2nd Recess is a health centered youth nonprofit serving the greater San Diego area. Since our inception in the summer of 2011 our focus as an organization has been on inspiring San Diego youth to be active through running and track & field.
Our team of coaches and volunteers are highly educated and active in their respective athletic fields. We have Olympic Trials finalists, former NCAA varsity athletes, and locally competitive athletes who all share their unique experiences with our 2nd Recessers.
At 2nd Recess we believe that being healthy and active in the community is a key ingredient to inspiring others to be active as well. Through Patience, Perseverance, and Positivity we encourage the young athletes in our program to set big goals and explore their athletic gifts.
2nd Recess practices always include a proper warmup and cooldown including fun drills and stretches. Athletes learn how to perform “strides”, do sprint starts, run hills, and run the popular “fartlek” workout.
We have athletes of all ages, from as young as five years old all the way up to 13 and 14 years old. Practices are tailored to fit each athletes age and ability and always centered on having fun while challenging yourself.
We are proud to have been serving the San Diego community for over 3 years. As a passionate organization we will continue to inspire others through fun and fitness in 2014.
