CROSS COUNTRY is a great sport for all athletes. It’s running up hill and down hills, on grass or trails, around lakes and ponds, at parks and on fields. Boys and girls will get in top shape. The more you put into it, the more you get out of it. It won’t take long to feel good and see improvements, but it does take regular practice.
Our coaches believe in a fun and healthy environment in which our athletes can develop at a rate designed for each individual. Our practices are challenging, which helps our future leaders build self-motivation. Our practice runs will begin at 2 miles and work up to 4 miles. There will be shorter runs for our youngest athletes.

Cross Country Meets
THE MORE MEETS THE ATHLETES PARTICIPATE IN THE MORE THEY IMPROVE AND THE SOONER THEY IMPROVE! Most meets are on Sundays. They begin in mid-September and go through November. Most of the meets on the schedule are part of the Pacific Association /USA Track & Field Youth Program. We also encourage our runners to participate in some local races.
