The Quicksilver Running Club’s Youth Running Team is for kids ages 6 to 18. Our interest is to provide the youth an opportunity to improve their physical condition, learn proper running skills, build self-confidence, and learn to appreciate running our local trails. We also want to provide them an opportunity to compete for QRC in USA Track & Field Junior Olympic events.
The coaches are Marc Klemencic, Sean McPherson, Jeff Eisenman, and Matt Nguyen. Our coaches have many years of running experience (including numerous ultramarathons up to 100 miles in length) and include a USA Track & Field Level 1 Certified Coach. In addition, our coaches have or do coach Cross Country and Track & Field at Bret Harte Middle School and one is the 2015 head coach for Leland High School Cross Country.
If you are interested or you know someone that may be interested, select the link below to the information sheet that explains the program and how the kids can join and be part of the Quicksilver Running Club and the Youth Running Team.
