2019 Cross Country Information
Cross Country is open to all grade levels and provides a great opportunity to get involved, stay active, and to be a part of a competitive team.
Practices typically take place from 3:30 until 5:00 at Sandburg. All grade levels practice together. Students are expected to show up to each practice and participate in all activities. If there is an emergency or a reason why a student will not be at practice, coaches should be notified.
Each meet will take place at a school in DuPage County. They will begin around 4:15 and are either about 1.5 or 2.0 miles. The order of the races are typically 6th/7th grade girls, 6th/7th grade boys, 8th grade girls, and then 8th grade boys. After having a parent/guardian sign them out, runners can leave when they have completed their race. If needed they can stay and ride the bus back to Sandburg with the coaches. The bus will leave the meet around 6:00 PM after the 8th grade races.
Listed below are the three requirements that need to have taken place in order for students to participate in August.
