The Casa Harriers is a club that focuses on self-improvement and good sportsmanship through running. Throughout the season your child will run timed miles, do interval workouts, run relays, stretch, and do plyometric drills to increase strength and stamina. Students learn how to pace themselves for a long distance run.  Records will be kept for each child, and children will get to see how much they have improved throughout the year. Practices are a “no trash talk” zone filled with laughs and cheers.

Awards are handed out at the end of the season to the students who show the best attitude and most improved. The season will end with an awards/pizza banquet at the school on Monday, November 19.

School-uniform-colored clothes or Harriers T-shirts are required while participating at Cross Country.  Harriers T-shirts will be available for order towards the beginning of the season. Please make sure you fill out all required forms. Your child will not be allowed to participate without all forms filled out and signed.  Please make sure that all forms are completed and turned in (to teachers or Mr. Lynch), along with $5 fee (for pizza party) before March 11.

If your child participated in Cross Country in the Fall then you only need to fill out the Release Form for Spring.  The Physical and Physician forms carry over and cover the Spring season.
