It is fine if a person is unable to attend the first practices, registration will stay open. About Middle School Cross Country—The goal is to foster a love of running! Preteens are developing physically at all different rates. Many boys and girls will have growth spurts this year or next. Over use of any muscles is the greatest cause of injury, therefore we will be varying the workouts to build strong muscles, endurance, and increase speed.
We will talk about nutrition, especially eating healthy and drinking plenty of water daily.
We will learn the importance of stretching before and after a run.
We will foster teamwork – running together, cheering each other on, and celebrating all of our individual and team accomplishments.
