Cross Country at Maywood Hills is our fall team sport. Practices start as soon as possible after the beginning of the new school year each September. The season includes four Tuesday meets with other schools in the Northshore School District.
This program is open to 3rd, 4th & 5th graders of all abilities. Participants are introduced to the sport of long distance running. Our elementary runners compete on cross country courses of roughly one half-mile. Team members learn that distance running takes more than just raw speed, and work on the art of pacing as they build up their physical endurance.
The Maywood Hills team/activity shirts are available for purchase from our PTA. The Cross Country team, the Track team, and the Math Olympiad team, will be using these shirts this school year. If you are on more than one team, you will only need one shirt, and it is yours to keep. Please contact the PTA with order requests.
