Cross Country Player/Parent meeting

Students in grades 6-8 for cross country.

There will be a Player/Parent meeting held on Thursday, August 21st at 5:30 for parents and players to meet the coaches and sign-up to run. We will need parents to sign up at this meeting to volunteer to help with meets, carpools, etc. Any help given to the team will also count towards the schools required 40 volunteer hours. Practices will start the following Monday, the 25th at 3:15-5:00 pm. Student will need to have a parent with them at this meeting to sign medical release forms and the player and parent contracts. Students will not be allowed to practice or participate without these filled out and turned in.

MMA Cross Country runners will be learning about good running techniques, proper nutrition, proper stretching/warm-ups, self-motivation, goal setting, and good sportsmanship while focusing on building a feeling of support and community and most importantly having a blast! There is a $65 Pay-to-Play fee. Come learn more and have your questions answered at the meeting!
