Youth Recreational Program

This is our core program for youth. We offer a family-oriented experience for all ages with a focus on elementary aged and younger kids. Parents and family members are encouraged to run together with the kids. This program relies on volunteers (usually family members) in order to keep the costs at a minimum, and has a real community vibe to it. Runners are divided into groups of around 10 with at least two volunteer coaches with each group. Family members do need to stick around, so you might as well run with us :).  

A typical 45 minute session usually looks like:

Warm-up Tag Game (toilet tag, zombie tag, etc.)

Big Circle Warm-up (active stretches)

Running Skill Focus (working on starts, acceleration, relay, and other physical literacy skills in a games based format)

Trail Run (a fun run through the trails in Odell)

Big Circle Cooldown (cooldown stretches and team cheer)

or if weather if not great for field activities, we would just hit the trails rain or shine.

Cost per 6-8 week session: $20 + once a year $5 ANB fee 

Time: 6:00pm-6:45pm

Location:  Tuesday Group: New Maryland Elementary School Thursday Groups: Odell Park (Bottom of Odell)

Maximum Cap: 80 on Tuesday, 80 on Thursday (based on volunteers of course)
