Middle School Cross Country
Fall 2018 Season
In middle school cross country, we focus on the fundamentals of running, technique, and safety. We take a growth mindset approach to the sport -- everyone has the ability to make improvements, no matter where they are starting. We will utlize lots of training techniques including distance runs, speed work, and cross training. We will gradually increase distances as the weeks progress, eventually reaching the two mile distance that athletes will run in meets. The meet schedule will be announced after it is set, but expect to participate in three-four meets during the season, beginning towards the end of September or early October.
Truman students will practice twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school until 4:00pm. The first day of practice is September 4th. Students should dress appropriately (including sneakers) and meet us under field pavilion for the first practice. And always bring water to practice!
Registration will open soon. Complete your registration online before the first practice to ensure that you get important announcements and information about upcoming meets. Questions? Contact Coach Baumgartner, ext. 7471 or Coach Dudley, ext. 7181
