Cross Country Fast Facts for Runners and Parents:

All students must have a physical examination form completed and on file in the athletic office before they will be permitted to practice or participate on any team at Gatewood Schools, Inc.

Practice will begin at 3:15 pm and we will meet on the track.  A practice schedule will be posted on Heja on a weekly basis.  You are allowed to change clothes in the track field house and you may leave your bags there during practice.  We will practice two to three times a week as a team and you are expected to complete two additional independent activities each week.

Parents – We encourage participation from parents.  Feel free to bring healthy snacks and drinks to our meets.  We will also coordinate transportation to and from meets.  The farthest we will travel is an hour away so transportation should not be an issue.

Expected Costs – Each family is required to join the booster club.  You will also need to purchase trail shoes, practice shorts and shirts, water bottles, and a watch to keep up with your time.  We will also have a custom-designed 2023 XC shirt to purchase for $20.

Updates – You can always check the Gatewood website for news and updates to the schedule but the best way to keep up with the 2023 XC teams is to like our Facebook group called Gatewood XC and also follow us on Twitter at @xcgators.  I will put updates out there and any other important info you may need.
