Spring Running Club
What is Running Club?
An after school activity run by parent volunteers who want to instill a love of running and movement in our kids so they become life-long athletes. We focus on running form, pacing and agility while making it a fun/fitness activity. Spring Running club focuses on agility and form and ends with our infamous Crooked Mile Obstacle course run.
Who should join Running Club?
Anyone who wants to have fun exercising and learning some running basics! Students don't need experience, but should bring a positive attitude and willingness to participate in all activities. Cubs can walk or jog or run, and should be prepared to move.
Is Running Club a good way to serve my child care needs?
While we don't require parents to be present, we also don't have enough coaches to sit with kids who don't want to try. Please make sure your child wants to participate. We tell the cubs who join Running Club that "Running Club is a privilege and that privilege can be taken away if you don't follow the rules."
The Crocker/Riverside Running Club promotes enthusiasm for running and gives students an opportunity to participate in an after-school fitness program. The club has four primary goals:
- Teach proper warm-ups, stretches, and running technique.
- Improve our athletes’ fitness with agility activities.
- Develop students’ team spirit and leadership skills by modeling the behavior of parent coaches and student work-out leaders.
- Most importantly, make it fun to run and play.
- The Running Club is open to all students, grades 1st through 6th grades, and is staffed by parent volunteers. Typically, the club meets once a week. And new this year, students can earn distance towards the Stride program.
We cap off Running Club but getting as many students to participate in the UC Davis Children's Hospital MaraFun Run - a great event put on by the Sacramento Running Association - in conjunction with the California International Marathon.
