Wondering if your child is ready to try a tri? The Learn to Tri - Training Clinic is a FREE introductory program designed to train youth in the fundamentals of triathlons, so they can participate in the Tuscaloosa Kids Triathlon. The Learn to Tri Kids Clinic will be hosted at Lake Lurleen on Sunday, April 26 at 3 p.m.
At the start of the clinic, the participants will be divided into groups (usually by age). After a brief introduction, the groups will each rotate across 3 different stations. Each rotation lasts for 30 minutes and gives every participant the opportunity to swim, bike, run and practice their transitions. Each transition will end with a Question & Answer session. Parents are welcome to attend.
