Triathlons & Challenges

Tri for God

This summer program focuses on developing triathlon skills in our youth, while growing in faith, friendships, and fun. We provide an avenue in which young people can create a lifestyle that is both physically and spiritually grounded in the word of God. Participants need to bring their bike, helmet, swimsuit, and running shoes. If kids do not have a bike or helmet due to financial constraints, we can provide assistance. 


Swim Across Kansas

We keep track of your laps as you swim the length of Kansas from Kanorado to Kansas City. Total distance=30,024 lengths (15,012 laps). Every time you come into the Y to swim, tell the lifeguard how many lengths you swam that day and we will keep you  updated on your distance traveled every month on a poster displayed for everyone to see! To mark some of your milestones, we will be giving away gifts when you reach certain famous distances. After swimming the distance of the English Channel (1512 lengths) you will be rewarded with a medal engraved with, “I swam the English Chanel (at the Y)!” Once you reach all the way across the state, we will commemorate your feat with a t-shirt to show off.  Fees are $25 for members and $50 for program participants.
