Our goal is to create a positive learning environment where your child will develop proper form and discipline to improve speed, agility, endurance and performance. They will progress over the season by developing an understanding of the different concepts of cross country and distance running.
Our coaches and staff place an even greater emphasis on good sportsmanship. Our goal is to foster a team environment that will support our youth emotionally and socially and help them build a positive self-image. To this end, TRS Youth Running Club will participate in a competitive cross country race at the end of the season. Competition will also help improve leadership skills and encourage greater participation in school sport programs.
The success of our program is due to the dedication of our young athletes, the commitment of our coaches and the strong participation of our parent volunteers. It’s exciting to watch the children increase their endurance, develop confidence in their abilities, surpass their own expectations, and enjoy the spirit of competition. It is our hope that kids learn to apply the discipline learned through running to their daily lives to accomplish more than they ever thought possible by working hard and striving to be the best they can be.
The program is open to Youth of all ages as long as the child is a willing participant.
