New Professional Development Workshops

Running isn't an innate skill. When kids learn to run properly, they enjoy the sport and become more confident in their abilities. New this year, NYRR experts will come to your school or center and lead free professional development workshops on how to teach kids to run. E-mail youthprograms@nyrr.org to set up a session.
