I have good news and bad news about our Kickstarters youth running program. The bad news is that, despite starting the process months ago and investigating a number of options, we were not able to secure an available, suitable, and affordable location for a Summer 2019 Kickstarters program. We sincerely apologize for not making this announcement sooner, but we held out hope on finding a location until just yesterday, when our final option fell through.
The good news, however, is that we are using this unexpected off-season to improve and add to our youth running services. I am excited to announce that we have hired Kat Foust as a Fleet Feet Running Club coach. Kat's experience as a youth coach and PE teacher makes her the perfect person to advance our youth programs. We have also partnered with HeartZones and will be incorporating their "To the MAX!" curriculum into our youth training classes. Our current plan is to add some additional youth training opportunities to the list of Fleet Feet Running Club services beginning this fall - with the full menu being available by Summer 2020.
If you have any questions regarding our planned youth activities - or any questions about Fleet Feet Running Club, please send them to email@example.com and we will direct your email to the appropriate person.
The goal of Kickstarters is to instill in children ages 5 to 10 a lifelong love of running. Our 6-week, non-competitive, “open track” program gives kids the opportunity to experience running in a fun, friendly, and safe environment. Participants will learn good form, build strength and endurance, make friends, and experience how improvement is the result of consistent effort.
