Running Gear

Day 1 sessions offered:
8:30 am - 12:00 pm,
Ages 10-15 Running Camp 

Agenda:

We will start with a quarter mile jog and light stretching.  Kids will learn how to warm up properly and prepare their muscles for activity.  We will understand each kid's goals for the camp and kickoff with some fun drills and activities.  We will discuss key running fundamentals such as running form, gait, efficiencies and proper gear.  Each kid will pick a race they want to learn about and run and we will time them each day and produce analytics at the end of the week.  We will also introduce the use of starting blocks and have them available for practice throughout the week.

Day 4 sessions offered:
8:30 am - 12:00 pm,
Ages 10-15 Running Camp

Agenda:

Today we will focus on bringing together the physical and mental aspects of running and how the body and mind are interconnected.  We will practice visualization of race outcomes and continue with running activities such as "predict the pace" and 4x100m relays while still focusing on individual goals.  We will run reverse ladders as well so the kids can build endurance by running longer distances when fatigued.  We will emphasize pacing again and how to apply that to your race strategies.  We will introduce plyometric drills that will increase speed and explosiveness when running that can be applied to any sport!
