Run Ready Kids

“The essence of sport is having fun – when you kill fun, lifelong development stops.”Dan Pfaff, renowned US Track & Field coach, coach of Olympic and World Champions, Donovan Bailey(100m, 4x100m) and Greg Rutherford (Long Jump).

The Run Ready Kids program introduces and develops the fundamentals of physical literacy, in a fun, team-oriented and challenging environment. We focus on delivering the key athletic skills of running, jumping, throwing in a way that first develops the ABCs – Agility, Balance, Coordination, speed – then increases the volume, while continuing to promote improvement in the quality of movement. Our game-based, age-appropriate activities, maximize involvement and ensure lots of opportunities for repetition that assists with acquiring skills. Challenges and competitions are strategically implemented to ensure that learning is optimal, while also providing the chance for coaches to assess improvement when intensity, speed and decision-making are tested.

Physical, cognitive and emotional development are progressive, but not linear. We understand that maturation rates impact all individuals and stages differently. We also know that quality programs, well-taught, create engaged, enthusiastic and confident participants. Sport, like education, is a life-long learning journey, and we want to make sure that the early experiences are positive, productive and create the desire to continue.

The philosophy that underpins all Run Ready programs, is that of long-term athlete participation and the full development of an individual’s potential.

“As a parent of four children, with different social and physical interests, I recognise the importance of an inclusive, progressive, challenging and well-organized sporting program. Run Ready Kids has helped my son improve his running and coordination, giving him greater confidence and interest in sport and fitness, while encouraging him to reach his goal of representing the school in cross country.”Rebecca
