Paseo Hills Cross Country is a non-cut sport that provides opportunities for many student-athletes to be a part of the athletic program at our school. Cross Country races are 1.5 miles for seventh and eighth graders. The seventh and eighth graders do compete against one another, but boys and girls run separate races. The 5th and 6th graders are part of Paseo Hills Cross Country Club, not a part of middle school athletics, and they will run 1.2 miles. The 5th and 6th graders compete against each other, but boys and girls do race separately. Meets are during the months of September and December.The champions will then have a final meet with our other divisions and the Peoria and Dysart district. Dates for this meet will be announced if we are the champions.
Practices will start the week of September 18th and will be about 3-4 days a week after school at the school and park and go through February 10th. All interested students will need to fill out the clearance/athletic packet prior to practicing. There is a $60 athletic fee and a registration form that will also need to be completed BEFORE practice starts. There is also a fee to purchase the PH team tank top that is required for the meets. The athletic and shirt fees should be paid when you join the cross country team. The uniform fee for the 2023-24 will be determined as they are ordered--somewhere betweeen $25-35. I am trying very hard to keep costs down. We will also have a mandatory purchase of a $30 Family Pass which gets you in to all the cross country meets.
In order to participate in an after-school athletic program, all students must be cleared to participate through the athletic office. The first step is to complete an athletic clearance packet in REGISTER MY ATHLETE, you will need insurance information, a physical, register and watch the concussion program (this includes registering as a freshman at the high school you think you will attend, watching the video, taking the test, printing out the certificate and returning it with the packet, and signing the concussion acknowledgement form). All students must be cleared prior to try-outs.
22-23 Cross country schedule TBD
