    Invite  your favorite teachers, family and friends to come support the Warrior XC team!  We hope to have t-shirt gifts to give to the teachers that attend.  Members of the community will join XC teams from the area for a fun run and each team will collect donations at the end of the run



    You must be ASAA eligible to travel (PlanetHS completed, grades OK) and fees paid.  If you travel you WILL race.  If you don’t have 10 practices you may still travel, but you will run in the Community Race.  This will give you a practice and an opportunity to see travel expectations.


    It is very important to fuel yourself in a proper manner during away trips.  We expect you to drink adequate amounts of water and eat healthy.  Sugary snacks and empty carbs are not appropriate for athletic trips.  We are in season and expect you to take responsibility for elements you can control such as your diet.  No energy drinks!  Please, bring food from home if you think you will have a hard time making healthy choices - just be aware that you will not have a fridge or stove.


    Be respectful of all persons and property during our trip.  Use kind words and tones.  We are guests at the school, leave all property alone.  Leave your area clean.  Let a coach know if any issues arise immediately!!!


    Students will be turning in their cell phones at night.  If you need to get in contact, please use my cell phone information:
