Cross Country

Welcome to Arvada West Cross Country!

Check out the Schedule tab for our 2017 Cross Country Schedule.

Practice for cross country starts on August 14!  We meet right after school in room N123 (Coach Sundbye’s room).

Please make sure to bring water to practice each day.

All athletes need to fill out all athletic paperwork online.  You need to bring a hard copy of your physical and the participation fee ($150) to Bruna Lanaghan in the main office at Arvada West PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE.  In order to run Cross Country this fall, you must have a current physical. You can use your own Doctor for your physical, and it is valid for one year from the date it is signed by your physician.

You cannot attend practice until all paperwork is completed.  Remember – before you compete in a meet, you must attend 5 practices.

The MANDATORY Cross Country Parent/Athlete Meeting will be held on Monday, August 21, at 6:00 p.m. in the Auditorium at Arvada West.  Please plan to attend, as important information will be distributed at this meeting regarding the cross country season.  All sports are required by CHSAA to hold this meeting.  Even if you are a returning athlete and have attended the meeting before, you and your parent must attend.

Notice – There is no school on Monday, September 4, for the Labor Day holiday. We have a meet on Saturday, September 2.  All cross country runners are expected to attend this meet.  We also have a meet on Thursday, September 7.  We will have practice on Monday, September 4, at 8:00 a.m.  We will meet in the north parking lot of Arvada West.  This practice is mandatory for varsity runners.  All runners should plan to attend this practice.
