While running is the core of the program, the kids learn that hard work, discipline, and perseverance lead to success, both at running and in life. These lessons translate directly into their education, self-esteem, confidence, and healthy living.
PR Youth Running offers Spring and Fall after school youth running programs and summer youth running events. Each session begins with self-esteem and confidence-building techniques, games, and ends with running exercises that help build a strong running foundation.
A typical session practice starts with a team building game such as a team agility game. Confidence building is next by teaching the kids to work together and push through adversity. The session ends with distance running where we work on proper running techniques and form. By the end of the session, each kid feels better about themselves, has tools to help them succeed, and become a better runner.
Through PR Youth Running we are
“Building confident youth one step at a time!”
