Competitive Youth Training

ANNUAL REGISTRATION CLOSED FOR 2018

Athletes are welcome come out for a free trial during December. 

Purpose: to provide event specific age appropriate training. 

 

TGR competitive groups are specifically designed for athletes with a desire to take training to the next level.  The best way for athletes to do this is not only to practice at a higher level, but also to compete.  The most specific practice an athlete can do is participation in competition.  Since coaches cannot duplicate a competition in practice, participation in meets becomes vitally important.  Therefore, members of the Team Green Competitive group are required to commit to a minimum of 3 cross country and/or track competitions or 5 road races per membership year.  School competitions count for this requirement. 

The Registration "Competitive Youth Training" is not currently available.

Cross Country & Distance Training

Team Green's Youth Cross Country program provides age appropriate distance training for athletes 7yrs through High School. 

Our athletes wont just come and run mileage. Coaches will teach runners the purpose of the various types of training and when and how it should be implemented. For distance runners involved in school programs, the competitive group is designed to act as supplemental training program. Often times athletes are zoned into programs that simply don't provide the training necessary to take runners to the top. We will assist athletes physiologically and psychologically in realizing their potential.

Sprints & Hurdles Training

For years TGR has offered speed training for athletes in all sports, now we are offering group training specifically for track athletes. The training focuses on block starts, sprint and hurdle technique, with some basic conditioning.

Teaching the technical aspects of starting and hurdling and relay exchanges takes time and man power. Very few High Schools and even fewer Jr. Highs can do an adequate job due to their numbers and too few coaches.  

Team Green not only has the man power, but we also have the experience and expertise to provide an edge for serious athletes that wish to step up their game.

Benefits

 

  • The Competitive group has the opportunity to hear guest speakers.  These sessions are lead by professionals in the field of sport medicine, sports psychologist, and others in the running field, as well as motivational speakers. 
  • The competitive group is divided into Distance and Sprint groups, each with a designated coach to lead the event group.  This naturally allows for a lower coach/athlete ratio which gives the athletes a better quality and more personal instruction. 
  • Having the two distinct groups better lends itself to training that is more specific to the athlete's needs.

 

Training schedule: athletes are not required to attend all sessions

All youth athletes enrolled in training with Team Green are required to annually register ($75).  As a registered member you receive a TGR t-shirt and membership with USATF providing you with insurance coverage during practices and youth meets & events.
