Varsity Cross Country
All athletes and their parents are required to review the attached presentation once per year, and to submit ONLY the last page, completed and signed, to Coach Gilchrist prior to tryouts.
This is the information covered at the 7/31 Pre-Season meeting.
Cross Country Information Packet- This is an introductory packet for all members, including information on forms due, summer training, coaches contact info, tryouts and other cross country references.
Cross Country Meet/Practice Schedule- This lists all dates/times for August practices, meets, and other team events. Please put them on your calendar now. We do acknowledge that there may be changes, however, due to any VHSL restrictions made due to COVID-19. We will adapt as needed.
Please use this VHSL physical form for all athletic physicals, and submit it prior to the first practice.
All athletes must submit an Emergency Care Card once per year.
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.
This packet explains some of the different types of workouts we do, the training stages of the cross country season and the benefits for a cross country runner.
We will allow juniors and seniors to drive to certain local practices and meets, with parental consent, assuming their are licensed drivers. They may only drive themselves, or a sibling (w/parental consent). At no time may another student drive a teammate. (NOTE: This applies to meets/practices that we have a bus to anyways....not to a practice at Manassas Battlefield, Lees Corner, or Walney Pond). Driving to meets will be at the discretion of Coach G.
