The Starting Line

WELCOME TO THE HOME OF EDISON HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY!

  •  Follow us on Instagram: @ehsxc
     
  • If you are interested in joining Edison Cross Country for the fall of 2018, fill out this contact information form so you can receive e-mails about imporant dates leading up to Summer Camp and Parent Meetings

 

  • We have an amazing group of athletes that work hard and are committed to maintaining a level of excellence that Edison Cross Country has become known for. Check out our history page to see how we've done over the years (the page is a work in progress).

 

  • In the Sunset League for 2017, the Boys Varsity finished 5th, while Girls Varsity finished 4th. The Boys JV finished in 4th while the Girls JV finished in 3rd. The Boys FS finished in 5th while the Girls FS finished 4th. This was the last year of the Sunset League as a 6-team league.

     

  • Starting in 2018, we will still be a part of the Sunset League Conference, but it will now have two different divisions, each with its own league champion, as well as its own CIF qualifiers. Boys will be in the Surf Division and the Girls will be in the Wave Division. 


Be sure to check back for important information, including keeping track of the Point Sheet (attendance), meet schedule and where we are supposed to be each day. It's recommended that you read the "Cornerstones of Training" and "Stretching Routines" under the Running Resources Page.

 

  • Keep in touch throughout the year! I use Remind.com to send out alerts to athletes mostly, but as parents it's never a bad idea to see what information your athlete is getting. Sign up following these instructions.


Summer Camp 2018 will start Monday June 25th and ends the day before school begins!. Practices are at 7 am Monday through Saturday. End times will vary depeding on the workout and length of run for each athlete. Check the Parent Meeting page, Points System page and the Summer Training page for all information relating to the Summer Camp.

Mammoth Camp 2018 will be July 29th through August 4th. Plan your vacations accordingly if you plan on trying to qualify this year! See the Mammoth Camp page for more details.

 

THIS WEEK'S ANNOUNCEMENTS

There will be a Summer Camp Parent Meeting on Tuesday June 19th at 6:30 pm in the Edison Cafeteria. This will be a chance to turn in completed paperwork, pay for camp and to find out all the details about how camp works. All paperwork can be printed out from the "Parent Meeting" page.

 

Cross Country training begins starting Memorial Day!!! Look under the "Summer Training" page that is linked on the left for the recommended mileage for your group. I encourage you to find people of similar pace and distance to run with. It'll make getting the training done a lot easier. Be ready to handle to expected mileage when Summer Camp begins (shown below).
