Middle School Cross Country Camp

Beginner Running for Kids! Get them ready for Middle School & Junior High Athletics!

Fleet Feet Sports’ 8-week, non-competitive, conditioning camp will get kids ready to join middle school cross country. This program is also great for youngsters who are getting ready for other fall middle school/early high school sports where they will be doing a lot of running, or for kids who just want to keep moving in a fun group environment over the summer! Camp meets twice weekly during July and August and introduces the fundamentals of form and speed development in a non-competitive environment through creative drills and a gradual building of running endurance to 30 minutes. The program is designed for students entering the 6th, 7th or 8th grades in Fall 2017, and the focus is on FUN!

Program Includes:

Program includes a camp t-shirt, 16 coached group sessions of interactive games to get kids moving & build an endurance base. Training plan includes two weekly group sessions, plus 1 additional workout plan. Upon registration, receive special discounted coupons for running essentials to get started on the right foot.
