NON-COMPETITIVE GAMES AND TRAINING ROUTINES
In our post-club questionnaire, the children often cite the running games as their favorite part for club. The games sometimes incorporate reading and writing, are always fun, and allow for individual levels of achievement. All of the games can be adapted for children of different ages and who are at various levels of development.

Week 2: Dogs and Ducks An engaging game of tag.
Week 3: Squirrels, Chipmunks, and Acorns A running "acorn" hunt.
Week 4: Boston Marathon A fitness game with running, walking, & more. This is a good game to use when you have a lot of children but limited space.
