Our program is designed to help develop coordination and athleticism in young kids. No matter what sport your kids are getting ready for, running can get them in great condition and help them become balanced, well-rounded athletes.
We teach the fundamentals using structured practices, form drills, running specific exercises, and running specific plyometrics. We believe in teaching kids to run correctly, being challenged aerobically each practice, and having fun with running games.
Our program is a multi approach. Practice on one day and use those skills during the race on another day.
Practices focus on teamwork, skill building, stretching, and positive encouragement
Fixed Mindset – assumes that intelligence and other qualities, abilities, and talents are fixed traits that cannot be significantly developed.
Growth Mindset – assumes that intelligence and other qualities, abilities, and talents can be developed with effort, learning, and dedication.
We need your help to execute a successful program. Our program runs on help from Parents and Grandparents.

Our program believes every child has the power to improve if they have a positive mindset.
Our program recognizes not every child has an innate ability to be a runner and/or the fastest runner. HOWEVER, every child has the ability to improve their running skills through Growth Mindset thinking.
Our program provides each runner with a Finisher Ribbon. It is a sign of progress over the course of the program, a sign of finishing the race even though it was hard, and a sign of perseverance.
