At The Running School for Children & Young Adults we make training fun! Because it has to be fun. We look at the individual biomechanics (the way they move) and the sport that the child is involved in. This special running programme for children and young adults takes into account their growth, co-ordination and ability. The sessions are suitable for ages 9-16 years old and of all abilities – from very sporty children and young adults to those who are not confident in activity and sport.
The Children & Young Adult Movement Analysis is a 45-minute session where we will analyse your child’s running technique using video analysis and analyse their movement using our Dynamic Movement Skills® child analysis. This will allow us to identify any inefficiencies that could cause injury or prevent your child from moving and running faster. We will look at both the overall movement and co-ordination of your child. Depending on the findings of the analysis, our expert coaches will discuss with you, the parent or guardian, the findings, our recommendations and how we can help.
Running Technique Coaching for Children & Young Adults is offered in a block of 6 sessions, to ensure that your child is successful in improving their movement and running technique. The first session will consist of a bio-mechanical analysis which will set a benchmark, identifying where the key improvements can be made. The following 5 sessions are dedicated to learning the correct technique by using our accelerated learning methods. At the end of the programme, we will re-test to show improvements, and you will receive a before & after video of running technique improvements. Sessions are 45 minutes long, and can be taken once or twice a week to allow time to practice in between, OR can be condensed into an intensive programme during school holidays.
