Kids Triathlon Training
In this program, the participants will be working on improving their technique and endurance in swimming, running, and biking. There will also be discussion on the importance of nutrition and sportsmanship. At the start of the course, the students will be instructed to submit a personal goal; for example: "I want to be able to complete the YMCA triathlon in June". Then, at the beginning of each class, we will set a goal for what we want to accomplish for the day's session. At the end of the class, the kids will assess how they are progressing towards achieving their goals.

Rucking(verb):walking with a weighted rucksack/backpack. It implies action, energy, & purpose. Rucking requires strength, endurance, & character & builds it too. In this 7-week program, you will learn the basics of rucking from an Army Veteran, while building your endurance & strength. As we meet at different parks in Springfield, you will learn how to properly pack your ruck & how to condition for trail hikes. Why Rucking? Rucking can burn up to 3x as many calories as walking. It is as simple as wearing a backpack/rucksack & walking. You can do it on trails & in urban settings. Rucking is also easily scalable by varying the amount of weight in your rucksack, distance & speed. If you are up for a challenge, this is the program for you.
