Best place to find XC information

This webpage.  Once the team is selected, I will also set up a remind text app for students to subscribe to for latest updates and reminders.  So please bookmark this site.

Mission

To develop a successful Cross Country program (academically and athletically).  This will be accomplished by: 

  • Teamwork 
  • Responsibility  
  • Good work ethic  
  • Honesty 
  • Dedication 
  • Discipline

With this commitment come rewards.  My hope is all XC athletes experience personal growth as a runner and a student.

“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”

    • Rule of thumb – keep all Saturdays in September and first few in October reserved for XC.

August 29, 2016 – First day of school.

  • Practice is 2:45-5 PM unless otherwise noted.  We will practice off site several times.  

Mandatory Tryouts and Practice – August 1, 2016, 7-9 AM

  • Tryouts are August 1-3.  Any athletes wanting to run for Middle Creek must attend all 3 days.
  • From August 1-18, practice will be 7-9 AM.  Athletes should be at practice every day.  We will also practice on Saturday at different locations.
  • We will not practice August 19th.
  • August 22-26 practice will be from either 2:45-5 or 6-8 PM.  I will make sure everyone knows once a decision is made.

Summer Workouts- July 11-15 and July 25-28, 2016

  • Not mandatory.    
  • You MUST have a current physical on file in order to participate – you can hand in on the first day you attend.
  • Meet at Middle Creek HS (at the back of the school’s football stadium entrance) on July 11.  A list of offsite locations will be provided at this time for the two weeks of workouts.
  • Practice is 7-9 AM.  Practice will end at 9 AM.  Please note, if we are running late, it will only be by a few minutes, as we do need to do core and stretch before practice ends.   
  • Weight room twice a week.  All athletes, if attending workouts and if they make the team, are expected to lift.  This is to build lean muscle mass, not bulk up.
  • All athletes are expected to run on their own prior to mandatory tryouts.
  • Cross Country camp is not required; however, it is a wonderful opportunity to train in the mountains.  You can find camp details and register at www.crosscountrycamp.com.  The week MCHS XC runners are attending is Week 2 – July 17-22.

CROSS COUNTRY CAMP JULY 2016

If you are planning on attending XC Camp, I have reserved Week 2, July 17-22, for MCHS XC.  Camp registration will open in February.  When you register, please identify yourself as attending as part of Middle Creek XC.  The web site is http://www.crosscountrycamp.com
 
Remember, attending camp is optional.  We will have summer workouts too.  More on that when we get closer to summer.
