This National Alliance for Youth Sports program is a character-building running program that trains kids ages 8-13 to participate in a 5K run.
 Running is a healthy exercise alternative for children that are apprehensive about traditional team sports. In addition to running, the program places an emphasis on life skill development and offers participants an opportunity to learn about and take part in things such as healthy eating habits, positive goal setting, giving back to the community and more! This curriculum-based program equips kids with the physical training and goal-setting mentality needed to accomplish their running goals. Issues like enhancing confidence and self-esteem, respecting authority, dealing with peer pressure and fueling their bodies through proper nutrition are covered during the 12-week program. 

 

This is a 12 week, 24 lesson (2 practices a week) running curriculum.  Tuesday & Thursday 5:30pm - 6:30pm starting June 5th.   Tennis/running shoes required.  More information to come! 

  Coaches! 
Coaches do not need to be able to run a 5k to coach. 

Coach responsibilities: 
  Lead kids in a 12-week, 24-lesson (2 practices per week) running curriculum.
 Communicate with parents before and after lessons to include them in the physical training and character-building curriculum.
 When possible, participate alongside the kids in order to help develop your own physical health and keep them engaged. However, coaches do not need to be able to run a 5k to coach.
 Alert the program coordinator of any issues that may come up with the kids in the program; positive and negative feedback is greatly appreciated!
 Help participants complete a 5k run – either in conjunction with a community scheduled race or by organizing a final run for your group.
