Race4Chase Kids’ Tri Program
Race4Chase Kid’s Triathlon Program(PROGRAM SITES and Application Process for Each Sites Here)
Chase Kowalski loved to run, taught himself to swim and spent much of his afternoons on his bike racing over his course in his backyard when the weather cooperated. At six years of age, he asked his parents to find him a triathlon to compete in. He successfully completed his first triathlon and won his age group! He was very proud of his accomplishment sharing his success with friends and teachers and taking great care not to wash off his race number marked on his arms. It is only fitting that CMAK would support a program to give other children the same opportunity to train and complete this challenging race and honor Chase at the same time.
The Race4Chase Kid’s Triathlon program is a youth triathlon program aimed to provide kids aged 6 to 12 with a safe, healthy non-competitive environment to discover the sport of triathlon. It bring 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 six week goal oriented summer program, the program provides kids with expert instruction in swimming, cycling, running, strength training and flexibility, and also teaches them the fundamentals of good nutrition, under the supportive guidance of coaches, lifeguards and instructors. Implementing a custom-designed training program, the coaches provide the youth athletes with all the equipment, knowledge, and one-on-one support they need to become tri-athletes. At the culmination of the training camp, all the youth athletes come together to compete in a USAT-sanctioned triathlon race.
