RYPE Girls specializes in nurturing young girls’ goals of completing a triathlon by crushing barriers they of inflict on themselves.
As a RYPE Girl, you are led through the training process by a group of mentors, many of whom are triathletes who want to share their inspiration and motivation. They guide and encourage you at members-only swim, cycle and run clinics.
Along the way, you will challenge and better yourself by getting healthy, gaining self-confidence and self-esteem and developing relationships with like minded girls throughout the Queen City community. Each season ends with a celebration of all of our achievements!

One thing I loved when I went into the triathlon organization at 13 was the sisterhood. I had no idea what i signed up for. All I knew was my friends and mom made me do it considering the face that I was dealing with very bad depression. After I joined, I must say I was very pleased. RYPE not only made me feel loved, but taught me how to train correctly in terms of diet, mental mindset, and communication on the road. I am now almost 16 and definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone from ages 12 – 79! Come to RYPE and see what we are all about! Have a blessed day!
