HOW TO MAKE THE 2014 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 2014 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 25:45 or faster
Boy, 9th and 10th grade rookies must run 22:45 or faster

Girls in 11th who are rookies must run 24:45 or faster.  
Boys in 11th who are rookies must run 21:45 or faster

Girls in 12th grade who are rookies must run 22:30 or faster (will be 21:00 in 2015)
Boys in 12th grade who are rookies must run 19:30 or faster (will be 18:00 in 2015)

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 2013 PR + 1:25.  CLICK HERE TO SEE YOUR PERSONAL STANDARD

NOTE: Improvement over your time spent in our program is an expectation. Therefore, if a KXC veteran's 2013 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.
