Boys & Girls High School Cross Country Team


Any 8th Grade student who is interested in joining the Boys & Girls High School Cross Country team next school year can attend pre-season conditioning after school on the following dates: 

Monday, May 15
Wednesday, May 17
Monday, May 22 (with Parent meeting to follow from 4:00 to 5:00)

No previous running experience is necessary.  All ability and interest levels are welcome to give this sport a try.  Everyone makes the high school team.  There are no try-outs.  There are no cuts.  And, athletes are permitted to participate in another Fall Sport such as soccer, football, cheerleading, or volleyball during the Cross Country season.  Members of last year's high school team will be on hand to help the new runners learn about proper stretching techniques, running form, safety precautions and answer any questions that you might have about the sport.

We will meet from 3:00 to 4:00 at the Ticket Booth near the Track.  Be sure to arrange for a ride home at 4:00.  Students should bring water & their running shoes.  If you have any questions, email Coach Smith at jsmith@avonworth.k12.pa.us
