The Starting Line

WELCOME TO THE 2016 EDITION OF EDISON HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY!

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.

In the Sunset League for 2015, the Boys Varsity finished tied for 2nd. The Girls Varsity finished 1st and were the League Champions. The Boys JV finished in 1st for the 3rd year in a row! The Girls JV finished in 1st, completing one of the more dominant seasons in recent memory (they also won several invitationals). The Boys FS and Girls FS both finished 3rd. We also had a couple of individual league champions as well: Tyler Baird in Boys FS and Grace Condon in Girls JV.


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.


–> Summer Camp Parent Meeting will be Wednesday June 8, 2016 at 6:30 pm in the Edison Cafeteria. We will discuss all the nuances of summer camp. You can turn in paperwork and register for summer camp at this moment. All information and paperwork (now linked) about the meeting can be found in the "Parent Meeting" Page. Recommended summer training mileage is posted on the "Summer Training" 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.

 

THIS WEEK'S ANNOUNCEMENTS

Recommended summer training is posted in the "Summer Training" Page on the left. Training starts May 23. Pay attention to the mileage you will be asked to run the first week of summer camp below. The recommended mileage will help you be ready to handle the first week of camp. There are no organized teams practices until the start of summer camp. You are encouraged with run with each as it always makes the run go by faster and generally makes the run more quality. Incoming freshman are not allowed to meet with current athletes until they have completed their last day of middle school.

Also it's recommended to read the "Cornerstones of Training" and "Stretching Routines" under the Running Resources Page.
