“When I started triathlons in 2001 I was fortunate enough to be able to compete in the super sprint series that was being run in Australia at the time, there was a steep learning curve but one that I am thankful for. The skill set you gain from the fast and furious sprint racing is invaluable, and I am excited that Rev3 is offering these same experiences for juniors as well as the pros.”

Swim Description

All athletes will swim in their own lane. Each heat will begin with athletes in the water with at least one hand on the wall (Elite Development Racers will start from a dive).  An air horn will start each heat.

 

Swim Distances:

  • Athletes Ages 7-9 will swim 100 meters (4 pool lengths).
  • Athletes Ages 10-11 will swim 200 meters (8 pool lengths).
  • Athletes Ages 12+ will swim 250 meters (10 pool lengths).

 

Athletes will need to maintain their own lane while swimming. The Starter will count the laps for the lead swimmer and give him or her an indication with 2 pool-lengths remaining. The remaining athletes however, are responsible for counting their own laps.  If at any time, an athlete becomes uncomfortable in the pool, he or she may rest on the wall, stand, or walk (remaining within that person’s lane).  After the necessary laps are completed, exit the pool, place swim gear in the Athlete Tote, put on biking gear and go!
