The Calumet Region Striders offer youth programs for kids ages 6 - 18 who are interested in running. It is for all levels of runners. We have two seasons: Track & Field (which includes field events, sprints, and distance) which goes from May - July and Cross Country which goes from September - November. We hold two practices a week in season in both Porter and Lake Counties. The programs include some inter-squad activities as well as information for optional competitive meets of which some members of the team typically competes. It is a great way to meet local kids in the area who share your interest in running and can definitely be done after your school season ends (for middle and high school age kids). The program fee is very reasonable (compared to other sports) at just $30 per season.
