BaseCamp. We are pleased to announce our first youth running group through a joint partnership with the Truro Parks and Rec and Colchester Recreation. This is something we have been talking about for a long time.
This is a no cost program and at the moment will run until school xcountry programs start (we will reassess the first week of September). The intent of this program is to compliment school programs and provide some of the basics and gradually build fitness and knowledge.
The ages are 8 and up to high school.
We will usually meet on Monday and Wednesdays although some evenings will change.
Our first meeting will be on Monday August 17th at 630 in Victoria Park by the bandshell. We are using the first meeting to workout the cobwebs and start with a smaller group.
The registration night will be Wednesday August 19th
Our theme for the evening will be hat or cap night. So find something to put on your head. We will run/walk for 20 minutes for those new and possibly longer for others. It will depend on who shows up. Afterwards we will stop on the grass near the bandshell to stretch.
Parents are certainly welcome to run with their children. If you have any questions or want to volunteer coach please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration Wednesday August 19th. Meet at the bandshell in Victoria Park at 6:30. The theme for tomorrow is ODD SOCK day.
You can sign the registration form and then we will have a quick discussion to layout the format we will follow. That format will follow this design. Walking warmup, followed by some type of run-walk activity. If we have to start with 30 seconds of jogging and 3 minutes of walking we will do that. Some might be able to run 30 minute without stopping. At the moment we will have 3 groups (one which can include parents who want to run with another adult who will be there for that reason). Some parents might want to run with their children. That is fine as well. After we do the 15 to 20 minutes of activity for the new ones (and potentially longer for the older ones) we will return to the bandshell area to play some type of game. It might be tag or a fun relay or some obstacles. We will gradually introduce things to ensure they aren`t to strenuous at the beginning. At some point we will introduce some fun form work, (arm action drills,high knees, brief accelerations, short hills). We will finish with a social stretch. gotruro.ca – we run.
