Saint Chris has a long tradition of helping to develop strong runners at all ages and our numerous championships show our success in making this happen. In addition to developing young runners, we offer programs that help experienced runners prepare for a higher level of running. The cross country program is offered to children in grades 2-5.
Grade 2-3 Program – This program is for the beginning runner and is designed to increase a child’s endurance in a fun and safe manner. The children will not only gradually increase their endurance in order to complete a 1.2 mile course, they will also learn to run efficiently with proper technique. The goal for the younger children is to have fun and learn to run at the same time. The coaches are experienced runners or are experienced cross country youth coaches or both.
Grade 4-5 Program – This program is designed for both new and experienced runners. The goal is to help these children comfortably complete a 1.8 mile course and to continually improve their times with each race. In addition to increasing their endurance, the children will also learn correct and efficient running technique, so they can maximize their ability and reduce the risk of injury. The runners will train at a pace that is comfortable for them. The coaches are experienced runners or youth cross country coaches or both.
