Welcome to PVYA Cross Country!

PVYA YOUTH CROSS COUNTRY

Cross Country is an endurance based running sports program, open to all area boys and girls ages 7 -14.

The program has been a PVYA sport since 1985, offering both competition and physical fitness that helps in all sports and teaches the principles of this lifelong activity.

This year, the program will use a "hybrid" approach, offering several meets, several Personal Improvement measuring nights, training and a games approach to running.   

Registration is done in person at the first 4 offered practices.  Aug. 23, Aug. 25, Aug. 30, Sept. 2.  Registration will close after the final registration date of Sept. 2.   Registration is $20 per athlete, with a family rate offered.  A team shirt is offered to those who do not have a shirt from last year.

The team will practice 2 nights per week and encourage parents to help by offering an additional personal night of practice.

Practices will take place on the Middle and High School Cross Country course that begins near the parking area of Brunswick Middle School.  Practice will begin at 5:45 pm and end by 6:45 pm.  The program will also use some practice nights at Catoctin Nature Park trails later in the season.

The team is coached by experienced head coaches, Lee & Anne Zumbach with assistance from several excellent parent coaches.  Parent help at practice is always welcome and encouraged.

Athletes should come to practice with a running shoe and a bottle of water.  No prior experience is needed and new runners are more than welcome.
