My name is Olivia Savage and I am a passionate advocate for youth athletics. I specialize in working with youth athletes of all ages, abilities and skills, helping them to develop their running abilities in a fun and supportive environment.
I have always loved sports and I am thrilled to be able to share that passion with others. As a coach, I believe in using positive reinforcement to help each child achieve their goals, whether that means running a mile without stopping or setting a new personal best.
I have worked with a wide range of kids, from beginners to experienced runners. I know that every child is unique, and I tailor my coaching approach to meet the individual needs of the athlete. I believe in creating a safe and supportive environment for all my athletes, and safety is always top of my priorities.
Kids Run This Town is a nonprofit, empowerment program for youth of all fitness levels. We use running and active games to help teach resilience and self-confidence by transforming traditional running games and drills into powerful life lessons. When children are with us, they are getting a great workout AND building strength of character.
We believe that every child is able to compete and reach goals they once thought were beyond them.
We focus on 8 core principles we've put together create a unique and powerful curriculum; one which combines physical health (running skills) with strength of character. Each session has been thoughtfully designed to facilitate a growth mindset. Through the drills and games, kids are reminded that they are strong, powerful, able, and empowered to take on an attitude that whether they run it, or walk it, whatever they do - they can rock it!
Our goal is to empower kids and build character through physical activity. We want to introduce running as a fun and rewarding activity for all ability fitness levels. Running is a life long sport and our programs will set the foundation for a growth mindset, build confidence and show kids they CAN do hard things. The skills learned in Kids Run This Town will benefit kids for years to come.
Kids Run This Town strategically partners with local schools, community centers, organizations, and professionals to receive insight into prospective participants and maximize our impact in the communities we serve.
Our mission at Kids Run This Town is to inspire kids of all ages and abilities to lead healthy, active lives through running and track and field programs. We believe that running is a fun and accessible way for kids to develop physical fitness, mental toughness, self-esteem and build a sense of community. Our experienced coaches and volunteers are dedicated to creating a positive and supportive environment where kids can build confidence, develop new skills and make friends. We strive to instill a love of running in all of our athletes and to help them reach their full potential.
Our vision is to create a world where all kids have the opportunity to discover the joy and benefits of running and fitness. We aim to provide a safe, inclusive and empowering space for kids to explore their physical and mental capabilities and develop lifelong habits of fitness and well-being. Through Kids Run This Town, we hope to inspire the next generation of runners and leaders, who will use their passion and skills to make a positive impact on their communities.
