Every child should have the opportunity to be active and experience the joys of multisport.

Victoria Brumfield, USA Triathlon CEO

USA Triathlon aims to grow youth triathlon and multisport by introducing the sport of triathlon in schools and community centers, as well as connecting students to triathlon coaches, clubs, and races. USA Kids Tri is a grassroots youth program in select target markets with the goal of introducing youth to triathlon/multisport and help them live more healthy and active lifestyles. 

The tenets of USA Kids Tri include learning, developing skills, competing and building community, and the multisport fundamentals of health and wellness education are built around the American Development Model (ADM).

The USA Kids Tri national youth program includes four important elements that introduce multisport in an established setting and format, elevate community connections to provide best-in-class resources, bolster existing race formats with proven records of success and enable kids from low-to-moderate income households  engage with the sport in a way that works for them and their families.

USA Kids Tri will host a culminating event for athletes to put their multisport skills to the test.  All students participating in the event will receive a USA Triathlon Youth Annual Membership for FREE! Athletes will have the opportunity to race against their friends and classmates in multiple multisport race formats. Whether racing in a full triathlon or creating a 3 person relay team, the event will give every kid the opportunity to race.

USA Kids Tri will support 3-5 pilot programs across the country in 2023, each with a different model.

Creating more consistent opportunities for kids to engage in triathlon and multisport by practicing and participating with their friends will lead to the fun-filled unforgettable moments that stay with them for a lifetime.
