Junior Running & Athletics
Our junior running program is designed for athletes aged 12 to 18, who are interested in competing in track and field events or simply improving their running skills. Our experienced coaches work closely with each athlete to develop personalized training plans that are tailored to their individual needs and goals.
We offer a variety of training sessions, including interval training, hill runs, speed workouts, and long runs. Our coaches emphasize the importance of proper technique and injury prevention and provide guidance on nutrition and hydration to help our athletes perform at their best.
Our club also offers a range of competitive opportunities for junior runners, including track and field meets, cross-country races, and road races. These events provide an opportunity for our athletes to test their skills against other runners, and to challenge themselves to achieve new personal bests.
In addition to our training and competitive programs, our club also emphasizes the importance of community and camaraderie. We believe that running is more than just a sport - it's a way of life, and a way to connect with others who share our passion. Our junior runners have the opportunity to connect with their peers, build lasting friendships, and have fun while achieving their goals.
Nantes AC offers training programs that are designed to help young athletes develop their endurance, speed, and agility, while also promoting good technique and injury prevention.
Interval Training: This type of training involves alternating periods of high-intensity running with periods of recovery. Interval training helps to improve speed and cardiovascular fitness.
Hill Training: Running uphill can be a great way to build leg strength and improve running form. Hill training sessions involve running up and down a hill repeatedly and incorporating hill sprints into a longer run.
Speed Workouts: These sessions involve running shorter distances at a fast pace, with plenty of rest in between. Speed workouts help to improve running efficiency and speed.
Long Runs: Building endurance is important for distance runners, and long runs are a great way to do this. Long runs involve running for an extended period of time at a steady pace or incorporating some faster sections into a longer run.
