2017-2018 Cross Country Information

Dear Parents and Runners,
Welcome to another school year and exciting season of Hudson Middle School Cross Country. This year your coaches, Mr. Wickstrom, Ms. Smith and Mr. Paul, are anticipating another outstanding season with many hardworking and dedicated runners.

The first practice of the year will be on Thursday, August 31st. Practices will be held Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 3:15pm to 4:45pm. Runners should be prepared to go at 3:15pm sharp, with proper practice attire, (T-shirt, running shorts, running shoes, socks etc.). Please make sure that your child has a water bottle with their name on it for each practice, as keeping the runners hydrated is vital! Cross Country team members must also remember to have a ride home arranged for 4:30pm each afternoon. It is very important that all of the runners are picked up on time!

For a calendar of this year’s Cross Country meets and practices, please refer to Big Rivers Conference calendar. On the right of the calendar you will see a list of High School and Middle School activities, click on Cross Country 6/7/8th and Cross Country Middle school for the times and dates of practices and meets. Runners will ride the team bus to and from meets. Runners may only ride home with their parents if they are signed out by a coach. This is very important, especially with the large number of runners we have on a team.

Along with running, this year’s Cross Country team will spend time training to increase cardiovascular fitness.

Please feel free to contact any one of the coaches if you have any questions or concerns. We are looking forward to an enjoyable and successful season!

Sincerely,

Cross Country Coaches
