2018 update to the status of the Youth racing venue. These past 3yrs have been a real struggle to get any type of participation in the OKC geographical and surrounding areas. This venture has been a huge financial struggle for me and this year I am unable to continue this project. Attempting to provide this Youth endeavor has been solely done on my income without any outside sponsors. I will acknowledge that Allegiance Credit Union did provide me with some financial support last year (2017) but it wasn’t enough to offset the expenses that I incurred for the extremely limited interest in the Youth Triathlon/Duathlon.
My hope is that there could be a possibility of providing this for the 2019 racing season.
I am certified by USAT (United States of America Triathlon) as a Youth Race Director.
Certified by USAT as an Adult Race Director.
USAT has made changes to the Youth format for sanctioned races/events. There will no longer be the one-day license fee.
As of January 2016 a Youth Athlete will “have to have” a valid USAT Youth Membership. USAT has lowered the cost to $10/yr.
By having your child registered as a USAT Youth member they would receive the quarterly USAT magazine, which includes an insert specifically designed for Youth!
Your child would also be able to have a ranking classification, just as the adults who are USAT members.
