First, Cross Country is for everyone. Every athlete will be equally valued regardless of their ability and they will participate in most of our meets. Also, performance will be stressed over place, improvement will be stressed over winning, and personal records will be stressed over points.
Second, Cross Country is rewarding. Every athlete will be challenged to improve physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally because emphasis will be put on our team norms of commitment, collaboration, courage, and class. As a result, their lives will be positively impacted now and in the future.
Third, Cross Country is a family. Every athlete will be involved in lots of different activities and extraordinary team camaraderie will develop over time. In addition, parents will be highly encouraged to cheer at meets, help with fundraisers, and provide nutritional items.
