Cross Country 2017

Webber Cross Country Preseason Camp 2017 The Webber cross country coaching staff will be running a preseason camp for any 6th, 7th, or 8th grade boys or girls that are interested in being a part of the cross country team this fall.  Cross country is a no cut sport, so anyone that wants to be a part of the team is welcome.  We recommend athletes attending the cross country camp to help them work on their form and get a head start on conditioning before official practice begins on August 23.  IMPORTANT CAMP DETAILS:

  • The preseason camp will take place August 14 through August 18 from 3:00 pm- 4:15 pm. 
  • Interested athletes should meet by the flagpole in front of Webber at 3:00 pm and be picked up by 4:20 pm. 
  • There is no fee for the preseason camp, but interested runners MUST have a current PSD sports physical form turned in to the front office at Webber in order to participate in the camp.  Please turn the form in to the front office at Webber.  The blue card verifies that the paperwork is complete and fees have been paid.  Athletes will need to turn in a blue card on the first day of official practice. 
  • Athletes should arrive at camp dressed in running gear.  Athletes should also bring a water bottle (with water in it!).
  • Again, the camp is optional, but it is a great way to get a head start on getting into competitive shape!
