Loppet Run 365 Development Team

Program Description

The goal of the Loppet Run 365 Development Team is to introduce running as a sport as well as a means to improve performance in other sports. We encourage multiple sports for athletes in this program, so the team practice and camp schedule should allow for training with another team/sport. Loppet TRAIL KIDS ages 12 plus can transition to Loppet Run 365 if they desire to focus more on running.

Coaches will have a variety of workouts keeping the focus on fun but also challenging the athlete. Training sessions will include:

  • Games/relays
  • Running and movement mechanics
  • Plyometrics, agility and speed
  • Core and general strength
  • Endurance training
  • Race tactics and race simulation
  • Pace and race tactics
  • Nutrition and healthy habits for athletes
  • Mental preparation for competition

This program is intended for Junior athletes 12 -15 years old who are interested in improving their fitness, running technique, speed, agility, endurance and racing strategies. This program is open to girls and boys of all ethnic and economic backgrounds. There is no past running experience requirement to participate.
