KidzTri3 events are sanctioned by USA Triathlon. As a sanctioned event, we must adhere to USA Triathlon’s Competitive Rules, including age group classifications. The race distance each athlete completes is based on their actual age on December 31, 2018. This age is used to place them in the appropriate age group on race day. As an example, athletes turning 11 this year, whether their birthday is in March or in December, will be placed in the 11-12 age group.
No swim aids or training wheels are permitted on this race course. PLEASE ENSURE YOUR CHILD IS ABLE TO SWIM THE COURSE DISTANCE FOR THEIR AGE GROUP. THIS SWIM IS IN A 50 METER OLYMPIC INDOOR POOL SO THERE IS A DEEP END THAT IS 12′. IF YOUR CHILD IS NOT READY TO SWIM IN A POOL THAT DEEP, PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THEM IN THIS EVENT. WE WANT EVERY CHILD TO HAVE AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE AT OUR EVENTS AND NOT BE SCARED OF THE DEPTH OF THE POOL.
PARENTS ~ MUST READ!
All racers will participate in their proper age group. Our system automatically puts them into the correct age group during registration. Birth certificates or passports will be required during check-in to ensure your child is in the correct age group. It’s unfortunate we need to take this step, but it’s for the safety of your child and all the other children participating.
