PRACTICE EXPECTATIONS


  • Be prepared. Every athlete should have warm clothes, running shoes, and rain gear in your locker. If you do not have appropriate clothes for the weather, you will not participate in practice. Therefore, you need to be prepared for anything.

  • Be at practice. Do not get into the habit of missing practice to hang out with your friends, finish a project, or do homework. These are all excuses. You will have friends in cross-country. If you do not show up for practice, you are letting down your teammates and friends. School is more important than cross-country, but you should plan ahead to get your work done ahead of time. When you are on cross-country, you are different because you are part of a team. Your conduct and academic expectations are higher.  

  • If you need to miss practice, please come and talk to Mrs. Peake before practice.

  • If you make a habit of missing practice, you will not be on the cross-country team.

  • Do not goof around before practice.


DISCIPLINE


  • All athletic code rules apply.

  • If you are sent home from practice for inappropriate behavior, you will miss the next meet.


The most important piece of equipment for a cross country athlete are shoes. A good pair of running shoes is the best way to prevent injury. Do not get shoes based on how they look. Instead, you should get the shoes that feel the best to you. I would go to a running shoe store.  They can fit your foot the best.
