Our Fast & Fit program has two primary goals - develop the 'team' culture early and develop the fundamentals of athleticism. The program aligns with the 'Learn to Train' phase of long term athletic development (seehttps://ltad.alpinecanada.org/stages/learn-to-train). Broadly speaking, the program is targeted at 8-12 year olds though we may accept younger or older kids if it is deemed appropriate. The main goals of the program are:
- Have fun, play games, connect with your team mates and coaches.
- Increase awareness of how the body works and how to train.
- Develop physical literacy - agility, balance, coordination, basic speed, basic strength - through games and fun drills.
- Develop flexibility
- Develop fundamental skills of throwing, kicking, running, hopping, balancing etc.
