THE HIGH SCHOOL TRICLUB
is a certified 501c3 non profit organization...
Our mission as a non-profit organization is to assist High School kids in living a healthy lifestyle for the rest of their lives.
We do Triathlons not to compete against others; rather for the camaraderie of training, feeling better, and feeling fulfilled by crossing the finish line.
Bill was a competitive swimmer in high school and college (BS Electrical Engineering from Washington University). He has continued to coach all levels of swimming, has been a stroke judge, and has taught lifeguard classes. Bill became involved with the HSTriClub while his children were a part of the club in their high school years, and has continued to coach within the club even though both of his children have now graduated from college. Besides being the main swim coach for the HSTriClub, Bill also runs the Masters Swim program at the YMCA. He believes the HSTriClub is a wonderful program.
Fun Fact: Bill is still an active swimmer and an occasional triathlete.

As a social scientist, parent, and sports enthusiast,
William Marsiglio champions the virtues of an emerging
sport, a slice of American sports culture—youth triathlon.
Kids Who Tri systematically explores the links between
youth triathlon, models of youth sports, and
childrearing/coaching philosophies, while offering
readers an insider’s view of the dynamic youth triathlon
community. Drawing on interviews with parents,
coaches, race directors, USA Triathlon staff, and young
triathletes, as well as more than six years of intensive
personal observations as “a tri-dad,” Marsiglio shows
how embracing the multisport spirit teaches youth seven
key life lessons while empowering them.
