Fit & Able Productions is a Cary-based non-profit that serves area youths and families in competitive and recreational sports. Our winter season running focuses primarily on running and conditioning. Kids of all ages and skill levels are welcome to participate, and parents too! Team Fit & Able is a USATF sanctioned club and USATF membership is required to join the team.
Team Fit & Able brings USATF Certified Coaches together with athletes that want to accelerate their training while having fun reaching their goals. The training is designed to meet those goals. We adhere to USATF's principle goals to encourage and facilitate our youth to develop physically through team practices and meets, emotionally through growth and positive self-image, and socially through development of friendships and interaction with positive role models. Weekly practices are designed to help athletes set and reach personal goals in both track and field events.
The Fit & Able Winter Running Team (WRT) offers a wide range of training for elementary school kids through senior masters. All ages, skill levels, and abilities are welcome and encouraged to participate. Younger athletes are strongly encouraged to have their parents stay with the team during practice and racing. We encourage all our members to take part at whatever level they wish to participate, whether it's improving their running abilities or just wanting to walk for fitness.
This team is sanctioned by USA Track & Field and requires USATF membership to participate.
Participants will do many activities that benefit any sport you pursue. Winter running program is about getting better through preparation. We are only given so much talent – our success comes from how we prepare to use those gifts. Individual goals and abilities are the driving force in Winter Training & Conditioning.
Regular Team Training: WRT will meet twice a week to run, do core exercises, and flexibility/agility drills. Regular practices will typically be scheduled Saturdays 9 - 10 AM and Wednesdays 4 - 5 PM. The full season will run from Wednesday January 13th to Wednesday March 3rd.
Location: Practices will typically be held at area parks. Please Note: Some practices may be moved to accommodate meet conflicts. Details for each practice, including time and location, will be sent by email the night before the practice.
Weather Cancellations: Practices will be cancelled if weather conditions are or are predicted to be hazardous. Notice will be emailed and texted (if a cell number was provided) to team parents as soon as possible. The cancellation decision is at the coach's discretion. Practices cancelled due to weather will not be rescheduled.
Athletes: All ages 6 & Up and skill levels are welcome. Parents are encouraged to sign up and train with their young athletes!
