Fun learning environment where kids are introduced to or develop new skills in the wonderful world of multi-sport! Being active helps kids learn valuable skills for sport, and life. Movement also helps the mind rest and release stress, as well as activate the brain in different ways.

Anyone wishing to be on the TVTC Kids Racing Group needs to have the following qualifications:

  • Ages 8 - 18
  • Have completed at least one session in the TVTC Kids Skills Development Group
  • Have an attitude of inclusion. You are only as good as the people around you.

To get better you have to practice. We require youth triathletes in the TVTC Kids Racing Group to commit to 5-week sessions, and have a 90% attendance rate.


A good triathlete trains hard. A great triathlete trains smart. A great triathlete is always learning, and applying those lessons to his or her racing. We continue to learn new skills, and build those skills into our training and racing through each practice, session, season, and triathlon career.


Register for 3 week or 5 week sessions that work for you! We'll place each child in the group most appropriate based on experience, incoming skills, and coach's assessment.
