MS Cross Country

MS Cross Country

Welcome to the 2018 season of Middle School Cross Country.

Medical: You must have a completed Medical Form and Master Information Form on file before you are able to participate in any Overlake sport.

Turnouts: Turnouts will be 3:15-4:30 on the first day of school – Monday, August 27th on Field 4 behind the gym. Additional practices that week will be Tuesday and Wednesday.  Please come prepared to run, wearing a t-shirt, shorts, socks and running shoes. Make sure to bring a water bottle!

Season: MS Cross Country will practice Monday/Tuesday/Thursday. Families will receive additional information from the coaches about the season after turnouts.

Attendance: Our program is built around our student-athletes' commitment to their teams. All athletes are expected to attend all practices and meets. It is important to know that out-of-school activities (music lessons, tutor sessions, religion classes, club sport practices, etc.) are not excusable. Academic responsibilities such as homework are expected of each athlete and therefore are not a reason to miss athletics. Missing two practices that are unexcused will result in sitting out a meet. A third missed practice may result in removal from the team. We do understand that there are events which may result in your child missing practice or a meet. Please let the coaches know in advance and do your best to schedule doctor appointments on non-activity days.

Coaches Dave Parsons and Margaret Marks are looking forward to a fun season with everyone!
