Lavakids Hawai‘i 

Aloha and welcome to the Lavakids® Website.

The youth branch of Lavaman is readying for an explosive expansion.
Lavaman race director Gerry Rott and the LavaKids initiative were recently awarded a grant from the County of Hawaii to work with Parks and Recreation to become a resource for the Big Island’s youth on all sporting activities the island has to offer, as well as expanding LavaKids® and forming more branded events year-round.
“We want kids to take control of their own health. Many kids have become sedentary and unfit, leading to a lack of self-image, among other health issues. “There is a great need for programs that can inspire kids to take their health and fitness into their own hands and motivate them to stay active and reap the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle. Positive self-image will help kids not only through their school years, but their entire lives.”
A primary focus of the program will be to create an easy to access calendar that encompasses all activities available for kids ages 7 to 18. The activities will range from Little League Baseball to youth endurance events.
