East Granby Parks & Recreation is excited to offer a winter bridge program for our current program participants. This four-week, goal-oriented program will focus on the fundamentals of distance running to further develop a solid running foundation as it relates to all sports. 

We will continue to further develop proper running form, key strength training exercises, pre/post workout stretching techniques, proper nutrition, and self-care for all athletes. Participants will also continue to build character skills, such as good sportsmanship, perseverance, keeping a positive attitude, setting, and achieving goals, and understanding the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
