Welcome to your guide to youth and junior triathlon. Whether you’re a parent, coach or athlete, you’ll find the resources you need to be successful in multisport right here, including the latest training tips for kids, tools to find a coach, club or race and exclusive youth benefits and programs.

In 2016, USA Triathlon had nearly 40,000 annual youth members, age 17 and younger. Race directors across the country offered over 700 sanctioned races for youth. That’s a lot of athletes practicing healthy exercise habits that will last a lifetime, and a lot of opportunity to have fun racing. With a renewed focus on expanding outreach and engagement efforts to increase youth participation, USA Triathlon hopes to grow that number to 100,000 youth members by 2020.

Whether you’re just getting your start in multisport or have been racing in youth events for years, we wish you the best of luck on your multisport journey. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Email Youth Program Manager Meg Duncan at meg.duncan@usatriathlon.org
