2019 High School XC Info Meeting


High School – Thursday 4/18 2:15p (during enrichment) in HS cafeteria

Note: Attending the meeting DOES NOT commit you to run this fall!!

Informational meetings for the upcoming 2019 Viking Cross Country season will be held during enrichment on Thursday April 18th in the cafeteria.  Information will be provided for voluntary summer training, group runs, summer camp and a preliminary meet schedule for the fall.  While mandatory practices don’t start until August, getting started in May will give you a tremendous advantage in getting the most out of your fall season.  We’ll also discuss opportunities to run this summer as conditioning for other sports, as well as options for athletes that may be interested in dual sport participation.

We welcome students of all abilities, from gym class superstars to those who haven’t run farther than the end of the driveway.  We’ll work with everyone individually to help you be the best runner you can be. Come run with us!
