Each summer, kids ages 4-16 from our community have the opportunity to participate in the YMCA Kids Triathlon, and this will be the second year to hold the event at our brand new BHP Billiton YMCA. This event encourages children to discover the fun in fitness and to reach for their goals! At the YMCA of Northwest Louisiana, we believe all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of adults who care about them and believe in their potential.
