RE: Cross Country information
The 2019 cross country season is approaching, and sign-ups are scheduled from 6:00 – 7:00 on Tuesday, July 30 and Tuesday, August 6 at the Gerres Building in the back parking lot behind the gym.
For people unfamiliar with the cross country program, there are two boys’ teams and two girls’ teams. The boys and girls each have a JV team for 3rd through 6th grade and a Varsity team for 7th & 8th grade. The JV courses are approximately 1 mile, and the Varsity courses are approximately 2 miles. All four teams practice together and have their meets on the same day, and all four races are typically completed in two hours. We encourage participation from children of all levels of ability and experience. Last season, the team had a large group of third graders, so it would be great to see another large third grade group this year.
We encourage parents to run with us at practice, so we can set up running groups for the children based on their abilities. The team will practice on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm at Carousel Park, and the team meets at the Carousel Park entrance next to the playground. In addition, the team may have several optional practices during the season.
There is one meet a week on either Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon, and the CYM season concludes with the championship meet on Saturday, October 26.
