Cross Country Team Camp 1:  July 19 - 23, 2020 - Registration closed! 

Cross Country Team Camp 2 :  July 26 - 30, 2020 - Registration closed! 


The camp week will be designed to enhance the team concept of cross country. There will be presentations on training, psychology, diet, goal setting (individual and team), motivational and inspirational lectures. There will be discussions that promote successful team attitudes, preparations for championship seasons and development of a successful program in general for those just starting out. 

The area in which your athletes will train will be motivational in itself. You will have ample opportunity for meetings, time for team sessions, and be in an atmosphere of idea sharing. There will be special “coaches only” sessions where coaches can discuss specific problems and general seminars where your questions can be studied in a forum environment. Your team will be housed together in the residence hall and you will be in charge of all training sessions. You must provide your own transportation. This is one way we can hold down the cost of camp. At the end of the week, we will conduct a two-mile cross country race to get those competitive juices flowing, with awards being presented. 

Only teams that bring five or more athletes will be eligible for the camp. This means there must be either five or more male team members and/or five or more female team members. The head coach or assistant coach officially recognized by the school must accompany the athletes. Parents, friends, etc., will not be allowed to bring a team and act as the coach. Also, all the athletes listed for a school unit must attend that school. 

Guidelines for Attending
1- Coach must come with a team and only teams are eligible. (Individuals cannot form a team). *

*When considering the level of supervision for youth, we require a minimum of 1 supervisor per 8 campers for children ages 9-14; and 1 supervisor per 10 campers for children ages 15-18.
