Cross Country Information
I am pleased that you have expressed interest in running Cross Country for James Madison this fall. We hope to build on the success our program had last year in which our girls placed 1st in the City Championships while our boys placed 3rd. 

We will practice every Monday-Thursday from 3:45-5:25, with our first practice on Monday August 26th. Our meet schedule has not been finalized as of now, but will be available by the first practice. In order to participate, each athlete must have a completed and current physical. In addition, athletes must have at least a 2.0 GPA from the 4th 9 weeks of the previous year and only one “3” for citizenship. There will be a mandatory parent meeting on Thursday, August 29th after practice at 5:25 in the gym. If a parent/guardian is unable to attend the parent meeting, they must arrange a meeting with Coach Wilder before their athlete can participate. 

Athletes should have running/tennis shoes, as well as weather appropriate gym wear for all practices. While there are water fountains, it would be easier if athletes could bring their own water bottles.
