The best way to predict the future is to create it. Set goals. Make a plan. Work hard. Be relentless in chasing your dreams. Your momentum creates the door upon which opportunity knocks and then you'll kick down the door!
Dreaming Big requires planning & goal setting. As part of our process, we set S.M.A.R.T goals in health & happiness, school, family & friends, running, and fun.
At Spark, we work to improve ourselves every single day not just in running but in all aspects of our life based on our foundational principles that guide our actions.
To become stronger, we focus on fun, speed, strength, endurance, flexibility, coordination, nutrition, form, and mental toughness. What we do today makes us better tomorrow.
S - SET GOALS: Create annual written goals in running, school, family, friends, experiences & fun, and health & happiness.
P - PERSEVERANCE: Persistence in achieving goals. Overcoming challenges. Being accountable. Always improving. Being better than yesterday.
A - ATTITUDE: Do your best. Think positive. Believe in yourself and your teammates. Be respectful. Use good manners. Have fun!
R - ROLE MODEL: Do the right think when no one is looking. Be on time. Be prepared. Good behavior. Good student. Contribute to your school and community.
K - KINDNESS: Having compassion, gratitude and empathy. Treating others the way they wish to be treated.
At Spark, we believe in developing the whole person regardless of their running ability. We are much more than a running club. Our motto is "Igniting Your Life"- we strive to be that "spark" that jumpstarts hopes and dreams and creates an environment for achievement through goal setting, hard work, and persistence. Our focus is to create bigger goals, better people and stronger athletes based on our foundational principles.
