Youth Programs for young triathletes
Human Powered Racing’s youth program has options available to fit the needs of our athletes.
Our junior program is designed for athletes 16-19 years old who are interested in racing competitively. The program schedule matches our adult program but are structured to meet the needs of draft legal sprint distance racing.
HPR Youth Program
The HPR Youth program is open to athletes 8 years of age and up of any skill level. The HPR Youth practices are designed and implemented in accordance with Triathlon Canada’s long term athlete development model and Kids of Steel guidelines. Our emphasis is on age appropriate skill development and training volume in a fun and social atmosphere. Everyone from new to experienced multi-sport athletes are welcome in our program. Pre-requisites are the ability to swim 50m continuously and be able to cycle safely on public roads.
For the 2023 season our HPR Youth Team program will start on January 7th and run until June 24th. We practice out of the Esquimalt Recreation Centre. Practices are held season long on Saturdays from 2:30 to 5 pm.
The fee for our Saturday team practices is $110 per month or $630 for the season + GST.
Registration fees include all coached work-outs, access to the athletes only areas on our website, and a Human Powered Racing welcome package.
