The Junior Run Club is open to boys and girls ages 7-12 of all fitness levels. We hope by educating and teaching children proper techniques for running, it will not only develop a lifelong enjoyment of running and exercise, but also help to reduce the risk of injury in later life. Running is a great training complement to children who are already involved in sports such as football, netball or rugby, which requires endurance, speed and agility. Junior Run Club will meet once a week for an hour-long session.
During the sessions, youngsters will spend around 40 minutes actually running, the remaining 20 minutes will be spent on theory and drills. Areas the course will cover include: running technique (stride, body position, breathing practice); the importance of warming up and stretching (theory and practical application); drills to improve speed and endurance, (fartlek training, tempo runs and interval training); theory of muscle activation as well as rest and injury prevention and care.
