 PURPOSE

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!

Practices
Practices will be held for students in grades 3-5 on Tuesday from 2:45-4:00. Students in grades 1-2 will practice on Wednesday from 2:45-4:00 rain or shine. If it rains, we will do some activities in the gym. When we are outside, there will be several safety stations around the course where parents will be needed to monitor all of the runners. We encourage parents, who can, to come to practice and exercise with their child. We also do station work and need parents to help give encouragement to all runners.

What we do at Practice!

  • Endurance running
  • Interval training
  • Ladder training
  • Hills
  • Station work
  • Fitness stations
  • Running games
  • Speed work
  • Form running

Parent Volunteers

When we have parent help, we can be productive for your child...it takes everyone!! Here are some ways that parents can assist at practice: First Aid, providing water and Gatorade before and after practice, monitors while they are exercising, parents to run with the children, taking pictures, recording times at the races and running errands that may need to done.
