About Our Program
Each Training Team prepares together to complete a Tri 4 Schools Event. Here is what you can expect:
- Workouts that incorporate both cardio and strength training elements
- Mindfulness activities and discussions
- Each team will host 8-12 practices with run and bike training depending on the team specific location and calendar
- Three swim lessons are included for teams training for a triathlon. Teams training for the Bike + Run may have optional swim lessons depending sponsorship and pool availability
In the event a practice has to be canceled due to weather, a make-up practice may be scheduled. Make-up availability depends on the team’s specific practice calendar and location and cannot be guaranteed. Our events are held rain or shine, and we do not offer refunds for weather-related delays or cancellations.
All program fees may be fully refunded less a $5 processing fee if a refund is requested prior to the first practice. Refunds due to COVID-19 or other health concerns will be handled on a case-by-case basis. In the case that Tri 4 Schools has to cancel the program due to low enrollment, a full refund will be issued.
Thank you to our incredible partners for supporting the Tri 4 Schools Training Team
