When: Cross Country season is September through November. Practices will be on Monday and Thursday evenings and an optional Saturday morning family practice. The first practice includes a mandatory information meeting for parents. We will start out from 6:00 to approximately 7:30. Parents must be available to pick up their kids 15 minutes prior to the end of practice. As it starts getting dark earlier, practice will start earlier.
Where: Averill Park High School
Who: Kids ages 7-14 who like to run, play games & have fun!
What: Practices will consist of long distance running, trail running, sprinting exercises and lots of games. Through the season there will be several meets where we are competing against other teams. There are usually a few home meets as well as away meets. The big event is your participation in the Junior Olympics in November.
How: See our How To Register Page for details. Early-Bird registration will be available with a $10 discount. There is a $10 sibling discount. A $15 late fee is applied after the season starts. We are a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization and do not want the cost of APRR Programs to be a barrier to participation. If your child is interested in participating but your current financial circumstance is a concern, please contact the APRR Board. We have a number of scholarships available.
All athletes must also be registered with the USATF (United States Track & Field Association). Registrations cost $25 for youth and are good for a calendar year. If you already registered for Track and Field (spring) you can use the same number for Cross Country (fall).
Get your child's USATF number first because you will need it for the AP Road Runners registration process. If you are not a member of USATF, you will need to register with them before you can register for APRR. USATF registration is required for all athletes, as our insurance is through USATF and we are a USATF Sanctioned Club.
