Preliminary 2013 XC Season Info

Hopefully everyone is enjoying their summer!  I just wanted to post a quick note to provide some information regarding Cross Country so you can plan your Fall activities accordingly.

We will plan to hold practices at Harry Dunham Park on Wednesday and Friday afternoons again – likely 5:30 or 6 PM for one hour.
We will hold our first practice the week school begins, so will plan on Wednesday, 11 September.

Meets & Other Events
The meet schedule is still coming together, but a few have already been confirmed and I have guessed when some may occur based on previous schedules.  We will also aim to hold an intra-squad practice meet and a season-end trophy ceremony.

Sept 29 - Practice Intra-squad Meet @ Harry Dunham [tentative – date may change or we may use a practice]
Oct 4 – OLS @ Flood Hill, South Orange [estimated]
Oct 12 - Assumption @ Loantaka [confirmed]
Oct 20 – Holy Trinity @ Mountainside [estimated]
Oct 25 - St. Elizabeth's @ Natirar [confirmed]
Oct 26 – St. Virgils @ Morris Plains [estimated]
Nov 2 - League Championships hosted by SVM @ Loantaka [confirmed]
Nov 6 – Season-end Trophy Ceremony [tentative – we may go with Oct 30th, depending on Halloween activities]
Nov 28 – I am contemplating organizing a “Turkey Trot” for Thanksgiving morning for the broader SJS community.  Let me know what you think.

Registration & Uniforms
We will likely send the registration form with a Wednesday’s Words email, but will also send it directly to you and post to our website in August.
We will aim to keep the registration fee the same – i.e. ~$30 per child and $15 additional for a uniform shirt.  We will use the same uniforms as last year, so if they fit, there is no need to purchase another.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to either Shereen or me.  If you know of anyone interested in the program, please send them our way!

Enjoy the rest of summer – see you at the pool!
