CYO Cross Country


Available to grades: 3rd – 8th grades

The Basilica of Saint Mary’s CYO Cross Country program is designed to expose athletes to the fundamentals of running (form, pacing, and endurance); provide a fun, safe environment where individual ability comes out; and help athletes get fit while learning to value fitness and achieve personal performance goals.

Practices are twice weekly on local park trails (generally Wednesdays and Sundays).

The fall 2020 season will be abbreviated and will not include outside meets.  In addition to federal and state guidelines, the team will follow all Parish and Diocese COVID precautions, guidelines and restrictions.

Practice Schedule:

The first practice in on Sunday, October 4th from 3:45-5:00 at Fort Hunt Park, Picnic Area E. The first weekday practice is on Wednesday October 7th from 2:45-4:00 at Mount Vernon District Park (adjacent to the Mount Vernon Recreation Center).

Once registered, the full practice schedule will be sent to each parent directly from the coach.
