The program was established by Triathlon Canada to introduce kids to the sport. Their most famous graduate is Olympic gold and silver medalist, Simon Whitfield.

The Strathcona Triathlon Club, and the City of Campbell River Recreation Department are offering a four-evening program for $10, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.

Kids will learn about safe cycling, proper helmet fit, nutrition and activity and how to transition from one set of gears to another (swim to bike, then bike to run).

The program is open to kids aged five to 12 and runs April 25 to May 16 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Sportsplex each night.

Sign up in advance at either the Sportsplex or the Community Centre, or call (250) 923-7911.
