Free Training
Registered participants can sign up for a free training class at the Weekley Y at 3 different times on Sunday afternoons starting 2/21. The Houston Texans YMCA is offering a free training class on Friday nights at 6:00 PM as well. You will need to bring a proof of registration for the Kids Tri and go in-person to the YMCA to register your child. These classes fill quickly since they are offered free of charge.

Please note that the race has historically been a complete sellout prior to the registration deadline; and the
free YMCA training fills up very quickly. If you have any questions, please email Liana Chernysheva at or Lagenia Clark (Team Coordinator for Kids Tri Inc.).
