Fall Cross Country PROGRAM
COVID-19 – The MYA Board will continue to monitor this situation and will follow guidelines from the CDC and Shelby County Health Department. We encourage everyone to read through MYA’s COVID-19 Action Plan approved by the Shelby County Health Department by CLICKING HERE.
Our Fall Cross Country Program runs from August to October. The 5-7 week season consists of 4-5 regular season meets and a championship meet. The series concludes with a regional championship meet that allows athletes from all over West TN a chance to qualify for the TN State Elementary and Middle School XC Championships in October. Athletes may compete “unattached” or with a school based team. Volunteer coaches are needed to coach school based teams. Coaches can include school PE teachers, parent coaches, or other volunteers at their Elementary School, Middle School or the community. In most cases, this ‘team’ is considered a school club, supported by the parents and PTSOs. MYA will serve as your meet director and facilitator during the season. We do not hold practices nor train athletes during this part of the season. If your school does not have a program and you would like one then we can get you started! Everyone is welcome, whether your school has a program or not, you are home-schooled, or just love to run!!
Next Up: September 14 - October 17
Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go. It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it’s all about.
