Purpose:  Our summer training program is designed to help train and prepare students for the cross country try-out, which will be held the day before school starts.  The try-out will be a three mile cross country race at Polliwog Park on Tuesday, August 21.  The race is traditionally called “The Watermelon Run” and is followed by a watermelon feast!  Final team rosters will be determined by student’s time and placing within the race.

Save the date: Surf Festival Sand Run, Hermosa Beach Pier August 4th at 8 am
All athletes will be running or volunteering (if you are a senior athlete!) at this event.

Following the try-out:  Parent meeting will be held on Thursday 8/23 7 pm at Mira Costa.  Coaches will present an intro to the sport and all uniforms and spirit gear orders will be taken at this meeting.
