FAQ

What Bike should my child use for training?
For starters bring what you have or use already. Many kids use standard single speed BMX style bikes.

What should they wear for running?
Shorts and t-shirt for warmer weather, shoes should be flexible for athletic activities. We can make recommendations as skill levels change.

What is "Club" versus "Team" training? 
The "Club" training is once a week and design for developing athletes that are building their skills and strength. The "Team" Training is structured training to build strength and endurance for competitive triathlon. Team members are typically racing 1 to 2 times per month in USAT events.
