Game On!

Tribuddy is a new program initiative for 2011. The program matches volunteer adult triathletes with youth between the ages of 9-15 to foster a positive and fun triathlon learning experience. The program was launched in the spring as a pilot project and will run through the summer, ending in September.

For the pilot project, 6 volunteers and 6 youth were recruited for participation. They will be meeting once a week for 2-4 hours where the activities are focused on running, swimming and biking. Once a month, they will meet in a group along with the Tribuddy organizers and Greg Kealey, coach of the Bytown Storm to get instruction on key aspects of training for a triathlon."
