Academic Triathlon


Welcome to the Academic Triathlon webpage! Academic Triathlon is an extra-curricular activity for 5-8th graders. We have meets once a month (December-April) after school and practices once a week. As with any triathlon, there are three events involved in Academic Triathlon: mind sprints, face-off, and PARTY in a box. Teams work together to accumulate points in all three areas and all the points are added together to determine team ranks.

Mrs. Klennert and Adam Anderson will be coaching grades 5-8 together this year. The “Challenger” team is made up of 5-6th graders, and “Cross-Trainer” team with 7th and 8th graders. All triathletes will practice together so we can learn from each other’s different ways of thinking.

For more information about Academic Triathlon including rules and guidelines, check out the U.S. Academic Triathlon web page.
