Race 4 Chase is coming to the YMCA!

Race 4 Chase is coming to the YMCA June 27-August 6!

The Race 4 Chase Youth Triathlon Program is a youth triathlon program aimed to provide kids aged 6-12 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.

Designed as a 6-week, goal-oriented summer program, the program provides kids with expert instruction in swimming, cycling, running, basic strength training, and flexibility, and also teaches the fundamentals of good nutrition, under the supportive guidance of coaches, lifeguards, and instructors.

Implementing a custom-designed training program, the coaches provide the young athletes with virtually all the equipment, all the knowledge, and one-on-one support they need to become triathletes. At the culmination of the training camp, all the young athletes come together to compete in a USAT-sanctioned triathlon race held at YMCA Camp Sloper Outdoor Center in Southington, CT on August 6.

Program Overview:

  • Monday-Friday, 9:00-12:00 pm during a 6-week summer session to train youth in the sport of triathlon.
  • Each program is run by a trained head coach and coaching assistants at a ratio of 1 coach per 8 athletes.
  • Program is free for all participants.

Applications are being accepted now and space is still available! Don’t wait, no more than 35 athletes can be accepted into the program! For more information, contact Alexei Bachuretz, Wellness Director at abachuretz@westporty.org or 203-571-6035.
