Middle School Cross Country is open to all students in grades 6-8. New runners are welcome; no experience is necessary!

Practices will be held Monday-Thursday (& some Fridays). Meet at the track, dressed to run.

Students wishing to participate must do the following:

  • Have a physical dated after April 15, 2020. Have your doctor fill out the TSSAA physical form. Forms are available on the school website; go to Students -> Athletics
  • This year Middle School will be using the Dragonfly system for athletic paperwork. See instructions to sign up for an account. Our school code is: 6F9EBM. You can upload your physical to the site and fill out all other forms electronically.
  • Please read East Hamilton's Student-Parent Participation Info.
  • Bring the signature pages of the Student-Parent Contract and the $30 fee to the first practice.
  • This year all students also need to turn in a signed COVID Risk Consent form in order to practice.

The first days of practice will be August 12 & 13 from 2:30-3:30. Come only on the day that you are at school. Meet at the track. I will also hold a practice on Friday, August 14, from 3:30-4:30. Hoping that the later time will make it easier for parents to give students a ride to the school.

More info will be coming about the practice schedule for the following weeks.

It is essential this year that students bring a water bottle. Water fountains are turn off.

Please have parents sign up to get notices through Remind. I will be using it to send out information about changes in the practice schedule and info about meets. Sign up at Our class code is @k6bc66.
