We are offering two season options for the 2018 Cross Country Season.

  2. Short Season: 10/15-11/18/18 ($115.00)

The short season was created to accommodate the cross country program schedules for various area Middle Schools, and athletes that are participating in other sports. Come extend your season with us and participate in the Junior Olympic Championship Meets!

EVTC participates in several meets throughout the season. Athletes are not required to compete, but it is strongly encouraged. A calendar of possible meets can be found on our Athletic.net team page. We will let you know as soon as possible what meets we will be participating in as a team, the registration process, and the associated fees (typically $5-$10).

Our season runs through November 18th, which is the day after the USATF Region 13 Junior Olympic Championship Meet. Some of our athletes competing in the Regional Meet will qualify for the National Junior Olympic Meet. The National Meet takes place December 8th, in Reno, NV. We will offer a post-season for qualifying athletes that are planning on attending the meet. There will be a $50 fee to help cover post-season coaching and other potential costs associated with supporting participation at Nationals.

Scholarships are available for those in need. Application requirements are outlined in the registration process.

Emerald Valley Track Club (EVTC) is an independent, non-profit 401c3, youth based sports organization that is sanctioned by the USATF. The goal of this club is to encourage and help young people to develop physically, emotionally, and socially through their involvement in track & field and cross country. We also strive to introduce youth to competition and help them to improve skills in these sports, and build confidence for life.

In preparation for practice, please make sure to bring warm clothes, running shoes, and water. If you have any reflective clothing and/or lighted gear, I definitely recommend wearing that. There are no lights at the SEHS track, but we'll get most of the running in before dark. Once it's dark, we'll switch to more strength training and stretching, so definitely bring warm clothes for the second half of practice.
