This free 7-week program provides an amazing opportunity for kids to get ready to compete in their first triathlon! Through a unique partnership with YMCAs across New England, kids across the region are able to get expert instruction and gain the confidence and abilities necessary to become triathletes. The training consists of seven 1-hour sessions that focus on each of the four disciplines of the sport of triathlon: swim, bike, run, and transition.

Once the training is complete, participants can choose to participate in the New England Kids Triathlon at M.I.T. on July 16th. Participation in the triathlon is not required but encouraged.
