If anyone from BWSC is interested in joining/creating a group from the club to volunteer, please email diana@bigwhiteskiclub.com

The SunRype TRi KiDS Triathlon Series is Canada’s only triathlon series just for kids. In 2017 we have 10 races on the calendar and welcome 3 to 15 year olds in a safe, fun, non-competitive race environment that combines swimming, biking and running…three sports kids love. TRi KiDS Okanagan takes place at the H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre in Kelowna on Sunday, July 16th and we are reaching out to community clubs to see if there is an interest in coming together as a group to volunteer at the event.

As we enter our 9th season of TRi KiDS racing we can easily reflect on how fortunate we have been to have groups come out and volunteer for a race. TRi KiDS volunteering is a great way to engage with young athletes, and support and encourage them as they do their best on the race course. As a group, it’s a terrific team-building experience with an honorarium included.

This year we have designed a Volunteer Group Program and we sincerely hope you will join us for TRi KiDS Okanagan on July 16th.

Here are a few of the benefits:

  • Honorarium based on number of volunteers in the group (see below)
  • One point of contact: We will communicate with one member of the group to organize and confirm details
  • We will do our best to assign the group together or to a requested area
  • Draw prizes and gifts
  • Photos taken of the group which will be posted to a dedicated Volunteer page on the TRi KiDS website, TRi KiDS Facebook and Twitter pages acknowledging the group
  • “Spirit of TRi KiDS” program – end of season voting on the best volunteer group
  • Lunch, snacks and drinks provided during the race

Number of Volunteers…………………Honorarium
6 – 9…………………………………………….$125
10 – 15…………………………………………$200
15 – 20………………………………………….$300

We thought it may be fun and a great way to have a group gathering given you’re in your off-season.

We look forward to hearing back from you. We need 25-30 volunteers to make the race as successful as possible! I have also included a poster with more general information.

If group participation is not possible, would you please help us spread the word of our need for volunteers? Individuals interested can register online herehttps://www.trikids.ca/volunteer/
