Cross Country

$100 registration for all grades 5-8. Registration fee includes uniform (tank and shorts). Late registrations incur a $50 fee and are at the coach’s discretion.
We never want any child to not join a team because of the cost. If you need a reduction in fees, please contact our Business Manager at 773-743-6277.
Optional summer training begins late July. This is a great opportunity for new runners to gauge their interest. Mandatory time trials are in late August. Athletes and one parent/guardian must attend. While the athletes complete their time trials, coaches will meet with the parents to discuss the season, practices, and meets. Time trials will place your athlete in the appropriate pace group for the season.
Official practices start late August after school begins. Practices are held Monday-Thursday after school (at the MS campus). Athletes are required to attend at least two practices per week in order to participate in the meets. We generally participate in six meets throughout the fall season. Athletes are required to attend at least four meets.
