Youth Running Program

Registration for the Prospect Park Youth Running Club is open, with the next opportunity on Wednesday, July 29, at Bishop Ford.

The program is in its second year, for boys and girls age 6-13, and run by Sean Rice. According to an e-mail describing the club:

The goal ``is to offer the young boys and girls of Brooklyn an opportunity to experience the fitness benefits, joys of competition, and team unity of Cross Country and Long Distance Running through an education-based program. The participants of the program will have the opportunity to receive sport specific instruction from accomplished coaches and athletes in our community. The level of each athlete will be taken into consideration as we develop an individualized training and performance plan for the season. "

Some pretty awesome photos of kids smiling as they receive trophies from their efforts in cross-country and track!
