Cross country ground: running on grass, dirt, hills etc…
What to wear: dress for the weather! We will work up a sweat every practice! Running sneakers are highly recommended. Many varieties available at local shoe/sports stores. The Velcro strap running shoe is great especially for the younger kids!
What to bring: A full water bottle, bug spray, & ANY MEDICAL NEEDS/DEVICES such as INHALERS FOR ASTHMA RUNNERS!
What to expect: we will warm together, then run in groups based on age, developmental ability & skill. EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT! We work to meet each child’s individual potential. We do not encourage comparing one runner to another & although we do compete, our team is really focused on development, teamwork & fun!
Flexible: If you can make both practices, great!!!! If you are in another sport & can only do 1 practice, that is fine too! We will send out some guidelines to run on your own as well on the days we don’t practice.
**HAVE YOUR CHILD GO POTTY BEFORE PRACTICE** Of course we will escort them if they need to go ;o)
