When does the club start
Thursday 12th March
What time will it begin and finish
6pm - 7pm
Ocean, Queen's Drive, Exmouth (we will gather inside for the registration)
*The club will not run during school holidays unless a leader is available and there is interest from the children.
What will the children be doing?
The sessions will be planned by qualified run leaders. Will and Shelly are both super friendly and inspiring coaches. The aim is to get children running, but by doing this using fun yet challenging activities. By taking training right back to basics, this allows students to build a far stronger foundation and they will see a much greater increase with in performance.
The session will always start with a warm up and during this the children will be taught the importance of warming up, the muscles we warm up and the warm up routine.
The main part of the session will last around 30 minutes. This could include skill work, Agility, balance, flexibility, speed, stamina, interval, hill and endurance training. Some sessions will be taught on the beach, at Phear Park, Carter Avenue Park and some will be taking the group off running around the local area. Once the first few sessions have taken place we will then hand out a course programme which will have an itinerary and registration points.
The session will always finish with a cool down and we will then have 5 minutes to evaluate with the children how the session went.
We encourage all children to keep a note pad as they may want to jot down their achievements from the sessions.
