Sheldon Cross Country 2016

Greetings,

We are extremely excited that you are now a member of the Sheldon Cross Country team. Cross Country is a unique TEAM sport based on individual efforts. Competitions or meets are no longer than 5,000 meters (3.1 miles), raced over various terrains (parks, fields, golf courses, etc). As a member of Sheldon Cross Country, you will be part of a successful, challenging, and fun team. Below is some important information for both athletes and parents

Here is a list of things you will need to be prepared for the season:

  • Watch – I suggest Timex 30 lap. You can pick one up for $30.00. There is no need to spend a lot of money on an expensive watch that has a lot of options you will never use. You will need a watch EVERYDAY.
  • Shoes – You should buy new shoes before starting practice. If you need help selecting a running shoe, I suggest going to the Eugene Running Company.
  • Clothing – Try to stay away from cotton and long heavy basketball shorts during hot weather. Be sure to have warm clothing, hat and gloves for cold weather.

PARENT MEETING:
Wednesday August 31st at 6:00 p.m. in Lecture Hall in Sheldon High School
