Filling out this form does NOT guarntee your child a spot on the team
To promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles, to provide a running enrichment program for children that offers the opportunity to improve running knowledge and skills, to participate in running events, and to meet other students in the school and the community. The program is also designed to build self-esteem by giving children a feeling of success when they finish a race and to challenge them to improve their personal run times for future events!
Note: practicing only once per week will not improve cardiovascular endurance and race performance. It is recommended that your child exercise at least 3-4 times per week to see noticeable differences in fitness and finishing times.
Fall Season is: September-November
Winter: optional training Wednesday morning at 7:20 January-February
Spring Season: March - early May
