Cross Country

Welcome to Middle School Lightning XC!

More info on the 2020/2021 XC season below!

This is the page for Normal Park's Middle School Cross Country team. We strive to provide 6-8th grade boys and girls the opportunity to develop their athletic ability and teamwork through the process of practicing and competing in the ISC (Independent School Conference) division. Middle School runners run a 2 mile course, and must have a current physical submitted through Dragonfly.

Join us weekly as we build the team and work on speed and endurance. To be able to participate in practices and races, each runner must be able to run a minimum of 10 minutes consecutively at their own pace. IT WILL BE HOT! Be prepared with a water bottle, sunglasses, and hat if needed. Return registration form below before Friday 8/14/20 or send registration info. via e-mail to moore_daniel@hcde.org. Join Remind (use code @a8cab9) and the Facebook page (NPMM Middle School Cross Country) and check the site often to stay updated with information.

Don't let our first practice be your first practice! Run on your own now to prepare your body for the workouts we'll be doing in August- shoot for 20 solid minutes of running at least 4 days/week!

Support the team!! This is huge. It's not always easy to get kids to meets- they are across town and start right after school, so if you can carpool or help provide a ride please do! I also ask that we get there in time to cheer on & inspire our elementary team as they run just before we do.
All athletes are asked to provide a $50 lightning athletic fee (payable via NP site) and I'll also be scheduling days we can volunteer to work the concession stand- a portion of the sales goes back to our team.
Additionally- any parent that wants to join us on a run is welcome! It's always helpful to have additional adults since we are venturing throughout the neighborhood on practice runs.

Our Coaches- Mr. Moore and Ms. Carlton work together to manage the team, hold practices, and attend meets. We share the common goal of helping students learn to love exercise, build kinesthetic awareness, and become physically and mentally healthy individuals.
Many other sports and activities can overlap with cross country. We ask that runners attend all 3 practices per week unless special arrangements are made, and optional Saturday runs will also be scheduled as we get closer to competition.
Additionally, we expect that team mates maintain a 3.0 or better gpa and stellar discipline record.

All regular season meets take place at Woodland Park Baptist Church
6735 Standifer Gap Road
Middle School Girls run at 5:25
Middle School Boys run at 5:55

Please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Moore with any questions or concerns at moore_daniel@hcde.org
