Will there be Cross Country in Fall 2021?
Yes, we are planning to hold a regular season in fall 2021. All coaches and trainers are fully vaccinated. We will follow the guidance from Loudoun PRCS, LCPS, and VHSL as the determining factor for how the season is structured.
Health guidelines for DYS Cross Country will be posted online.
What about fees?
150 for the season. In the event there are competitive meets to go to, uniforms will be required at an additional minor cost.
What does my runner need to bring to practices and meets?
Runners should have a good pair of running shoes, a water bottle labelled with a name and layers depending on weather. Depending on the course, long socks and bug spray are a good idea as well.
Is it mandatory to attend both practices each week?
We realize that this may be a 2nd sport for many of our runners and, therefore, like to keep the program flexible. Although 2 practices a week are recommended, it is not required in order to participate in the meets. If you know that your runner will consistently not be able to attend one of the weekly practices, please let the coaches know in advance.
What happens in inclement weather?
