Cross country is very similar to road racing but usually on a soft surface, such as grass or trails. Each age group will have one distance (see below) and will race by age group and gender.
Practices will be at Holmes Lake every Monday and Wednesday night from 6:00 - 7:00pm. As it gets darker we will move practice to 5pm. Parents are welcome to come and run with the team.
Divisions are based on year of birth and are in two year intervals. Athletes MUST be born in 2014 to be eligilbe for the team.
|Age Division/Distance||Year of Birth|
|8 & Under||2014|
|9 - 10 -||2012-2013|
|11 - 12 - 3k||2010-2011|
|13 - 14 -||2008-2009|
|15 - 16 - 5||2006-2007|
|17 - 18 -||2004-2005|
Practices are NOT mandatory. We acknowledge that in this day and age our kids are on the go all the time and are involved in numerous activities. We want this program to be what you desire for it to be.
Practices will start with going through different warm ups followed by a team workout. There will be different speeds and distances, but each athlete will have a group.
We desire for this to be a fun experience so we will try and be creative in making it fresh and exciting, but we will also want to challenge them to push themselves to do things they may have never done before.
The first practice will be Wednesday, August 29th and will go through mid November. There will be 7 local meets as well as a National Championship for those who want to compete at a very high level. Meets will start in October and run through early November. You may choose to be done at any point throughout the season.
Cost will be $135 for the season. Discounts are avaiable for multiple athletes. Uniforms and t-shirts are included in the cost. We will use the same uniforms as the track club.
