Race4Chase

At the Southington-Cheshire YMCAs, we offer a FREE, six-week triathlon training program to kids in both towns called the Race4Chase Kid’s Triathlon Training Program.  This program, which was created by the Kowalski Family in memory of their son Chase, who was tragically killed at Sandy Hook, is designed to bring to children the same opportunity their son Chase had.  He LOVED triathlon and won his first race at the tender age of 6!

The Race4Chase Kid’s Triathlon provides kids ages 6-12 with a safe, healthy, non-competitive environment to discover the sport!  It brings together kids of all different backgrounds and educates them about how to adopt a healthy lifestyle, coaches them to develop a foundation of athletic skills and inspires them to aim high in sports and in life!

  • Enjoy working with kids and don’t mind the heat;
  • Will be helping kids ride bikes, swim and run; and
