Gulf Winds Triathletes will once again host a series of free practice clinics in 2016. 

All Clinics will be held at the FSU Morcom Aquatics Center from 2:30pm to 4:00pm.  The clinics will be held:

May 14th, July 17th, and August 7th.

The Gulf Winds Triathletes Youth Clinics will focus on swimming, transitions, and running, and will be taught by award-winning triathletes and coaches from Club Seminole.  Admission is FREE, but each participant must be a USA Triathlon member and be able to swim 25 yds unassisted. If your child would like to try a practice clinic before committing to a race, simply purchase a one-day USAT membership. Keep in mind, we also offer FIRST-TIMERS WALKTHROUGHS before each race. These are held the Friday evening before each race date.

Event Cancellation / Modification Policy

 If a natural disaster or dangerous weather occurs, our action steps are as follows:

1. Tallahassee YTS Management in concert with local officials will make decisions based on safety first.

2. Courses and/or race segments will be altered as agreed to between Tallahassee YTS  Management and local officials.

 3. Financial: It is not financially feasible for the Tallahassee YTS to accept the risk of a disaster for everyone. Each registered participant needs to accept the risk of his or her entry fee. There will be NO REFUNDS or free entries to future races. The money you paid is spent developing the subject event.

4. The Tallahassee YTS does not save any money if one of our events has to be canceled for reasons beyond our control. All supplies and services needed for the events are purchased and/or arranged in advance. All event supplies and services associated with that event must be paid for, regardless of the outcome.
