Kids in Triathlon
Kids Program and Clinics
Our provincial response level has finally dropped from red to orange, and with that, our Kids Programming can (finally) return!!
Kids Programming will resume with a month-long offering taking place at Birds Hill Park. The program will run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 6:00 to 7:30pm. The program is targeted at youth 8 – 12 years of age (Birth years 2009 – 2013)
Sessions will consist of swimming, cycling & running, with both drills for development and steadier efforts for fitness.
Registration options allow for once or twice a week attendance at our Tuesday and Thursday workouts.
Numbers are restricted, but registration is now open via the link below.
Kids of Steel.
Kids of Steel is a Triathlon Canada program, provincially supported by Triathlon Manitoba. Its mission:
To guide youth development in triathlon and related multi-sport events through the delivery of a standardized program across Canada. The Kids of Steel® program will focus on the encouragement of healthy active living, lifelong participation, safety, fun, the building of skills, and involvement of Canada’s youth.
In support of the KOS program, Triathlon Manitoba hosts an annual Kids of Steel race series for children between 6 and 15 years old as of the calendar year end; as well as a training program. Manitoba Triathlon Centre has programs for 12 years and older as of the calendar year end who wish to develop in triathlon under professional coach supervision.
The KOS race program adheres to a standard set of rules which include age categories, maximum distances, bike regulations, and “no exceptions” on racing in an older category – see the KOS Principles and Rules and related KOS policies.
For the KOS current year race series information on location and registration, see Triathlon Manitoba’s event calendar for the Kids of Steel category.
All Kids of Steel race registrants must:
- Adhere to the Kids of Steel Equipment and Guidelines
- Have a Kids of Steel Triathlon Manitoba Membership
- Have at least one parent or guardian attend the race
To encourage participation, finishers from 6 to 11 years of age as of the calendar year end, will be listed in the results alphabetically with their time in each age group. No placings will be awarded.
