Welcome to the MCS Cobra Cross Country Team!

Practices and General Information:

Who:  All are welcome; no experience needed.  Come out and have fun running!

- Equipment needed:  a pair of running shoes and comfortable work out clothing.

- Fees: Athletes fees for meets are paid for by the school.

- Meals and drinks:  Athletes are encouraged to pack their own healthy lunches, drinks and

  snacks for Meets, but may purchase food there. Drink plenty of water to hydrate yourself

  throughout the day, especially prior to race day.  Chocolate milk is a great way to replenish

  handed out as soon as the team decides when they'd like to practice.

- Athletes wishing to change at the school must do so prior to practice as practices will start on


- Athletes are reminded to lock their belongings in their gym lockers to prevent theft.

- Athletes are meant to meet at the outdoor basketball courts on the north side of the school.

- Athletes wishing to compete in the cross country meets are strongly encouraged to attend all

  practices with the team.

Cross Country is a demanding sport that involves strenuous physical activity under a wide variety of conditions. Although reasonable precautions are taken to ensure the safety of the athletes, the possibility of injury does exist. We, therefore, ask all student athletes to complete and return the Athlete Information Form to Mr. Wilson, Mr. Coleman or Mrs. Strachan before they are allowed to compete!​​
