What is cross country?

Cross country is the sport of running outside in the fresh air. Each practice we run 1-3 miles, play games, and do various workouts that help build endurance. We run on the OMS campus and in the Dry Canyon here in Redmond. Each of our races is 3 kilometers long (1.8 miles). Cross Country is a great way to get stronger and meet new people! 

Why would you run for fun? 

Becoming a stronger runner can help you in many areas of life. Cross country teaches you to persevere through challenges and to believe in yourself when you feel like giving up. 

Will cross country help me if I play other sports? 

If you play basketball, baseball, softball, ski, wrestle or any other sport, cross country will help build endurance to help you be better prepared for whatever sport you play. 

Equipment

Very little equipment is needed for cross country. For practice, all you need to do is clothes you can run in, extra clothes (we will always be outside so bring a sweatshirt or windbreaker), a snack, running shoes, and a water bottle. 

There are many different styles of running shoes to choose from, but anything that is lightweight will do fine. You can find running shoes at your local Fred Meyer, online, or at specialty running stores. 

To avoid injury and to help preserve the life of a running shoe, coaches encourage athletes to have a dedicated shoe for cross country that is separate from a student’s everyday shoe. Please speak with a coach if you would like support finding a running shoe. 

Expectations

Cross country meets after school to run and be active. Each practice is 1 hour and 30 minutes long. Athletes are expected to arrive to practice on time with all of their equipment. 

We travel by bus to all of our meets. We are fortunate to have 3 races at each meet. Whether the race is here in Redmond or in Madras, each athlete is expected to stay for the duration of the meet. Cross Country is a team sport and we want to make sure that each of our team members has someone cheering for them when they run. We understand that things come up, but please do your best to have your athlete stay for the whole meet.

Unexcused/Excused Absences from Practices

Unexcused absences include, but are not limited to suspensions, not telling a coach personally they will miss a practice, or being in school and not showing up at practice.  Extensive absences will result in a loss of playing time and could lead to dismissal from the team. Absences, whether excused or unexcused may impact the students’ ability to participate in games/contests at the discretion of the coach and the Athletic Director.

Excused absences could include things such as family emergencies, family vacations, or a player is sick.  Coaches need to be notified if a player is not coming to practice by the parent or player. Sending word with someone other than these people is not acceptable, and will be considered unexcused.  If the absence is extensive, there may be a reduction in playing time due to the nature of competitive team sports. A player must be in school the entire day in order to practice or play in a game.  Sleeping in or not feeling well and then coming to school late will not be “excused”. Athletes that cannot participate in P.E. because of illness or injury the day of a game or practice may not participate that day.  Athletes sometimes must miss some school due to a doctor/dentist appointment. Medical reasons ARE excused if it causes the athlete to miss a partial day and will not result in sitting out a practice or game.

Please see the athletics handbook for more important information

Ausencias Injustificadas/Justificadas de las Prácticas

 Las Ausencias injustificadas incluyen, entre otras, suspensiones, no decirle personalmente a un entrenador que perderá una práctica, o estar en la escuela y no presentarse a la práctica. Las ausencias extensas resultarán en una pérdida de tiempo de juego y podrían conducir a la expulsión del equipo. Las Ausencias, ya sean justificadas o injustificadas, pueden afectar la capacidad de los estudiantes para participar en juegos/concursos a discreción del entrenador y el Director Deportivo.

 Las Ausencias justificadas pueden incluir situaciones como emergencias familiares, vacaciones familiares o la enfermedad de un jugador. Los entrenadores deben ser notificados por el padre o el jugador si un jugador no viene a la práctica. Enviar un mensaje con alguien que no sea esta persona no es aceptable y se considerará injustificado. Si la ausencia es extensa, puede haber una reducción en el tiempo de juego debido a la naturaleza de los deportes de equipo competitivos. Un jugador debe estar en la escuela todo el día para poder practicar o participar en un juego. Dormir hasta tarde o no sentirse bien y luego llegar tarde a la escuela no será ” Justificado”. Los atletas que no pueden participar en P.E. por enfermedad o lesión el día de un juego o práctica no podrá participar ese día. Los atletas a veces deben faltar a la escuela debido a una cita con el médico o el dentista. Las razones médicas ESTÁN justificadas si hacen que el atleta se pierda un día parcial y no resultará en una práctica o juego.
