2019 Fall Cross Country Program Information


2017 Lafayette Reservoir Run

DVTFC holds a fall Cross Country season, culminating in the USATF Junior Olympic qualifier meets in late November (2019 Junior Olympic Cross-Country Championship will be held in Madison, WI). The 2019 Cross Country season will begin mid-September, with registration information and details posted to the website by mid-August.

Program

Open to boys and girls age 9 - 14 (younger and older athletes accepted with coaches approval), both experienced and beginners, having a minimum fitness level of running. An athlete must be able, and willing, to run continuously for approximately 1 mile without stopping - about 4 laps on a track.

Practices/Workouts

Practices will be held three days a week at Lafayette-Moraga Trail, Lafayette Reservoir, Shell Ridge Open Space and Inspiration Point.   Once finalized, a weekly schedule showing times and venues is listed in the "Calendar" section of the website.  Once daylight savings ends, times are adjusted due to darkness.

Meets

DVTFC generally participates in 2 sectional meets and the Lafayette Reservoir Run, and the JO qualifiers in November. Participation at Sectional X-C meets is not required but highly encouraged.

2018 Fees for Reference

a)   $325 for NEW 2018 DVTFC members or anyone without a 2018 USATF membership. 

b)   $300 for 2018 DVTFC members (or anyone holding a valid 2018 USATF membership).  This applies to anyone who participated in the DVTFC 2018 Spring or Summer track programs.

c)   Fees for a second sibling athlete  - deduct $75 from above.  

Program fees cover all insurance, equipment, meet fees, coaches stipends, and facilities permits.  All athletes participate at the discretion of the Coaches & Club.

There will be an additional $50 per athlete charge for those athletes that qualify and compete in the National Cross Country Junior Olympics to cover the cost of additional coaching and fees.

Darrin and Harlan want to provide the proper attention to all our X-C athletes, so we will again limit this year's program to 30-35 participants  - so please register early to secure a spot.   

Thanks for your interest in DVTFC X-C !!!!!!
