Varsity Cross Country
2017 Cross Country Forms & Signup Information Packet- Please read carefully and heed all items (ie: completing Athlete and Parent Info Surveys online, and turning in all forms on time.
This is all forms and information regarding our team camp, from August 14th-17th. This is a very important event, and considered to be an expectation for all members, but limited to the first 60 athletes.
Please submit this form to Dr. Gilchrist, indicating that you have made your order online, or that you are not making any purchase. Spirit Pack purchases must be made online at: CHS Cross Country Online Store. (http://stores.inksoft.com/Chantilly_Cross_Country/All-Products/-1)
All athletes must submit an Emergency Care Card once per year.
Please use this VHSL physical form for all athletic physicals, and submit it prior to the first practice.
Please keep in mind that your summer conditioning is KEY to a successful season. Start NOW....but start with week 1....no shortcuts to building fitness. We hope to see you at conditioning in July, on Monday & Wednesday (7 am) at CHS, Thursdays (7 am) at Walney Pond (EC Lawrence Park), and Fridays (7 am) at Lees Corner Elementary.
This is aimed more for advanced runners, from July 23-28. It is certainly suggested, but not required.
Written by Hall of Fame Coach Barry Mensh, this packet explains some of the different types of workouts we do, and the benefits for a cross country runner.

This has all of our dates, times and locations for practices and meets throughout the pre-season and regular season. Please set them aside ASAP.
Please check to see if you owe any forms still. If a certain column is colored, you have not turned in that form. If there is a notation, you are missing part of the form (ie: Insurance Info for the Physical; or the Luggage Search form for Camp). If it says $ Needed, that is self-explanatory (re: camp). Most of these forms are self-explanatory. The Athlete Info, & Parent Info, are online surveys, and can be accessed above.Please fill these out completely. If you believe that this is in error, bring it to my attention, but I would still prefer that you simply print out the form again, and re-sign it. I will admit to any error I make, but when it comes down to it, if your form is missing, it is missing. Please get them in ASAP.
Please review to make sure you understand what is expected of you, from the July 29th, 2017 Pre-Season Meeting.
