A hearty welcome to all the students that plan to participate in cross country racing. I look forward to accelerating you to your highest potential to best position you to compete at the highest level. Students are expected to report for tryouts in shape and prepared to train. Athletes must get a pre-sports physical and get all the required forms completed and signed prior to trying out for the team. Contact the cross country coach, Coach Bovan, at your earliest convenience about paper work required in order to participate in tryouts. The Remind code for cross country is @e466k7.
There will be an information meeting Friday 8/13/21 from 3:30pm - 4:00pm in Coach Bovan's classroom (Room 710). If you have already joined the cross country Remind group and attended the Microsoft Teams meeting last week, you do not have to attend this meeting: the same information will be provided. The meeting will provide general information and answer questions students may have prior to joining the cross country team.
Pre-workouts and conditioning will be held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays starting Tuesday 8/17/21. The cross country team will consist of two groups this year: Team A and Team B. Team A members will be athletes who are already running miles and familiar with the mechanics of running. Team B is for introducing new members to running. It will involve a slower progression and not expect members to run the same distances as Team A. The objective is encourage more students to get involved and promote greater physical well-being through running.
Most importantly click on the "forms" link above to obtain the forms and physical paperwork that needs to be completed and in the coach's possession prior to attending ANY school workouts or training.
Competing at the highest level is not about winning. It's about preparation, courage, understanding and nurturing your people, and heart. Winning is the result. Joe Torre
