Founded in 1992, Tri-Masters is a not-for-profit organization that empowers at-risk children via triathlon in order to teach life lessons. As our youth athletes learn to swim, bike and run, they gain skills in goal-setting, conflict resolution, respect, responsibility, self-discipline and perseverance.
The program was an opportunity to create a safe haven for children who are economically disadvantaged, have witnessed community violence, and may live in environments replete with alcohol and illicit drugs. The program teaches youth that their accomplishments are limited only by their dreams and perseverance.
The greatest reason for this program’s uniqueness is that it has shown more than 1,500 inner-city youth that the world is full of opportunities if you persevere and prepare. The program’s motto is “Tri and you can master anything in life.” Nowhere is this more evident than in the eyes of the program’s youth.
Tri-Masters has always relied on the interest and support of the triathlon community including, fellow athletes, corporate sponsorships, in-kind services and products, and individual contributors.
Remember training for your first event then actually competing in it. Now remember the great feeling of accomplishment when you crossed the finish line. Here are some of the many items that a well-run, effective program requires to get the young triathletes across the finish line.
