The Valley Shore YMCA is a proud Race 4 Chase Youth Triathlon training site!  

Chase Kowalski was amazing child from Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut who loved to run. To honor his legacy, The Race 4 Chase Triathlon Program was created to provide youth with a fun, life-changing experience by introducing them to the sport of triathlon.

Our 6 week youth triathlon program is aimed to provide kids aged 6-12 with a safe, healthy and non-competitive environment as they train to compete in an outdoor triathlon on August 3rd in Southington. It brings together kids from a variety of experience levels and educates them on how to adopt a healthy lifestyle, coaches them to develop a foundation of athletic skills an inspires them to aim high in sports and in life.

Beginning on Monday, June 24 2019 Race4Chase will run Monday-Friday – 3.25 hours per day – 9am-12:315pm.  There is a very limited number of participants spots available.  In order to be considered for the 2019 summer, please submit a program application.  Families will be notified of acceptance into the program the week of April 22nd 2019.
