Elementary School Cross Country

Fall Elementary School Cross Country Program

The Memphis Youth Athletics Elementary School XC Program is an 5-7 week meet series for all girls and boys grades 3-5 that teaches the fundamentals of distance running. The series concludes with an area championship meet that allows athletes a chance to qualify for the TN State Elementary and Middle School XC Championships in October. In many schools in the Memphis area,  XC & Track is not a funded school sport at the elementary and middle school levels.  Memphis Youth Athletics serves to help fund, foster, and expand a sport that provides positive health benefits to its participants. 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!!
