If you are motivated to train at a high and enjoyable level, maximize your athletic potential, and train in a Christ-centered environment, the Valor XC & Distance Academy is for you! This Summer Training programs is designed for all middle schoolers (current 6th - 8th graders) looking to get in shape for the train for future XC seasons, spring racing, or just looking to get fit for an upcoming athletic season. Training will be based on the experience of each athlete. We will spend the summer working on flexibility, running mechanics, speed, core strength, power/explosiveness, aerobic conditioning, race pace work, race strategy, etc. We will meet Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday mornings from 7am - 9am starting June 5th. Training will take place primarily on the trails around the Highlands Ranch/Littleton area (Grigs East/West Trailhead, High Line Canal, The Bluffs, Writer's Vista, DeKoevend Park etc). Coach Cook will communicate location information on a weekly basis.
