Kids in Triathlon
Kids Program and Clinics
As the Province of Manitoba Restart progresses, we look forward to being able to re-start our Kids Program for 8-12 year old athletes.
We’re currently waiting on the City of Winnipeg to confirm the reopening of pools, with the hopes that we’ll be able to once again offer swim opportunities. As the weather continues to warm, we’re also looking ahead to outdoor opportunities with programming focused on bike and run.
Announcements will be sent out through our newsletter and social media as the program restart gets underway.
In the meantime, if you’d like to express your interest in the Kids Program, please let us know.
Thank you for your patience as we work to ensure this program can be restarted safely.
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.
