Drop-In Running Clinic for kids

Two rising high school sophomores on the Cross Country and Track teams at Newton South High School are eager to share their knowledge and love for the sport, and help provide guidance and support for the next generation of young distance runners (ages 8-12) in the Newton community.

Sessions will meet from 8:00 – 9:30 am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays each week, from June 22nd – July 31st, at the Newton South High School track. The group will do some running (of course!) and also learn about proper stretching and other drills and exercises to enhance fitness and speed. They’ll also play get-to-know-you games and other group activities, while keeping proper social distancing at all times.

Masks will be required for all participants, and may – if allowed by the then-applicable guidelines – be set aside for activities where proper social distancing can be maintained. Instructors Felix Rogovin and Ben Pistiner will also cover training advice (including cross-training, such as biking and swimming), and discuss good habits for athletes – eating well, sleeping well, etc. They’ll talk about running as a team sport and the importance of supporting each other.

Flyer can be viewed here: Running camp. You can sign up for as many days as you’d like, but they need to know you’re coming, so if you’re interested, please sign up at https://forms.gle/TxvSHWwnWsLK5WsH7

The suggested (optional) participation fee is: $5.00 – $10.00 per session, or $20.00 per week. If you have any questions, please email, text or call Rogovin2@gmail.com or 617-821-3375.
