SK Running Club utilizes the USA Track and Field Run Jump Throw Model to teach its introductory program.
Running, jumping and throwing are the foundations of an active life.
USA Track & Field and Hershey teamed up to create RunJumpThrow (RJT), a hands-on learning program that gets kids excited about physical activity by introducing them to the basic running, jumping and throwing skills through track and field.
The RJT plan offers a selection of twenty learning stations for organizers to choose from, including dynamic warm-up, running form and technique, standing broad jump, softball throw and one-legged hop. The program culminates with a non-competitive track meet where kids can apply new skills and celebrate their achievements.

Thousands of players have boosted their self-esteem and interacted with their peers from their community thanks to these clinics. Mainly intended for players aged 3 to 13, our staff of professionals are experienced in creating the type of atmosphere that you will want on an annual basis. By providing a professional coach and including "fairplay" incentives, we will create an environment for every child - no matter their athletic ability - an opportunity to feel success. Our 'Coaches' Education' program is meant to ease the burden and improve the quality of enjoyment for the coaches at the 'Run Jump Throw' level. We provide a pre-season Coaches' Clinic, age-appropriate session plans, direct feedback, professional coaching assistance, and educational videos that allow for the rookie/novice coach to gain the utmost confidence in their ability to improve their players' passion Track and Field.
From coaching articles to session plans to informative videos to a list of coaching courses being offered in New England, our aim is to support those who support their community through this wonderful sport!
We are unique in that we have scoured the internet to find quality coaches and programs in action and provided the visual aid of YouTube Playlists to better economize the knowledge and time commitment that a coach needs to run a quality training session. These YouTube Playlists typically last between 10 – 20 minutes and couple with a custom-made, corresponding PDF ‘information sheet’ that makes the experience structured, stress-free, and greatly enjoyable!
We provide the message of Long Term Player Development and believe that our coaches do, too! SK Running is a USATF Member Club.
