Please click this link to put your name on our interest list for the 2017 season!  

We'd like to know all of you who are interested in or curious about participating in cross country in 2017!

This camp is for registered King High School students only, grades 9-12.

WHAT: This is five weeks of preparation for the season. It will include practice, form instruction, diet and hydration education, games, team outings and bonding activities.

WHEN: July 24 - August 23rd, 7:00 AM from King High's front parking lot, and other locations to be announced as camp proceeds.

REQUIREMENTS: All athletes must have a RUSD Athletic Packet filled out and a DR's physical by July 24. Bring those to camp on July 24, or turn into Athletic Director's office prior to that date.

COST: $115. A $10 discount is applied if paid in full by June 10. Make checks payable to "KING CROSS COUNTRY BOOSTER CLUB" If paying in cash, exact bills please, change cannot be made. The fee pays for a dri-fit shirt, coaching six days a week, occasional food and drink, prizes, and a team BBQ.

OK, if you finished your season at league finals, you are strongly encouraged to start getting back to your fitness this week with "active rest" -- which is aerobic work without the running.

So, three-four days this week, get in a 45-60 minute session of any or all of the following:

1) bike riding at a good pace -- wear a helmet!
2) hiking at a vigorous walking pace -- maybe drive down to Mt.Rubidoux and hike the trail a couple of times, or, walk up to the "M" on the mountain behind Moreno Valley.
3) Swimming!  get in a pool and stay active for the duration of an hour.

We will start running next week!

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.


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

On a three mile course:
Girl, 9th - 11th grade rookies must run 25:30 or faster
Boy, 9th - 11th grade rookies must run 23:30 or faster

Girls in 12th grade who are rookies must run 23:00 or faster
Boys in 12th grade who are rookies must run 21:00 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 2016 pace per mile PR + 90 seconds. Click here to see the times returning runners must meet, along with all other requirements for team selection.

A grace period may be held after the last time trial for a maximum of two weeks. During that time, those still desiring to make the team can attend two more time trials (one per week) and attempt a qualifying mark.  Students will not be able to practice with the team during that period of time. 

NOTE: Improvement over your time spent in our program is an expectation. Therefore, if a KXC veteran's 2016 pace-per-mile PR + 1:30 window pushes their qualifying mark ABOVE the rookie standard for your grade, then the veteran must meet the rookie standard for their grade level (9-11 or 12th grade rookie standard)

Friday, January 13

DATES:  August 6-12

COST: Approximately $330.  Exact price will be announced the week before and is dependent on how many athletes go and the cost of rentals, gasoline and other factors

WHO:  This camp is by invitation only.  The coaches will extend those invitation.  For the sake of clarity, the coaches make their decisions by considering and ranking each athlete on the following categories. 

Attendance in Summer Camp, ability demonstrated on a long time trial, ability and speed demonstrated on a short time trial,  Team Standard Met, and, in some cases, if the athlete ran the distance events (800, 1600, 3200) during 2017 track season

These standards apply to RETURNING KING RUNNERS.  

All newcomers to KXC are judged on relative talent, fitness and attitude compared to other rookies during summer camp. 


          These links are active and "live." It is your responsibility to stay alert for any errors in the record.
