In order for a student to compete in a cross country race they must have participated in at least 14 practices, students cannot practice until their properly completed physical is turned in.

**WHS and WMS cross country team members also need the following for practice on a daily basis: proper athletic clothes, good running shoes, & a water bottle.

Practices: The first practice for high school will be Monday August 9th from 7am-8:30am. Students will walk to the football field concession stand and will need to be picked up at that location following practice. A practice of date, times,and locations will be given to team members at practice when complete.

The first middle school practice will be on Monday August 16th from 6:30am-8am at the Washington track concession stand.

We accept middle school students at any time during the first few weeks of school, but they still must have 14 practices before they may compete. Practices are mandatory; exceptions can be made with advance notice.

Meets: The school supplies team members with uniforms. Our competition races are normally around 1.5 miles. We compete in races that have as few as 30 competitors and as many 150.
