Practices are fun and demanding. The focus is on fitness and improvement for the individual within a team environment. The sport builds self confidence and running has been shown to improve academic performance. Cross country will improve endurance for soccer, lacrosse and winter sports. 
 
Kids have played soccer and lacrosse concurrently.

***UPDATED*** 24 August 2020:

Sorry for the late opening of Cross Country Registration.
 Tentative start dates for the fall season will be the weekend of Sept 5th.

Once we have registrations completed, we will create a TeamSnap and use that for official communications.
We have heard that Patti Winn has volunteered to be the head coach for Cross Country! THANK YOU
We always need more volunteers and additional coaches.

Some of the new protocols to expect returning to the field
1. Pre-screening yourself prior to joining practice, or participating in a meet (if you feel sick, please stay home)
2. Use of PPE by coaches and all maintaining social distancing
3. Temperature screenings prior to participating in meets
4. Respect 14 day quarantine measures if you have recently traveled to a state as specified by the PA CDC.
