Why a running club?
Every kid needs a place to learn grit, build self confidence and have fun. Forney Flyers is a unique place where each of those objectives can be achieved.
Youth who join the Forney Flyers will have a safe place to run with kids their age while learning to set goals and work hard to crush them.
All of the skills learned through our running club will help youth be successful in their life at whatever they set out to do.
Weekly team runs
Practices will be Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 at Forney Park. Park at the Ampitheather area and meet on the hill by the football field.
Every practice will start with warmup drills for 5-10 minutes. The main running portion will be about 30-40 minutes with a 10 min cool down, stretch and team shout outs.
Forney Flyers will be running to earn MILEstones awards and recognition. Merits will be earned for every 10 miles they run across practices.
Forney Flyers will learn training tools, and foundational running principles at every practice.
