Cross Country (Grades 3-5)

About Cross Country

Cross-Country is open to boys and girls in 3rd - 5th grade. The season begins on Monday, September 11th and will run for six weeks. Students will run a one-mile course. Teams will be formed at each elementary school that have enough participants registered to field a team and where a volunteer coach is available. In the event of low enrollment or lack of a volunteer coach, schools may be combined and/or refunds may be given. You will be contacted by the LEAP Office in the event of low enrollment for your school.

Season Start & End Dates

Monday, September 11th, 2017 - Thursday, October 19th, 2017.

Practice Schedule

Practice will run 1-3 days per week after school at each home school. Exact practice days and times will be determined by the availability of the volunteer coach and will not be known until a coach is in place. Schedules vary from school to school. Following the close of registration, your student’s coach will contact you regarding a more detailed schedule.
