Important information

Welcome to Yucca Valley Cross Country 2012. Summer practice will begin July 5th, 2012 at 8:00 AM. All interested athletes will need to report to the gymnasium weight room ready to workout. Practices will be held everyday at 6:00 PM at the track. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning, we will be lifting weights at 8:00 am until 9:45 am, with evening practice going from 6:00 pm until 7:45 pm at the track. All athletes MUST have their physicals and insurance on file with the athletic office. If cleared ahead of time, athletes may bring their required paperwork to the first practice. All athletes are required to be at both morning & evening practices unless cleared by the coach ahead of time.

We will be conducting our own running camp. Only a select group will be given the opportunity to participate due to limited space and funding. The booster club will be able to cover close to 80 percent of the cost. The runners, if invited, will be expected to cover the rest which is roughly $200.00. Running camp will be held in Big Bear, CA during the days of August 11-16.

During the season, we have a meet scheduled close to the beach. Once the race is complete, we will go to Huntington Beach and have a BBQ. Athletes will be chosen based on training, improvement, attitude, and fundraising. It is a great race and a fun day at the beach. Do not be left out!

All athletes will need to bring proper running gear to workouts.

These items include:

1. Proper Running Shoes

2. T-Shirt & Shorts

Shoes must be built for running, no cross trainers, high tops, Vans etc. Improper shoes will damage feet and cause shin splints. We will be planning a day to go to the Running Center in Redlands. This is an excellent place to find the proper running shoe to fit your foot. If you cannot make it then, you may want to check out Running Wild in Palm Springs. Both places will give you a discount if you mention you are with Yucca Valley Cross Country.
