Cork Sports Partnership Fit4Youth programme...Starts October 2018

Cork Sports Partnership are holding a Fit4Youth programme aimed at 12-16 year olds in Cork City and it starts on October 1st. It is a 6 week programme consisting of 1 hour sessions per week, delivered by experienced coaches from local Athletics Clubs. The Fit4Youth programme has been developed by former international athlete Geraldine Nolan, who launched it with great success in her local Kilkenny City Harriers club in 2013.

Aim of the programme?

a) Instilling and helping to foster an awareness of fitness and enjoyment of running over a set period of weeks, with the aim of  building up to 5K   in a ‘Learning to Run’ programme that is paced and carefully monitored, while increasing in incremental distances.
b) Helping to foster a positive attitude to health and fitness that will become a life skill.
c) Creating links to local Clubs that will hopefully encourage sustainable participation by particiopants in the Fit4Youth programme.
