Is this good in-season running program for middies/

a good 30 minute treadmill session would be:

Walk briskly 0.25 miles
Jog 0.25 miles (say at 6-7mph)
Run for a mile (7.5mph = 8 minute mile),
Walk briskly for 0.1 miles
Run hard for 0.25 miles (no slower than 8.5mph)
Walk briskly for 0.1 miles
Run hard for 0.25 miles (no slower than 8.5mph)
Walk briskly for 0.1 miles
Run hard for 0.25 miles (no slower than 8.5mph)
Walk briskly for 0.1 miles
Run hard for 0.25 miles (no slower than 8.5mph)
Walk briskly for the remainder of the 30 minute session

open for suggestions (HS age program)
what do some of the colleges teams do or recomend

I say not quite.

If you're going to insist on treadmill running, as opposed to running on grass, be sure you set the treadmill at a 1 degree incline, minimum.

In my opinion, the routine includes distances that are simply too long. Sprinting/hard running is very important for middies, but if a player is doing any sprint work beyond a hundred yards or so, the muscle in their legs will begin converting from fast-twitch (think Bruce Lee) to slow-twitch (Prince Fielder?), which will serve to remove the explosive element from your middies' legs.

I think that a good program would include 60-yard sprints with 30 seconds rest in between. You want a rest time that will allow your players enough recovery to run the next sprint at max effort. At the same time, you want to condition them, right? Do 10 sprints on a pretty regular basis...when you're playing 6 on 6 or 10 on 10, have your players do a dozen up downs every time the ball goes out of bounds or play gets stagnant.

awesome conditioning drill
"the green bay run"
10 100's
8 80's
6 60's
4 40's
2 20's

they have 30 seconds to finish each 100 yard run before the whistle blows and they start again, 25 seconds for the 80 yard runs, 18 seconds for the 60's, 12 seconds for the 40's 8 seconds for the 20's. 2 minutes break after each set of distance is finished.
