DEB PETERS APPOINTED NEW USA TRIATHLON FLORIDA REGION YOUTH COORDINATOR
Orlando, FL – July 18, 2016: The USAT Florida Regional Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Deb Peters to the position of Florida Region Youth Coordinator.
Hector Torres, the USAT Florida Region President says, “We are excited about Deb taking on the position as the new Youth Coordinator. She will be educating and empowering youth and their families throughout the state about the benefits of a multi-sport lifestyle.”
Deb is eager to share her initiative towards youth programming for the Florida Region. “I am excited to have been appointed the new Florida Region Youth Coordinator. When I started my fitness career, I knew I wanted to focus on family fitness, not knowing then that triathlon would be the way I would do that. I participated in my first triathlon at the age of 47 and was hooked. I quickly incorporated triathlons as part of my toolbox to help people get in shape. In 2014, I took my passion for the sport to the younger generation, and have been showing children how being active can be fun and exciting. Not only are these kids learning a sport that can last them a lifetime, they are learning some core life values. Swim, bike, run are the basics of triathlon, but through the sport, commitment, discipline, adversity and dedication are also learned. The outcome is a confident, healthy child that will always remember crossing the finish line for the first time! I am passionately dedicated to growing youth triathlon in our Florida Region.”
At the end of July, Deb will be representing the Florida Region at the 2016 Youth Nationals in West Chester, Ohio. She will be on hand throughout the weekend and act as the liaison for the Florida athletes. Deb will be there to answer any questions and to help facilitate this amazing experience for all the Florida athletes and their families.
