Women For Tri provides grants for tri clubs in US, Australia, NZ & China

IRONMAN Foundation - Women for Tri

Women For Tri, a program of the IRONMAN Foundation, has announced the distribution of grants to 28 triathlon clubs in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and China. This year, Women For Tri will again offer multiple grants of up to US$2,500 per grant for triathlon clubs that will utilize the funds to support women’s engagement initiatives, including bringing first-timers into the sport. Since the program’s inception in 2016 more than US$248,000 has been awarded.

“On behalf of Women For Tri, we are delighted to disburse the next round of grants and to continue to grow the triathlon club grant program globally,” said Kyrsten Sinema, US Representative, Arizona – 9th Congressional District and head of the Women For Tri Committee of Advisors. “Women For Tri seeks to increase women’s participation in the sport of triathlon, and we have seen our club grants introduce hundreds of women to the sport we all love.

“We are particularly excited to see women ‘growing’ within the sport, starting with the sprint distance and moving up to longer distances.”

Women For Tri 2018 Triathlon Club Grant Program
The Triathlon Club Grant Program was established to support local triathlon clubs as they develop programming and activities to increase female participation in triathlon. Benefiting clubs will utilize funds to provide: specific training for female triathletes with a focus on removing barriers to participation; educational programs for female triathletes; and networking and social gatherings with a focus on recruiting and engaging women to participate in triathlon. A second round of funding will be awarded later this season.
