Objective

To get children active & excited about running. Encourage TVFR members and their families to hit the track together. The goal is fun!! The plan is to create an array of speed drills & intervals geared for kids. We will work on speed and agility with the focus of challenging and inspiring kids.

Programmatic Structure

Children will be grouped in regards to age: 4-6,7-9, 10-12.  We will have coaches for each age bracket, two each for the 2 younger groups.  The activities of each group will vary.

We will begin by all doing some fun dynamic stretching activities and then part into our 3 groups.  The entire program will be set up ahead of time.  The program will be 45 minutes in duration except for week 1 where it will run for an hour.

Types of workouts will be short speed drills with some cone running, baton relays and possible obstacle course.  Chris Kivior and Tom Ronan will design age appropriate workouts.
