Due to COVID-19 and CDC guidelines aimed at curbing the spread of the virus, after school activities including the Active SWV Kids Run Clubs have been cancelled. Active SWV wants to make sure kids can still have some of the structure and support being part of a sport provides. To achieve this, Active SWV is launching our Spring 2020 Kids Run Club program – virtual edition!
The Virtual Kids Run Club season will be open from April 13th-May 24th, and ALL kids are invited to participate.
Following CDC Guidelines and Staying Safe While Being Active: Active Southern West Virginia urges everyone to do their part by following CDC guidance to prevent the spread of infectious diseases by maintaining safe distances, washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoiding contact with eyes, nose, and mouth, covering mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and most importantly, staying home if sick.
Please note that Active SWV does not encourage gathering in groups to be active, or traveling to high traffic locations for activity. If you do choose to go to a public park or trail to get in some activity for the Virtual Regional Fun Run, please avoid crowded spots and be mindful and respectful of closings at those locations. Please protect yourself and others by following measures that the CDC is recommending to curb the spread of disease.
What does a ‘Virtual Kids Run Club’ mean?
> This means Active SWV will still provide weekly Kids Run Club activities just like at school, but you can participate and log your time online from home.
>We’ll invite you to use the free online tracking app, Clockify, to log your activity and see what others from your school are doing. This way you’re still connected to your Kids Run Club community.
> Participants who regularly log their activity at least once a week will receive a participation gift in the mail once the virtual season is over.
