Y SPEED Youth Running Club

It's time to throw on your running shoes and be the first members of our brand new youth running club!  The Hopkins County Family YMCA is starting a running club to focus on all ages of runners with the option to participate in USATF-sanctioned (USA Track & Field) meets.


The goal of Y Speed is to help kids learn about running in a fun atmosphere with peers from various schools.  As a club, Y Speed will participate in local, regional, and national events.  The program offers youth the opportunity to improve their running ability, while having a chance to learn from some of the most experienced coaches in the area.  The purpose of this program is to give youth, who would like to improve their abilities past the regular season, an opportunity to train with others in the area and surrounding counties.  It allows them to team up and represent Western Kentucky at the Regional, State and National USATF Championships.  Giving the individual an opportunity to strive to improve the best of his or her ability a chance to receive coaching will help them reach their goals.
