We train, compete and celebrate our accomplishments as a family. No one ever gets left behind! We are an all-inclusive club welcoming all backgrounds and levels.
UPDATE: COVID-19 - Note from the President - TriLatino 2021 Season
Dear TriLatino Familia,
COVID-19 has changed the way we live, work and interact with one another. As many organizations across the nation evaluate how to proceed we want to reassure our community that your health and wellness continues to be our number one priority. Following State and local guidelines we are continuing in our resolve to offer a safe training environment. Over the past months the board has worked relentlessly with the coaches and it is with great joy that we announce that TriLatino is moving forward with a new hybrid season that will continue into 2021.
Continuing in a hybrid model:
· The Club will continue to offer a combination of virtual and physical social distanced (SD) programs that include Strength, Yoga, Bike and Run. Unfortunately, pool swimming is still not an option as facilities continue to struggle with keeping CDC guidelines and operating with restriction levels.
Virtual Weekly Workouts:
· The club will offer a structured weekly workout that you can perform from the comfort of your home or ideal controlled environment. Virtual training sessions will take place over Zoom.
· To adhere to CDC recommendations for physical distancing we are limiting in-person training sessions to 50% capacity. All individuals comfortable with meeting in-person will be instructed by coaches to maintain and adhere to social distancing. This will apply to a physical outdoor run and physical outdoor bike sessions. In some cases the coach will also have the ability to structure various waves to limit the number of individuals gathering at one time.
· All individuals attending any in-person training sessions will be required to wear a facial covering over their nose and mouth and maintain a 6-ft clearance. The CDC recommends the use of facial coverings to slow the spread of the virus and prevent transmission.
TriLatino has always prided itself on our human connections and the relationships built through the years as our time together has yielded many memorable and priceless moments. It is for this reason that we will also kindly ask that, while we are in a group setting, that individuals refrain from hugging and/or giving high-fives. A new salute in the form of a shoe touch or elbow touch will be accepted but we ask that all other physical contact be kept to a minimum during practice times.
We continue to ask for your patience as we navigate through this global pandemic and indefinite period of time until the numbers of infections decrease or vaccine has reached the masses. Above all, treat yourself and those around you with compassion as it is critically needed at this time. We are excited to see many of your warm faces and smiles again even in this limited capacity. Should you have any immediate questions, please feel free to reach out to the organization through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Quick update on our Juniors program - our top priority equally is also the safety and well-being of our students, volunteers, partners, staff and the communities we serve. The TriLatino Juniors program for 2020 morphed from a physical training program to one of mental health and home-life support until it can return to a physical outdoor training when the school-year resumes. The juniors committee continues to monitor and follow the directions of the schools and facilities and is in contact with school administrators.
