Plot Synopsis

Each year since 2012, Disney XD has presented DISNEY TRYATHLON, an annual special in which viewers team with athletes and Disney stars to compete in challenges that test their skills and teamwork. DISNEY TRYATHLON is part of Disney XD's "TRYit" initiative, which is designed to inspire kids to get up, get outside, and try something new. In 2012, Disney XD aired TRYATHLON as a one-time special with three teams: Team KICKIN' IT, with stars Leo Howard & Olivia Holt and Texas viewer Nick Carew, coached by NFL player Arian Foster; Team LAB RATS, with stars Billy Unger & Spencer Boldman and Oregon viewer Jenna Hoiland, coached by WNBA player Candace Parker; and Team PAIR OF KINGS, with stars Doc Shaw & Adam Hicks and Georgia viewer St. Clair Duberry, coached by NBA player Kevin Love. In 2013, Disney XD expanded the event, showing a two-part special at 9pm ET/PT on consecutive Mondays, August 12 and August 19, that featured these three teams: Team Bullseye, with stars Calum Worthy & Bradley Steven Perry and kid viewer Javon; Team Spring, with stars Jake Short & Leo Howard and kid viewer Julia; and Team Knockout, with stars Spencer Boldman & Olivia Holt and kid viewer Stephen. Plus, in 2013 NBA superstar Dwight Howard and White House chef Sam Kass each hosted a series of Disney TRYit interstitials that aired on Disney Channel and Disney XD.
