Running with PRIDE

Our Cross Country program develops students through the Portola High School PRIDE values: perseverance, respect, integrity, drive, and empathy.

Cross Country is a fall sport for Boys and Girls with a tremendous amount of fun, challenges, family support, and friendship. We have three levels of competition: Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Frosh-Soph. We are in the Pacific Coast League along with the other high schools in the City of Irvine: Beckman, Irvine, Northwood, Woodbridge, and University.

Cross Country is a six-day-per-week commitment with practices and meets. Practices during the school year are 2:15 – 4:30 p.m. Competitions are on various Thursday and Friday afternoons, and Saturday mornings.

Tryouts and regular team practices begin the first week of August. The regular racing season starts the first week of September and goes through the first week of November. The league and state championship competitions continue through the end of November.

We offer a Summer Cross Country Skills Camp in July to prepare our athletes for the rigors of Cross Country. Camp is a great way to improve running skills or try a new sport, build personal character, make new friends, and have fun.

We are very passionate about running, teamwork, character development, and inspiring others to do their best. We hope you are interested in being part of this experience.
