After 25 years of coaching and training at the collegiate and elite level, Chuck noticed there was an immediate need to provide age-appropriate content to kids who had little or no access to athletic coaching advice.
He believes that kids should play, not train. Active play, however, can be designed to help a kid develop intentionally. His education and certification as an Olympic-level endurance coach give him an unusual and informed perspective, but it’s his love of fun that guides him.
Team Long Run’s Run club is a free, flexible youth running program that can be delivered at schools (either before, during, or after school), Recreation Departments, or YMCA’s.
We provide both the overall design and component parts that make it easy for the right partner to duplicate our run clubs! We’ll provide the training and guidance (including videos) to the sponsoring organization that’ll give your coaches the tools and confidence they need to make every session fun and productive.
If you think a Run Club would fit in your school or community, contact Chuck at TLR.
