A fun, character developing after school program

for boys in 3rd to 5th grades!

Unionville Elementary

Tuesday/Thursday 3:30-4:45

STRIDE is a FUN and exciting fitness and running program for boys in 3rd to
5th grade. The program encourages boys to exhibit excellence in character
in all aspects of their lives, make healthy choices, and build confidence
by leading them with a curriculum that incorporates discussion, team
building activities, games and fun running workouts that build endurance so
the boys can successfully complete a 5k at the end of the season. Teams
meet twice a week for 75 minutes, and are led by trained coaches.
Throughout the program, the focus is on doing one's personal best, not
competing with each other. The boys learn the importance of making good
decisions, being a good friend, working as a team, setting goals and
working to achieve them.

The 10 week program starts the week of March 10 and ends May 31.

Registration Instructions:

* If you are receiving REDUCED registration fee, you must
register in person at your closest YMCA.

* Everyone else is encouraged to register online at:

* Questions? Please email Joy Zdebski at ,
