Cross-Country Schedule Change

August 18, 2011

The first cross-country meeting and practice will be held on Tuesday, August 23 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. Activity busses will be available to take students home. All cross-country participants must have a current physical and athletic permit card on file. Athletic permit cards are available on the activity table located in the main hallway.

Students should be ready to practice a full workout session with appropriate clothing - shorts, tops, water bottles, socks, and gym shoes.

The team practices every day except Friday. Team members are expected to attend as many practices as possible. Sports physicals must be turned in before any athlete may run in a competition. Students "earn" their uniform and the opportunity to compete when they can complete our 2-mile home course at Lincoln Park in 24 minutes or less. Students may continue to practice with the team as they try to attain that goal.
