Coed Cross Country


Official cross country practice starts on Aug. 1, 2017.  However, summer workouts start the week of May 22rd and have been distributed to athletes.  All athletes interested in being on the cross country team in August must execute the summer workouts.  If you did not get the summer workouts, email Coach Sanderlin at

The summer workout program is extremely important to the success of the NAHS cross country program, since is encompasses 45% (10 of the 22.5 weeks) of the season (May 22 – July 31).  Athletes are expected to report to practice on Aug. 1st – In Shape.  The season is NOT for getting into basic shape.  It is for:

  1. Building strength
  2. Building speed
  3. Refining race tactics

In order to be on the cross country team you must complete an Athlete Information Form (AIF) and email it to Coach Sanderlin (see above) prior to June 1, 2016.  You can obtain an AIF at the Running Warrior web site
