Programs

Loppet Run 365 Devo Team and Mini-Devo Team

The goal of the Loppet Run 365 Development Team is to introduce running as a sport as well as a means to improve performance in other sports. We encourage multiple sports for athletes in this program, so the team practice and camp schedule should allow for training with another team/sport. Loppet TRAIL KIDS ages 12+ can transition to Loppet Run 365 if they desire to focus more on running. The Development Team is directed toward ages 12-15 and the Mini-Devo Team is directed for athletes age 6-11. No previous running or racing experience is required.

Coaches will have a variety of workouts keeping the focus on fun but also challenging the athlete. Training sessions will include:

  • Games/relays
  • Running and movement mechanics
  • Plyometrics, agility and speed
  • Core and general strength
  • Endurance training
  • Race tactics and race simulation
  • Pace and race tactics
  • Nutrition and healthy habits for athletes
  • Mental preparation for competition
