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. Here is a PDF order form. Order forms will also be available in the school office.
The fee for Cross Country is $35.00 (or $17.50 for free or reduced lunch qualifiers). Fees can be paid in person or online via https://schoolsales.nsd.org. There is a $1.95 convenience fee if you sign up online. Fees and registration forms must be turned in prior to our first practice on September 17th. If you choose to fill out paperwork instead of registering online, extra registration forms may be found in the office.
