Where is the program held?
The entire program is held on the beautiful campus of College of St. Mary, 7000 Mercy Rd, Omaha, NE. We thank the College of St. Mary for the incredible support of the Ironhawk Juniors Triathlon Club program.
What if my child does not know how to swim or ride a bicycle?
For safety reasons, all participants must have a basic knowledge of how to swim, bike and run. However, IHJ believes that a child’s lack of exposure to a pool or bicycle, or knowledge of how to swim or ride a bike, should not prevent them from participating in the IHJ program.
Before the start of our annual program, IHJ provides an opportunity for parents to register their Junior for swim or bike lessons. Lessons usually last __ weeks and take place at the College of St. Mary. Please reach out to IHJ in February to inquire about lessons for the upcoming program season.
Am I able to donate and/or volunteer for the program?
Absolutely! As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, the Ironhawk Juniors Triathlon Club relies on the generosity of our sponsors, donors and volunteers to make the program a success.
