About This Activity

A 2 hour lecture presentation providing an overview of the logistics, infrastructure and necessary knowledge required to start and develop a successful youth and juniors triathlon program. Topics include facility selection, finances and budgeting, risk management, USAT certification and club programs, program goals and curriculum, developing rules and expectations, age-appropriate athlete development, sponsorship, website development, marketing, coach selection and training, and more. The goal for this clinic is to provide current and prospective program owners with thorough "checklists" to facilitate the creation and evolution of sound youth and junior programming that is beneficial to the athletes, the families, the coaches, and the sport.

The program included over 100 fully active athletes in 2014, and worked with over 1,000 more through clinics, camps and school programs during that same year. Team Playtri has been the top-ranked USAT development team in the North Texas area since 2012.
