Through an 8-week training program on the campus of CSM, girls, ages, 8-14, learn the three disciplines of triathlon: swimming, biking and running. Girls learn to honor their self and others, the importance of teamwork and to be kind. To assure there are no barriers to participation, all equipment required to complete a triathlon are provided free to the athletes. No experience is required.
