Kids in Triathlon
Kids Fall & Winter Program
The 2020 season sees a return of the Manitoba Summer Games, and we’re looking forward to lots of kids programming and triathlon clinics around the province as we build up to the Games in August. Key among that planning is our Kids Fall & Winter Program.
The program will run from October 16, 2019 to April 29, 2020 on Monday & Wednesday evenings with the following schedule each evening:
Run & Fitness workout from 6:45 – 7:45 pm at Pan Am Pool track
Swim workout from 8:00 – 9:00 pm at Pan Am Pool training tank
Program participants may choose to attend once or twice a week, with options to do both workouts each evening, or just the Run/Fitness workout and skip the swim – whatever fits your child’s weekly schedule.
Pricing was designed to make the program as accessible and affordable as possible. Signing up for the six-month program offers the best value, but month-by-month options offer greater flexibility if needed.
All kids will need to be registered annual members of Triathlon Manitoba to participate, with those memberships available from October onward, as our training season begins.

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.
