Spring 2018 Boca Raton Youth Running and Triathlon Program
March 14 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
The Boca Raton Youth running and triathlon program will allow your child to have the opportunity to practice swimming, biking and running with other children their age, and coaches that are experts in the field and well known in the community.
We will start out each session with a warm-up and stretch. We will focus on various techniques and skills throughout the program. Children will be split up into beginner, intermediate and advanced groups, where coaches will work to help tailor their individual needs, as well as teach them sportsmanship within a group setting.
On running days we will be using the I’m Possible Curriculum, that will teach eight principles of empowerment through running games and drills for a unique combination of physical health and strength of character. This is an AMAZING opportunity to get involved with youth running and triathlon training while having fun and being surrounded by other kids!
The spring program will start on March 5th. We have a 4-week (March), 8-week (March – April) and 12-week option (March-May 23rd).
We will have practice three times a week: Monday (swim) 4:00 – 5:00 PM, Tuesday (run) 4:30 – 5:30 PM, Wednesday (bike) 4:30 – 5:30 PM.
The triathlon team will participate in 4 races: Youth Splash and Dash Race (March 24), The Boca Raton Youth Triathlon (April 15), The Run from the Rays 5k (April 22) and Memorial Day 5k (May 28). The running team will participate in two races: The Run from the Rays 5k and Memorial Day 5k.
