Team VERGE is an inclusive running and wheelchair training program for adults and youth age 6+, with and without intellectual, developmental, emotional/behavioral, or physical challenges. All abilities welcome. Membership is free.
We are not just a program, we are a club. We are a place where members belong; a place to train together or gain independence; a place members can come and go throughout the year hassle free or for focused, dedicated training; a place where everyone supports and respects each other and each other's differences. We are a team.
Participants train for fitness, for fun, to prepare for inclusion in school sports, and to train for events and competition. In addition to regular coached practices, members have opportunities throughout the year to participate or compete in mainstream or para events in track and field, road races, cross country, trail running, and team events.
Through the fun and challenge of sport, participants have opportunity to try new things and push their limits in a fun, friendly, educational, and supportive team environment, which inspires and encourages self-belief, discovery, and achievement, while receiving the individual attention they need for success at reaching their ever expanding levels of potential.
FAMILIES…get fit together! Join us at practices or join your child for runs on days between practices to develop fitness or prepare for an event. Training plans available upon request.
