The mission of Distance University is to teach young athletes the basics of commitment, teamwork, sportsmanship, character, and self-discipline through running, primarily middle and long distance running.
Our goal is to teach the athletes how to enjoy running through positive reinforcement, goal setting, and competition. We look at running as a life-long sport, one that can help young people handle the challenges in life, and make them successful in anything they wish to accomplish.
Track practices will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6:30 to 8:00. Formal practices will begin again on January 9.
On Tuesday and Thursday our practices will be on the track at Valley Vista High School in Surprise. Wednesday practices will be at Gateway Park in El Mirage, where we focus on our endurance runs. Attending as many practices as possible will greatly enhance your conditioning.
Cross country will begin in late August. We will be practicing at Gateway Park and at the Surprise City Hall parking garage for hill work. Practices will be on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30 to 8:00.
