Fun to 5K!

June 11 @ 11:00 am August 3 @ 12:30 pm

No matter what sport your young athlete loves to play, it likely involves running; and running coaches Jeff Dickman (Head Coach Rockford Cross Country and Distance Track Coach) and Colleen Prudhomme (Certified Running Coach, Certified Speed and Agility Coach, Certified Personal Trainer) are super excited to share the fun of running with your 4th – 7th grader! Fun to 5K is the perfect way to help your young athlete gain endurance while having fun along the way. Coaches Jeff and Colleen have created workouts that will help your young athlete learn how to train for a long effort such as a 5K. This training also will help your athlete stay stronger for longer in any game they play, whether it be gaining incredible stamina in ice hockey, flying fast on the field in soccer, battling harder for the ball in basketball, or, of course, cruising speedy-like on the cross country course. Of course, we also will sneak in some cool knowledge like what good running form looks like, what kind of muscles are needed to run, how muscles act like energy-producing factories every time we breath, what kind of snacks help lead to speedy success, and, of course, we can’t forget about the importance of relaxing for recovery!
