The MINI COW TRI CLUB is the first youth focused USA Triathlon Club in Maryland, encouraging healthy lifestyle choices through multisport with an emphasis on fun! We also race direct a couple of pretty cool youth multisport events. The club is open to children ages 7 to 15 as of December 31, 2013, and while previous multisport experience is not necessary a "Can MOO" attitude is!
In 2013, in addition to our regular team practices and racing in local/regional events, the MINI COW TRI CLUB will be supporting youth triathletes interested in competing at the USA Triathlon Youth National Championship on August 4 in West Chester, OH.
From our new member Triathlete Starter Kit and weekly practices, to discounts on club sponsored clinics, camps and events, there's a barnful of reasons to join the herd!
- New members receive a MINI COW TRI CLUB Triathlete Starter Kit which includes elastic speed laces, and MINI COW TRI CLUB branded bag tag, race belt and transition towel

Membership is open to children ages 7 to 15 as of December 31, 2013. Previous multisport experience is not necessary, but children should be able to swim 50 yards, confidently ride a bike without training wheels, and run for 10 minutes continuously. These athletic prerequisites ensure the safety and enjoyment of our triathletes and coaches. MINI COW TRI CLUB members must be USA Triathlon Youth Members.
