HOW TO MAKE THE 2015 KING CROSS COUNTRY TEAMS!

The coaching staff will select athletes for the competitive season based on the following criteria:

1. Displays a Consistent Positive Attitude. Athletes of any ability level who are viewed by the coaching staff during the summer camp or during the prior season(s) as being negative toward their teammates, the sport, training, the coaching staff or the well-being of the program will not make the team. Such attitudes are detrimental to the team bonding process and will not be tolerated.

Prior experience with King Cross Country will NOT guarantee a position on the team.

Internet/Facebook/Twitter posts, texting or other electronic communication that is damaging to individuals or the team as a whole will not be tolerated and if discovered will be grounds for dismissal from the team

Such characteristics of negativity, should they arise during the competitive season (after selection has been made) may result in mid-season dismissal from the team.

2. Shows Consistent Quality Effort in practice. Athletes who make a habit of walking for any part of a practice after the first two weeks of the summer practice schedule will not be selected for the competitive season. Deliberately cutting a prescribed route to gain a shorter distance is viewed as showing a distinct lack of effort.

3. Demonstrates a Minimum Ability Level. Concerns of safety and liability require that the coaches be able within reason, to monitor all runners on the team. Therefore, runners must demonstrate the ability to run at an adequate speed to ensure visibility and group contact. Much effort will be made by the coaches during the summer camp to motivate and instruct all runners to be able to maintain reasonable contact with the group. Should a runner NOT be able to consistently finish workouts without walking, within a reasonable time-gap of the group, such a runner will not be selected for the competitive season.

All athletes must meet minimum time standards to make the team. Below is a listing of the marks for both ROOKIES and VETERANS.

STANDARDS REQUIRED FOR MAKING THE 2015 TEAMS 

Rookies must meet the following by the final time trial in August:

On a three mile course:
Girl, 9th and 10th grade rookies must run 26:30 or faster
Boy, 9th and 10th grade rookies must run 24:30 or faster

Girls in 11th who are rookies must run 24:30 or faster
Boys in 11th who are rookies must run 21:30 or faster

Girls in 12th grade who are rookies must run 22:30 or faster
Boys in 12th grade who are rookies must run 19:30 or faster

Veterans must meet the following by the final time trial in August: (Veterans are boys and girls who have run at least one year of King XC)

Run a three mile course in their 2014 PR + 1:25.  List of times RETURNERS of KING XC must meet to make the team

NOTE: Improvement over your time spent in our program is an expectation. Therefore, if a KXC veteran's 2014 PR + 1:25 window pushes their qualifying mark ABOVE the rookie standard for your grade, then the veteran must meet the rookie standard for their grade level.

We will meet starting at 7:00 AM starting on July 20 and going thru to Wednesday, August 19th. We will generally finish at 8:30 AM.  The practices originate and conclude at King High School (front parking lot) Monday-Friday.  Saturdays are at different locations.

There will be weekly outings/events, T-shirts, chances to achieve qualifying marks prior to August 20.

Cost is $90. Make checks payable to King XC Booster Club. If paying by cash, exact bills please. Camp payments are not refundable.  Please DO NOT mail payments to school.  Bring paperwork and payments to the first day of summer camp.

The camp is NOT required in order to make the 2015 team, but is highly recommended as helpful experience toward that goal.
