Tri With Mom®

Tri With Mom® is a one-of-a-kind program designed for kids and mothers to TRI together! There are numerous studies that support the fact that when mothers practice healthy lifestyle choices - like being active and participating in athletic activities - their kids benefit. The more active a mother, the more active her child(ren).  And the impact is even greater for girls.

This 16-week program is designed for new or recreational triathletes aged 7-16 and their mothers, and is taught exclusively by a USA Triathlon Certified Coach. At the end of the program, the team will participate in a team designated race.

{If you are a mom and interested in training WITHOUT the kids, we have that too. For details on Team SheTRIbe, email coach Kim: kim [at] boompowkidstriclub.com}

This program is a USATriathlon Sanctioned program. USA Triathlon has reviewed and approved our course curriculum and emergency and safety plans, and our coaching staff all hold current USA Triathlon coaching certifications which includes Adult + Pediatric CPR certification, SafeSport certification, and a NCSI background check.
