Cross Country - Boys Junior Varsity
Cross-country at the Junior Varsity level is designed to include all participants to the fullest extent of their abilities. Athletes at this level train at a pace that challenges them but it is not as rigorous as varsity training. Practices are often preceded by a full team meeting, creating a supportive and fun team atmosphere in which everyone can participate. Coaches help every runner set personal and team goals for the season, providing as much guidance as possible. Being a member of this program requires the athlete's strong commitment to hard work; the rewards are a positive team experience, increased self-confidence, motivation, self-discipline, and the opportunity to run faster than he thought possible.
Every healthy member of the boys' team runs in every regular season meet, held on one Wednesday and most Saturdays in September, October, and November. A member of the JV team who runs a faster time than a varsity runner in a given week's race is usually promoted to the Varsity team for the next week's race, and this may occur during the course of the season and for championship meets.
