St. Isidore/St. Joan of Arc CYO Cross Country: Welcome


2018 CYO Cross Country

All practices will begin at 4:30PM.  


Help! Parent Coaches desperately needed for the CYO Cross Country Program!

With the graduation of many of the 8th grade parents who were instrumental in coaching CYO cross country we have a desperate need for parent coaches to help with the 2018 cross country season. If you love running and the enthusiasm of 2nd - 8th grade runners we need your help. You do not need to put together a training plan. We just need you to run with one of our four ability level training groups with enthusiasm--and to keep our CYO athlete safe. This is a great way to contribute to the running community!

If you can help by being a 'parent coach' with the team please contact Kevin Sawchuk - ksawchuk@gmail.com 

 


The St. Isidore & St. Joan of Arc cross country program is an eight week program that offers children of all abilities a fun introduction to the sport of running. We encourage a positive, social environment while teaching kids age and ability appropriate skills. The program is primarily for children in grades 3-8. Children younger than 3rd grade may participate with the approval of the coaching staff and parental supervision. Children older than 8th grade may not participate.
