The AL Middle School Cross Country Team is open to 6th-8th grade boys and girls. The season starts August 1 with the first practice and ends with the Championship Meet October 24. There are no tryouts. Meets are primarily on Mondays after school for a total of six meets plus a League Championship meet. Our first meet is September 7.
Middle School Team practice begins Tuesday, August 1st, with two weeks of daily conditioning practices 5 pm-6 pm (M-T-W-Th-F) and 4:30-5:30 pm on Sundays just until the start of school (not mandatory but attend if able). Practice locations will vary to challenge and inspire. Starting Aug 16, middle school practices will be 3:45-5:00 pm at Holmes Park M & W and either 8-9 am Saturdays or 4:30-5:30 pm on Sundays at revolving courses.
A meet schedule will be posted as soon as it is received from the league.
Registration for the Middle School Team is now open until August 8, 2017.
4th and 5th Grade Long Distance Training
In addition, we offer a Long Distance Training Program to 4th-5th graders that will meet after school from 3:45-5:00 pm on Tuesdays starting September 5 to introduce them to the basics and train them for the Allez 5K. There are no external meets for 4th-5th graders. They will have a mock meet at Holmes Park toward the end of the season. Online registration will open on August 11.
