Spots Available for Town Youth Programs: Just Run and Start Smart

Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes’ popular youth programs, Just Run® and Start Smart are back for the fall and still have spots available! Both programs are held at Miami Lakes Picnic Park West, 15151 NW 82nd Avenue.

The Just Run® Miami Lakes Program, in its 6th year, is a free, fun program that promotes fitness, healthy eating, good citizenship, and pride in accomplishment. The program is open to elementary and middle school students, ages 5 through 14. The Just Run® Miami Lakes Program will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm and will run through April.

The Start Smart Sports Development Program, developed by the National Alliance for Youth Sports, aims to help prepare children ages 3-5 years old for organized youth sports by using safe and fun equipment while developing basic motor skills. The 2nd session of the 6-week program will run from October 14th to December 2nd, and helps parents work one-on-one with their children while teaching them the basics of sports like throwing, catching, kicking, and batting. Classes will be held for 6 consecutive Wednesdays from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Parents must attend each session with their child.
