‘Lil Wolverines Running Club for 2nd- 8th Grade Runners

Lil Wolvervines Running Club is an 8 week co-ed running program suitable for 2nd through 8th grade students. Our season will start with practices that lead to runners taking part in real 1.86 mile XC races run in the Northeast Georgia Youth Running League. (Entry fee in all 6 of these races are included in cost).

This program will develop and encourage children of all running abilities to progress from their current level of fitness to being able to complete a 1.86 mile run at the conclusion of the program. This will be achieved through a variety of games which incorporate running. We will always do a small amount of core exercise and stretching at the beginning and end of each session.

Cost:  $85.00

Practices: Practice will be on Wednesdays right after school (Coach Palmer will get them from car rider line) starting in August on the Prince Avenue XC Course. Practice will go from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm. We will also practice from 8:30 am to 9:30 am on Saturday mornings at Prince Avenue track. Once the races start, we will run on Saturday mornings so we will only practice on Wednesdays right after school.
