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.


Cross Country Tryouts, What is Required in Advance to Prepare, and Ticket to Play

Summer Workouts – What You NEED to Do

  • Scheduled summer workouts are not mandatory but would be good to attend.
    • June 25, 26, 27- 7-8:30 AM at Bass Lake, Upper Entrance (not lake entrance)  WE WILL MEET AT THE FRONT OF MIDDLE CREEK HS THESE DAYS AS PARK WILL NOT BE OPEN EARLY ENOUGH FOR PRACTICE
    • July 24 -7-8:30 AM at MCHS, back entrance of track by Community Center
  • All athletes will be required to present a running log (signed by a parent) on the first day of tryouts. Athletes should be running 3.5 miles without stopping by August 1. Record day, distance, time, parent signature.  Stapled sheets of paper are fine – no need to purchase a special notebook. It will be obvious if you trained over the summer or not.
  • Athletes should be running a weekly total of 25-30 miles by August 1 with one day of mandatory rest (i.e., no running). Getting in shape prior to August 1 will help reduce injuries, as well as you will start the season conditioned.  We do not have time for you to start getting into shape once the season starts.  Preparing in advance will make you successful.
  • Athletes MUST have a current physical on file in order to participate – you can hand in on the first day you attend. Forms available on Middle Creek’s home page, click on Athletics and click on Participating Forms.
  • Ticket to Play is required for tryouts. The dates are:
    • July 29 from 10am-noon, MCHS Commons
    • July 30 from 5-7pm, MCHS Commons
    • July 31 from 10am-noon, MCHS Commons

Mandatory Tryouts and Practice

  • Tryouts are  August 5 -7 (Monday - Wednesday) from 5-6:30 PM.  Any athlete wanting to run for Middle Creek MUST attend. We will meet at the MCHS track - back entrance (Community Center side).
