Cross Country Program

Welcome to PVYA Cross Country!



The Cross Country program had its start in 1985.
Cross Country is an endurance running sport that takes place on prescribed courses over fields and grass areas.
Practice begins in late August and the season runs through November 1st, this is a fall sport open to all area boys and girls grades 1-8.
We will want to start CC on Monday Aug. 17th and use Catoctin Nature Park for the start.

We will do 3 nights a week until Othello is ready and then shift to that park 2 nights a week.

5:45 pm- 7:00 pm
A series of weekend meets is offered in the area.  PVYA host its own home meet also.   Registration is done in person at the first 2 practice sessions.
Cross Country stresses personal improvement while teaching the basic skills of distance running.  It has life long value of fitness and working together while having fun and meeting new friends.  It leads into a very successful high school program and is a great way to build speed and endurance for winter sports.
We are still planning for 2020 at this time, please contact coach Zumbach at 301-834-8045 or email [email protected]
