The Try-Me Try-Athlon is a Kids of Steel (KOS) Triathlon event. Kids of Steel is the national title for youth triathlon events and programs across Canada. All KOS events follow a similar philosophy emphasizing "sport for all," inclusion and community.
The Try-Me Try-Athlon is a Kids of Steel (KOS) triathlon, designed to offer youth the opportunity to experience the sport of triathlon in a positive environment. The distances are much shorter than those in adult triathlons and change as participants mature.
This event is a district-wide celebration of physical literacy and movement in 2018 using these three skills: swimming, bicycling and running. All children ages 5 and up are welcome to register for this event with the support of their classroom or school-based teacher. The Try-Athlon will encourage students to train with their schools and at home in order to learn new physical skills and movements that will allow them to feel more competent and confident in multiple environments.
