New York Road Runners Youth Track and Field Program...
One of the best youth fitness programs for the price in New York City. The New York Road Runners Club has been sponsoring a youth track and field training programs for many years to encourage children's interest in this sport and promote youth fitness. My son participated for many years when the program was initially held at Asphalt Green on the upper east side of Manhattan and went on to win middle school championships. The program is now held at the New Balance Armory in the Washington Heights section of upper Manhattan. The program is held in both spring and the fall, for a total price for $40 each season. The children receive training in running, sprints, jumping and hurdles. Participation ribbons are awarded to all and individual first second and third place ribbons are awarded for competitive events. The program is available for boys and girls ages 6 through 14.
