MIDDLE SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY TEAM
The Winchester Recreation Department is teaming up with North Suburban YMCA and Arlington Recreation to offer this new and exciting middle school cross country program for boys and girls in grades 6-8.
Our Cross Country team will meet twice per week at the North Suburban YMCA. Our athletes will learn cross country basics, appropriate warm up, cool down, and stretching techniques to promote total body health and fitness. Members of the Cross Country team will utilize the field space at the North Suburban YMCA, the functional fitness area, gymnasium, and take daily runs along Horn Pond and the immediate area. The team will celebrate the athletes’ hard work by running the annual 5k race at the YMCA on November 3rd and individual athletes can also qualify for the Massachusetts State Middle School Cross Country Invitational held in Devens, MA on November 9th. Each athlete will receive a team t-shirt, entry fee to the YMCA 5k race on Nov. 3rd, and entry fee and transportation to the State Meet on November 9th.
Come experience the exciting sport of cross country and represent your community in this fun new program.
The program will be instructed by YMCA certified personal trainers and experienced running coaches.
