and will have the opportunity to race against their friends and classmates in multiple multisport race formats.
USA Kids Tri will support 3-5 pilot programs across the country in 2023, each with a different model, and plans to expand into new communities in 2024 and beyond.
