Registration

Thank you for your interest in the Tallahassee Youth Triathlon Series. Follow the directions below to register for our summer 2014 races and practice clinics. If you’re not ready to register today, stay updated by joining our email list.

PRACTICE CLINICS: By partnering with two local groups – Gulf Winds Triathletes Youth Clinics and Club Seminole – we have been able to schedule six training clinics in spring/summer 2014. Our goal is to help children feel confident on race day, so we require signup (see below), to ensure there are enough coaches on hand. Clinics are held at the FSU Morcom Aquatic Center.

April 27th – Club Seminole Swim Clinic
May 3rd – Club Seminole Swim Clinic
June 7th – Club Seminole Swim Clinic
June 29th – Gulf Winds Triathletes Youth Clinic
July 27th – Gulf Winds Triathletes Youth Clinic
August 24th – Gulf Winds Triathletes Youth Clinic – 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR CLINICS.

Clinic Notes: The Club Seminole Swim Clinics will be swim only with instruction from the coaching staff of Club Seminole. The Gulf Winds Triathletes Youth Clinics will focus on swimming, transitions, and running, and will be taught by award-winning triathletes.  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.

RACE REGISTRATION: Race entry fees directly cover race operation costs for each of the YTS events, including facility rental, our professional timing system, course management, t-shirts, publicity, awards, and the post-race family celebration.  Each participant receives a goody bag with coupons and prizes from our race partners, a Tallahassee YTS t-shirt, and a finisher’s medal or dog tag.  The top three finishers in each age (male and female) will receive a special award.  More information about awards can be found under our RESULTS tab.

BEFORE REGISTERING, please do the following:

1. Ensure you understand USA Triathlon’s Age-Up Rule (i.e. the age of the athlete is determined not by the age on race day but by the age the athlete will be on December 31, 2014.  Click HERE for further explanation, as well as details on having your child race down an age group.

2. Like” us on Facebook to stay updated on the 2014 race schedule, clinics, etc.  And, if you are NOT registering but want to be placed on our email list, please send us your information so we can keep you informed about upcoming race dates/announcements.

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.
