RACE 4 CHASE Youth Triathlon Program
The Race 4 Chase program is a youth triathlon program focused on providing kids ages 6 through 12 with a safe, healthy, non-competitive environment to discover the sport of triathlon. It brings together kids from all different backgrounds and educates them on how to adopt a healthy lifestyle, coaches them to develop a foundation of athletic skills, and inspires them to aim high in sports and in life. Through our collaboration with the Greater Waterbury YMCA and the Chase Michael Anthony Kowalski Foundation, the Westport Weston Family YMCA is proud to have been selected to offer this wonderful program in 2016 and again in 2017 to honor the life of Chase Michael Anthony Kowalski. Chase was a first-grader who lost his life at the Sandy Hook tragedy of 2012 and loved the sport of triathlon, winning the first youth triathlon he ever attempted.
The Westport Weston Family YMCA Race 4 Chase Team practices daily at the YMCA from 8:30-12:00 using the indoor pool and Camp Mahackeno space to strengthen their skills in swimming, biking and running. Participants will also enjoy games to strengthen us as a team as well as learn about nutrition and taking care of our bodies.
The registration process includes submitting an application by April 13th, and then if selected, completing a registration form that will be sent later in April.
