The kids will earn points throughout the summer for attending training sessions, reaching goals, participating in sports and fitness events, and for volunteerism. At the end of the summer, points will be added up and cashed in for incentives such as swim fins, team sweatshirt, goggles, bike gear, and various other items that promote youth being active and healthy. These incentives are made possible by at USA Triathlon grant that we have been fortunate enough to secure annually.
