I am excited to hear that your son or
daughter is interested in Chico High Cross Country. We have a long
tradition of winning and fun. Have him or her ask friends to come out as
well. We have workouts for all levels of experience.
There are no cuts to make the team as long as athletes come ready to work hard and be a member of a quality team.
Our official practices begin the first day of school. We will meet at
3:20 on the southeast corner of Chico High where Esplanade and Lincoln
Ave meet. There is a grassy area there that is our "home-base" for Cross
Country practice. Be sure to come changed and
ready to run. We will have a place to store backpacks if your student
hasn't gotten a locker for PE yet. Make sure he or she has completed a
Chico Unified Physical with a doctor before that first day, or they will
be unable to practice.
From then on, we will have practice all school days as well as a few
races/practices on weekends. All practices are mandatory and must be
attended with some exceptions for injury and sickness. For races, we
have boys/girls, varsity and junior varsity divisions
at each contest.
Let me know if you have any more questions,
