Welcome to the MYAA Cross Country program.  This program was newly formed in 2012 and it was received with a wonderful response from the community.  This program is designed to encourage kids in grades K-6 to be active and develop an enjoyment of running. 
There are three different locations to choose from for your convenience.  The North region practices at Scott Park and Browns Farm.  The West region practices at Asbury Elementary School and Browns Farm.  The East region practices at Chestnut Hill. 
There will be several meets for the runners to compete throughout the season.  There will also be a championship meet at Browns Farm at the end of the season. Program will run from early August to mid October.  Practices will be 3 times per week.  Weekday practices will be in the evening.  Saturday practices will be in the morning.  The kids will be divided into age appropriate groups for practices and meets.  A meet schedule will be provided. 
The age of the runners will determine the distance they race in the meets.  Kindergarten and first graders will race .5 mile.  Second and third graders will race 1 mile.  Fourth, fifth and sixth graders will race 1.5 miles.  Practices will run approximately an hour and will take place three days a week.  Each practice will have a warm up, and runners will practice their home meet course.  It is strongly recommended that the kids have a water bottle with them at ALL practices and meets. 
If you are interested in helping to coach this program, please let us know.  We are always looking for good volunteers.
