Most of this is done online, at the Centaurus Athletics Website. This must be completed before you are able to participate in any official team practice.

All athletes and parents MUST be on the Cross Country team email list. The email list will be the official means of communication.  To Sign Up, CLICK HERE



Recent Announcements

  • CHS XC and T&F- status of IRONMAN events

    Dear past and current CHS Track and XC athletes and families,

    (This email is going out to multiple email lists- apologies if you get this more than once. This is the last "blast" to everyone. All future info regarding Ironman volunteering will be communicated via the official email lists, which you can sign up for below)

    I'm proud to report that, due to the amazing number of sign ups on the interest forms, we will be working the biggest aid station at the biggest Ironman, on Aug 3rd!! Coach Kaitlin (currently an assistant coach for track) will be the volunteer captain for that event.

    As planned, we will also be working the smaller but equally as important Sprint, Peak, and 70.3 events.

    The Details (for all events, including the Full Ironman):
    The website (www.centaurustrack.org/ironman) has been updated with information, shift times, and locations for all the events, including official online waiver forms that must be filled out by ALL volunteers (this also ensures we receive the grant from the Ironman Foundation). This form will also add you to an official email list, so that you receive all the detailed information (parking passes, when/where to meet, what to bring/wear/etc.) leading up to the event. Lastly, you are able to chose the size of your volunteer t-shirt. So, it is very important that everyone fill out the waiver!

    To fill out the waiver, go here and scroll down: www.centaurustrack.org/ironman

    Please pass on this information to anyone you have recruited, to ensure they will get all the info as the event approaches.

    Great work team. Go Warriors!!!
