Announcing the Chattanooga Tri Club Training for Kids — aka Chattanooga TCTK, or “Tick-Tock!” — to be held at the Hamilton YMCA on Sunday, June 7, from 9 a.m. to noon. (Check-in and bike inspections 8 to 9 a.m.)
TO REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT: TCTK.edgereg.com
Children aged 6-14 in three or four groups of 15 will complete a three-hour training course. Each group will have their own coach, assistant and volunteers, rotating through six stations: race preparation, swim skills, bike skills, run skills, T1 and T2 transition practice (plus, of course, a snack break!) Sessions will focus on race-specific skills such as changing pool lanes mid-race, securing helmets and shoes quickly and riding in a group.
Two USAT-certified coaches will provide the curriculum. A certified lifeguard will verify that each participant must pass the swim test (required). Parents can look forward to a professional atmosphere to welcome them and their children.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! To volunteer for this event, please contact Lorraine Hurley or Noel Reagan at President@ChattTri.com, subject line “Youth.” We are also still looking for one coach and assistant for the fourth group. We need your help to provide a safe, quality event…and it’s going to be a blast!!
