Glendora Cross Country

No Fear No Pain No Defeat

Glendora Cross Country - No Fear  No Pain  No Defeat

The 2014 XC Season Starts… TODAY!

You want to run cross country.

We’re an excellent team – our boys and girls (3 times) are defending league champs.  Both teams were CIF Finalists last year (boys for the 4th consecutive season).  We’re also one of the most inclusive teams on campus, there are no cuts and no bench in our sport – everyone races.

It takes quite a bit of training to get good at our sport, so we begin practice at the start of the summer.  While you can join the team when school starts, you’ll be missing out on the best opportunity to improve (and a bunch of the fun) if you don’t start training in June.  We train 5-6 days a week in the summer and in the school year, and most of our competitions are on Saturdays in September and October.

Key Details

 

Summer Training Camp - Begins Monday June 30th for all athletes.  Cost is $100 which covers coaching and training expenses.  Details…

  • We train 5-6 days a week, and varsity athletes will have some double days.  (For practice schedule and locations, click HERE)

Mammoth High Altitude Training Camp - Sunday, July 27 – Sunday, August 3.  Cost is $400 inclusive – transportation, lodging, food and a training shirt – if paid by 7/18.  Late fees apply if payment is not received by the due date.  This camp gives us a chance to focus on being athletes and to get in a block of hard training.  Because our team is getting bigger, and there are a limited number of spots in the condos, and because the team is getting better, so the training is getting harder, there are some minimum requirements to attend…

  • The camp is not mandatory but is strongly encouraged, especially for varsity athletes
  • First year athletes are encouraged to take part, but they must meet basic fitness and training requirements.
  • Returning athletes also need to meet the fitness and attendance requirements.
  • All attendees MUST have the physical packet completed and turned in to Mrs Kirwin or Coach Kaitlyn (they will copy and deliver to Athletics Office) by July 21.
