Ottawa International Kids of Steel Triathlon will be host to Triathlon Ontario’s Youth Cup Series event.

Triathlon Ontario Youth Cup Series

The Ontario Youth Cup Series is an integral part of the Provincial Development Program.  The objective of the Series is to provide Youth athletes (aged 14-15) primarily a draft legal competitive race environment within the Province.  It is Triathlon Ontario’s belief that developing a strong Provincial race series is imperative to developing a system that encourages increased participation, skill development, club growth and a higher level of investment in the sport.  A series that encompasses draft legal events allows athletes to develop the experience needed to appreciate the complexities and competitive nature of this style of racing and prepare the athletes for Junior draft legal racing.

The objective of the non-draft legal 12-13 age group race series is to introduce Youth to a competitive race series environment with officials to help transition from the participation-focused Kids of Steel race experience.
