Please join us on Thursday July 20, 2017 at Long Beach in Sag Harbor at 5:00 p.m. to cheer on our 30 Springs Girls who will be participating in the annual i-Tri triathlon!

Students train all year for this event! The girls compete in a 300-yard swim, 7-mile bike ride, and 1.5 mile run. i-Tri is a community-based program that fosters self-respect, personal empowerment, self-confidence, positive body image and healthy lifestyle choices for adolescent girls. The girls even participate in a full practice triathlon before the real event.

Throughout the school year, the girls meet after school and during lunch to participate in nutrition classes, workshops in making healthy choices, and physical fitness. Along their journey to the finish line of a youth distance triathlon, i-Tri girls learn mutual respect, responsibility, teamwork and dedication, while developing strong habits and attitudes which last a lifetime. 

Ten Springs girls who had done the program in the past now serve as mentors to the younger girls. i-Tri started at Springs School with just eight girls in 2010 and this year, the program has worked with over 130 girls from six different school districts!
