Youth Running Program Summer 2020
Youth Running Program is series of sessions that serves to help establish the basics of running for youth athletes. With our team of high school runners, all the kids in the program learn proper running form, breathing technique, and how to pace while running. While at each session, the youth athletes will start each with a warm-up jog and dynamic exercises. Afterwards, they will start the session's activity with a few of the high school runners. To wrap up each session, the youth athletes and high school runners will have a group stretch.
For every session , the activity planned targets certain skill sets of running, whether it be pacing or proper form. In the process of the instruction and activity, the youth athletes will share the experience with each other and run to have fun.
With consideration towards COVID-19, participants will be divided into smaller groups with an instructor for each group and social distancing measures will be taken. Participants should bring a mask to have with them to wear when necessary.
All the athletes involved in the program should bring a water bottle and face covering to each session and apply sunscreen before coming.
