Youth Triathlon

Why TRI? It is a great way to work on conditioning, pacing, mental toughness, healthy eating and competition between self and others. The sport is growing from an elite adult activity to now providing scholarships for college. It may be a individual sport but you will be surprised that in practices with others and at the events they play before and after, support each other during and learn from each others strengths and weaknesses! Then physically they develop coordination & strength with their whole body. With youth there is a recommendation to keep it short and fast as they can improve speed early and adults struggle along with keeping it safe as they tire both physically and mentally much different than adults. TFP has been working with youth for many years. We are excited as 2016 looks to be our largest group!!
