Houston Texans Kids Triathlon Recap
Kids Training for a Healthy Lifestyle
The YMCA is proud to be a partner with the Houston Texans and Texas Children's Hospital for the Houston Texans Kids Triathlon. This was our seventh year participating in this exciting partnership! The event was held on April 21 and 22 with more than 2,300 participants.
We offered a training program for 623 of the registered participants, ages 6-15. Training was delivered by experienced coaches in the form of a one day clinic or a weekly session for five weeks which included an introduction to triathlons and the disciplines of swimming, biking and running.
On both days, the YMCA provided 48 lifeguards to guard the pool during the swim portion of the event.
This partnership and program provides an ideal match for our initiative in preventing childhood obesity.
A huge THANKS! to everyone who volunteered, participated or attended!
