About Tri Gladiators
The Tri Gladiators Youth and Junior Team is designed to serve both beginner and seasoned triathletes. Our program welcomes athletes between the ages of 7-18 and is split into two groups: Elite and Development. The Elite group is provided with structured, individualized training. This group is ideal for athletes who hope to compete at the USAT Junior Elite, Collegiate or Professional level. The Development group is more geared towards athletes looking to learn the fundamentals of the sport, improve overall fitness, and enjoy team camaraderie. The only requirements to join our Development group include: being able to swim 25 meters without stopping and knowing how to ride a bike without training wheels. Both groups are encouraged to participate in the same team races.
Our main goal is to provide your child a safe and fun environment to develop their skills and interest for the sport of triathlon, no matter their level. An emphasis will be placed on developing skills in all three disciplines (swimming, biking, and running) and combining them to race a triathlon. Additionally, team workouts will also focus on strength training and transitions. We look to use a fun and supportive team atmosphere to promote developing respect for fellow athletes, responsibility, and a strong work ethic to carry over into other areas of life. No matter your child’s current level of fitness, our program is one that will allow them to grow and gain an appreciation for the sport of triathlon that will last a lifetime!
