Back to School Splash & Dash


We are very excited to bring back again in 2018 the 5th Annual Back to School USA Triathlon Splash and Dash Youth Aquathon.  This event will be held at the gorgeous swim team pool located on Flewellen Oaks at Cross Creek Ranch.  This pool has 8 lanes and a large pool deck which allows plenty of space for spectators to view their athletes.  I hope you will join us for this great event.

Age Groups:

Athletes are placed in age groups by birth year not by age at date of race. Age groups are 7 – 8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13 – 15; awards will be given to the top three girls and boys in each age group.


Registration is open at The Driven/Splash & Dash

  • $30 Registration Fee
  • $35 Registration Fee at packet pick up

This is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event, so a USA Triathlon membership will be required by each athlete participating.  If you do not have a membership you can purchase one when you register or at packet pick up.  An annual membership for 17 and under is $15.  This is in addition to your event registration fee. For more information please visit

Packet Pick-up:

Thursday, August 16th        Noon to 6pm, Fleet Feet , 6590 Woodway, Houston, 77057

Friday, August 17th             Noon to 5, Handlebar Cyclery, 26440 FM1093 #A100, Richmond,

In 2018 we have added “Day Of” packet pick up for the first 60 athletes for an additional $10. You will still need your license and you can still only pick up your packet.  There are no refunds, but you may transfer your entry to another event if you notify Tina Whiteford prior to packet pick up starting; however, you can not transfer your entry to another athlete.  This event will take place rain or shine.  Course and/or race segments may be altered based on safety first and if this happens refunds will not be issued.


This is a chip timed event; all splits will be included with transitions.  Occasionally a split is missed due to a misread or improper chip placement.  We apologize now if this happens. Chips will be given out at packet pick up and will be a long black foam strap; instructions are located on our website. Timing by Start2Finish.


Every athlete will receive a finisher’s medal, t-shirt (you are guaranteed a shirt if you are registered before we order the shirts) and other items. Trophies will be given to the top three girls and boys in each age grouping.


Photos of the athletes and event wil be taken by Spring Action Photo.
