USA Triathlon is pleased to announce that 30 event sites from across the United States have been selected to form the inaugural USA Triathlon Youth Splash & Dash Aquathlon Series in 2012 and the Greater Marco Family YMCA has been chosen to be one of the 30 sites to offer this event. Educating youth athletes between the ages of 7-15 about the multi-sport lifestyle is one of the primary objectives if the series, which is focused on participation and having fun, rather than competition. “The first ever USA Triathlon Youth Splash and Dash Series is a fantastic way to introduce youth athletes to the benefits of the multisport lifestyle in a fun format.”  USA Triathlon CEO Rob Urbach said. USA Triathlon is a proud member of the International Triathlon Union and the United States Olympic Committee.  The Greater Marco Island Family YMCA will host the Youth Splash and Dash on Sunday, September 16 at the Aquatic Center and other areas of the Marco YMCA facility. Health & Fitness Coordinator Jennifer Bristow stated “This is a great honor to be chosen as one of only 30 sites across the country and be able to introduce multisport to the youth athletes of our community.”  For more information about the Slash & Dash Aquathlon Series please go to: www.usatriathlon.org
