Our goal is to provide the opportunity for our athletes to explore and experience the positive aspects of competitive distance running and racing. Camaraderie, teamwork, personal commitment, pride, fitness and fun are just a few benefits that cross country running has to offer.
- Improvement: Having a goal to grow as an individual and as a team, both physically and mentally.
- Truthful: Relationships are based on trust so tell the truth.
- Positive: Unconditional positive regard for others.
We attempt to make the program appealing to a wide range of abilities. From the novice to the all-state athlete, we want this athletic experience to be memorable. Our goal is to instill a lifelong love of distance running in our athletes.
We run a 7th through 12th grade program. Middle school runners will do some races and activities with the high school athletes throughout the season. Decisions about where and when athletes compete are based upon individual development and maturity.
At this time rosters are unlimited, but because of our large team, it is required that you be able to show at the start of the season an adequate amount of fitness gained during the summer. This will be assessed by the athlete in grades 10, 11, and 12 being able to train at an adequate level. Varsity is considered the top twelve runners on the team. The rest of the team is JV.
