STRIVE is a friendly, energetic community of youth, ages 7 to 17, that come together to learn and participate in the sport of triathlon. There are a variety of activities and programs designed to promote healthy living and increase leadership skills.

Our mission is to inspire and empower youth of all backgrounds and abilities to STRIVE for a healthier lifestyle, while instilling values, discipline, and confidence for personal and interpersonal growth. With this experience, we hope to establish the correlation for kids between endurance in sports and being disciplined and successful in other areas of life.
