North High Cross Country
A HUGE thank you to all of the families and athletes who supported the Fireworks Fundraiser. You all did wonderful and I received many compliments on your professionalism, hard work, and commitment to your team. I am truly grateful to be a part of your XC family.
Welcome to the 2018-19 Cross Country season!
OFFICIAL PRACTICE - starts August 13th, 2018 at 3:30pm and ends at 5:30pm. We will practice every weekday. Meet back by the south side of the track. Any changes due to the Heat Plan will be communicated via Remind. Please sign up. See below.
REQUIREMENTS TO PARTICIPATE
You will need a completed physical form, concussion form, blue card, and Pay to Play. Pick up a physical form from Coach Nigg, Coach Bookout, or Coach Church so you have the form that includes the concussion form on it. Blue Cards will be given the first week of practice and will need completed by your parents. Pay to Play can be completed during enrollment by visiting Lori Smith the Bookkeeper in office A105. This must be completed prior to competition and will cover you for the school year and any sports your participate in.
You also need to maintain good academic standing. If you are on the D and F list then you will be required to attend tutoring and communicate with your coaches and teachers what plan you have to raise your grade. If you are unable to make progress on your own, then practice time will be offered for you to receive additional help or attend tutoring or study hall. We are of the opinion that you are a student first. Being a student-athlete is a balance of your time and energy. Cross country is an extra-curricular activity and does not come before your education.
Sping semester of 2018 students must pass five .5 credit classes (totalling 2.5 credits) to be eiligible for the Fall 2018 season. Tower Time and Advocacy do not count towards eligibility.
Extended learning credits DO NOT count towards eligibility.
