START-A-CLUB

HOW TO START A CLUB:

 

STEP 1:

Enlist a Coach. This could be YOU, yes you. NO running experience required, WE PROMISE. You are qualified because A) You're adult over 18 B) You want to invest in boys and their personal development. A coach can be a teacher, a brother, a dad, a mom, a coach or a community member. One volunteer coach can lead a team of up to 10 boys and we support 2 coaches for up to 12 boys. 

 

STEP 2:

Locate your practice site. This could be your child's school, a park, community center, church or the sidewalks of your neighborhood.

 

STEP 3:

Recruit Young Tritons. With support and resources from YTRC, spread the word and get your group of boys signed up and excited. Our easy-to-use online registration system makes this step a breeze for coaches and parents.

 

STEP 4:

Get your supplies & training. YTRC supplies everything you need to implement the program. Our flexible and user-friendly virtual training provides you with a comprehensive curriculum overview and the tools you need to have a successful experience.

 

STEP 5:

Dive in! Start your 6-week journey of learning, growing, challenging, training and ultimately... discovering the finish line is just the beginning!

WHAT DOES IT COST?

 

Using the data from each school, we identify the cost of Young Tritons based on each schools percentage of students qualifying for free or reduced lunch. In order to determine the cost for your school, find the percentage as reported from your school (if you don't know, email heidi@minimermaidrunningclub.org and she can quickly help) listed below and you will see the cost per student for Young Tritons. The fees can come from each student, from the school, or from fundraising.

CAN I BE A COACH?

Coaches for the program are adult volunteers from within the community who donate their time, energy and passion for healthy living as they guide the boys through the 6-week program.  

 

Practices are spent playing games to emphasize the curricular goals of the week and running every practice to build their fitness to participate in a completion 5k. 

 

 The cost per Young Triton supports up to 2 Coaches and 12 Young Tritons per team.
