Triathlon training for youth
The Riverbrook Regional YMCA will offer the Race-4Chase Triathlon Program this summer for children 6 to 12 years old. The free program will run for six weeks beginning in June and ending on race day in August when the young athletes will compete in a USAT-sanctioned triathlon race at the YMCA Camp Sloper Day Camp and Outdoor Center in Southington. Training will take place at Riverbrook’s Wilton and Norwalk locations.
The Y has received funding to present this program through the CMAK Sandy Hook Memorial Foundation. Race4Chase, a youth Triathlon program founded by Rebecca and Stephen Kowalski’s CMAK (Chase Michael Anthony Kowalski) Foundation, celebrates the life of Chase Kowalski. Chase was an enthusiastic young triathlete and the program was developed to remember his life and spirit through the achievements and experiences of other children in the sport.
Enrollment is limited. Applications will be posted to the Riverbrook Regional YMCA web site in mid-February.
