On Sunday September 20th, Urban Perform’s team of triathletes ended their season with a very impressive triathlon! The Tri-Kids competed the swim section of the race in a lake at Race Rome. Though the athletes had been practicing in a pool all season, each and every student got in the lake and completed their swim. While some students jumped right into this new challenge, others dipped their toes in, mustered up their confidence and cautiously entered the lake to begin a very courageous swim. Each student came out of the lake confident and excited after conquering the swim. Going on to the bike and run was a breeze compared to the challenge of the swim, but it was made even more fun by the camaraderie and cheers of their teammates. As each athlete raced towards the finish line, shouts of encouragement were heard from teammates, coaches and family members. Not only did each team member complete the race, but seven students placed in their respective age group, representing the Urban Perform Tri-Kids team with pride and joy!
A special thanks goes out towards the amazing coaches and volunteers who selflessly commit to six weeks of teaching students how to swim, ride a bike and improve their running, while also instilling a practical knowledge of teamwork, self respect and dedication. After five seasons Urban Perform cannot help but to become more and more grateful for this partnership with Tri-Kids, giving students in our neighborhood the chance to become athletes.

After 6 weeks of training, the Tri-Kids fought hard to complete another triathlon. While there were many struggles along the course on Saturday May 16th, the camaraderie and teamwork led to the ultimate success of all 15 students. Though the swim was the most challenging portion of the race, not one student gave up. The companionship between the team became evident when the students crossed the finish line, because they all then turned back to cheer for their teammates and friends!
One student in particular, Monica*, proved to have immense determination as she persevered through the race. Monica panicked in the pool, but completed the swim. As she moved on to the bike section, Monica went the wrong way, and almost tried to quit. With the support of coaches and teammates, she finished the bike section and the run. Afterwards, both Monica and her teammates were proud of her persistent attitude that led her to a successful completion of the race!
Thanks to the training and preparation through out the season, led by David Dashiell and numerous assistant coaches, all the students persevered to the completion of the race. After four successful seasons with Tri-Kids, Urban Perform sends out a huge thank you to the volunteers, coaches and parents for their loyal support and enthusiasm for these students!
