Venetia Valley at Summerfest!



The Dipsea Kidz is a distinctive youth development running program established by The Dipsea Race Foundation. It is available this fall to students grades 4th to 8th grade FREE of charge. It is coached by experienced, dedicated coaches.


Dipsea Kidz Days: We meet 15 min after school dismissal, on Tuesday & Thursday in Room 1 (Ms. Kegley's room).


Our mission:

  1. Provide a safe, non-competitive environment to students.
  2. Promote, the benefits of physical activity, stretching and healthy eating.
  3. Experience pride in goal setting and personal accomplishment.
  4. Most importantly, teach life long positive habits while having fun!

Dipsea Kidz is partnering with Venetia Valley teachers Freddy Dominguez & Allie Kegley in order to prepare the Middle School students to participate in the fall Marin Cross Country Season.
