Parents/Athlete,

Thank you for your interest in participating on the Cross Country team. Parents, it is important that your son or daughter attend all conditioning practices and regular season practices. Please contact me as soon as possible if they will not be attending. A simple text message is fine. Before July 31st  all athletes must have a current physical, participation fees and consent/release form turned into the school or me before you can start practice. You can find these forms on our school website here.

Summer conditioning (Must have current physical) will be on Tuesday and Friday, starting June 6th

  • Every Tuesday conditioning is 5:30-7pm at Starkey Park.
  • Every Friday conditioning is 7:30-9am at Starkey Park.

I will send out a remind text if I have to cancel so please make sure you sign up for these messages.  

  • Regular practice begins July 31st
  • Practice: Monday – Friday, 2pm – 4pm
  • Meet at high school stadium near the picnic tables.
  • Practice starts at 2:15 sharp, so be on time. 

Meet schedule is still a work in progress. Schools are just now starting to post their meets online and I will have one for you as soon as possible. Meets are usually held on Saturday mornings. Bussing is only provided if out of county or east of US 41 for in county meets. It’s important that students have reliable transportation to and from local meets.

I strongly recommend you start running over the summerThis will help prevent injuries and give you a head start over your competition. Use Active.com, coolrunning.com or flrunners.com to find at least ONE race to compete in this summer.

Communication

The best way for me to get messages out to all the team members is using a program called Remind.  Athletes and parents should sign up to receive text or email alerts from me. To register for these alerts simply text @coachmccar to the following phone # 81010.  (make sure you text @coachmccar , the missing “t” in McCart is not a mistake).

Looking forward to another wonderful season. I really appreciate parent involvement it means a lot to me and to your athletes. We will be doing some fundraising this year to help pay for our entry fees and new uniforms. If any parents could help we are planning on selling advertisement spots on our cross-country banner that will go with us to each meet. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions please feel free to contact me.
