Following the philosophy of development in youth triathletes promoted by ITU sport development, the Guatemalan Triathlon Federation is in the process of developing a program called Educative Program 3D.  Under the leadership of their federation president, Dr. Mario Rodriguez Gutierrez (ITU Executive Board Member), the initiative is based on the concepts of Diversion, Dedication and Discipline.

The program has two major goals. Firstly, it goes to the different schools of Guatemala City plus the eight different cities where triathlon is organized and offers talks and forums about the sport. The discussions are targeted towards youth between the ages of 7 and 15 years old and outline the basics of triathlon to a total of 20,000 students from more than 22 educational institutions. To date the program has visited five schools totaling more than 3,000 students.

The second goal is to organize five inter schools triathlons attracting an average of 100 triathletes per competition. The first competition on March 10th, 2007 brought 52 participants from 17 different schools. The event planned on March 25th will be the second inter-schools competition and for the first time in Guatemala it will include a relay for youth triathletes (12 to 17 years old) apart from the individual categories between 7 and 15 years old.

With these kinds of programs the Guatemalan Triathlon Federation looks to increase the popularity of this sport in Guatemala and create an atmosphere of healthy body, mind and soul in our children.
