Winter Conditioning

Crazy Running – Winter Conditioning, one of our most popular training sessions, include weeks of endurance, strength and speed development for youth ages 5 – 14. Sixty-minute workouts include running, stretching, strength training, running form work, plyometrics, speed development and more! The Crazy Running program motivates, encourages, and challenges young athletes to push themselves, improve their fitness and develop their athletic ability. We find that athletes do benefit from participating one day per week, but find that the athletes that participate more than one day per week grow more athletically. Crazy Running Winter Conditioning will help the young athlete: be more prepared for spring sports, increase speed and endurance, improve core strength, increase overall fitness in the off-season, become a stronger athlete! Play Crazy, Run Hard!

Spring Training

Our program is designed to help develop coordination and athleticism in young kids. No matter what sport your kids are getting ready for, running can get them in great condition and help them become balanced, well-rounded athletes. We teach the fundamentals using structured practices, form drills, running specific exercises, and running specific plyometrics. We believe in teaching kids to run correctly, being challenged aerobically each practice, and having fun with running games designed to bring out the competitive spirit.

This fun, challenging training program will prepare Tykes (3-4 year olds), Juniors (5 – 7 year olds), Upperclassmen (8 – 10 year olds) and Teenz (11 – 14 year olds) to compete in Crazy Kz, a low-key cross country style event where kids run a certain distance based on their age and abilities. We will focus on goal setting and determination as we train to compete in this fun day of racing that is also a fundraiser for the WS/FCS Healthful Living Department!

Instead of focusing on increasing distance, we prefer the focus to be a child competing to the best of their ability. Encouraging kids to give their best, never give up, and always set big goals is what we are all about!

We are planning a fun, family friendly event! In addition to our sponsors attending, David Daggett is our MC and Robert Hill Photography will be taking photos! Plus ArtInTent will be doing face painting and Kona Ice will be on-site!

Summer

We know families usually have a full summer schedule planned. In an effort to keep kids active over the summer and get them away from computer screens we are offering flexible programming. We will host Crazy Running sessions multiple days each week and with the purchase of a punch card you can attend the number of practices that work for your summer schedule. If you plan on being in Winston-Salem all summer we would love for you to join us for every single summer practice.


Summer Speedsters

Our Summer Speedsters program will have a focus on getting kids prepared for a fast Beat The Heat Mile. There will be a conditioning component and a speed development component. Each practice will follow a similar structure with a warmup run, form running drills, a workout, a cool down run, and stretches. Our workouts include lots of running, plyometrics, sprints, agility drills, and hills. As with all of our Crazy Running programs we disguise our workouts with fun games and team challenges. Be sure to bring a water bottle, wear comfortable athletic shoes, and athletic gear.
