MVS Fall Youth Coaching Program

Merrimack Valley Striders is proud to offer a fall coaching program for elementary school students. Coach Mary Beth Ellis is excited to continue Sidney's Rainbow Runners success from Summer into Fall. 

Sidney's Rainbow Runners program, honoring Sidney Mae Olson, is designed to help inspire a love of running in all elementary school age children (ages 5-11 years old) and will focus on fun, using games and active play to build strength, speed, agility, and mobility in a way geared to younger athletes. Our goal is to teach athletes the fundamentals in an enjoyable low-key atmosphere, working as a team to make progress together.

The program runs 10 weeks from September 13 to November 15, 2023, Wednesday afternoons from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM at the SHED's children's campus, 65 Phillips St, Andover, MA.

To contribute to a fund honoring Sidney Mae Olson and learn more, please visit the Sidney Mae Olson Scholarship Fund.
