what you can expect from us
What you can expect from us?
  • A positive influence
    • Our goal is to provide a positive overall experience
  • Quality and constant coaching
  • Professional behavior around the kids, other teams, and parents
  • Commitment to your sons and daughters, Grayson HS, and our program
what we expect from our runners
What we expect from our runners?
  • Commitment to our program
    • A desire to be a part of something more important than a single runner
  • Be proud of Grayson Cross Country
    • Always “wearing” and representing Grayson Cross Country
  • Be on time and ready to work every day
  • Represent the attitude and behavior that reflects well on the program and school
expectations for parents
Expectations for Parents
  • We must have 1 of 3 things from the parents
    • 1 – Your effort and energies
    • 2 – Your financial contributions
    • 3 – Your contacts within the communities
  • If you cannot provide all 3, specializing in one is perfectly fine
goals this year and beyond
This Year

1)Make summer a top priority.

2) Compete well in all the meets and consistently get better.

3) REGION 8AAAAA: Qualify for state, but compete for the highest possible spot(Guys team has never finished higher than 3rd)

4) Top 10 at STATE!!!


Change the culture: parents, community, everyone has to be involved to make this program like a Brookwood program.

Develop this program into an elite program in the state (1st or 2nd at region, top 5 or better at state)

All of this starts now!!!

Goals: This year and Beyond
summer conditioning
Summer Conditioning
  • 1) Summer conditioning is VERY IMPORTANT
    • Why? Builds the base necessary to reach their potential during the season and their cross country career.
    • Strength (with more strength they develop more foot speed and better form)
    • Mileage (Safe and Smart)
    • We will not only run, but also have modified insanity workouts 3 nights a week(extremely important)
    • Core Training
  • 2) Monday-Thursday 6:30 pm @ Tribble Mill Park in the parking lot near the playground
  • 4) What do they need to bring? Water, yoga mat, maybe a snack for afterwards, good trail shoes (their preference, completely up to them)
  • 5) This is the most important part of our season!
  • Most importantly, they need Energy
  • Whole Grains (extremely important brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat pasta, quinoa noodles, oatmeal)
  • Vegetables (focus on Greens; kale, collard greens, bakchoy, etc… wide variety is always best)
  • Proteins (lean proteins-beans, high quality chicken or fish)
  • Plenty of water
  • Stay away from fast food
  • Eat throughout the day (do not just eat 3 times a day-if you are hungry eat)
  • Energy bars, fruit, cereal, pb/jelly sandwiches on whole wheat bread.
  • Often times this aspect is ignored when you are this young, I know I did, but it is extremely important to develop these healthy habits now.
season information
Season Information
  • Important Dates for the Summer
    • May 28th Monday 1st Day of conditioning
    • July 1st through the 8th (Dead Week) Extremely important for the kids to still meet-I cannot be there.
    • July 14th-21st-My Summer Vacation at the beach. (To get better, the work you do when the coach is not there is the most important!)
  • Important Dates for the Fall
    • July 30th(1st official day of practice-remember practice is mandatory
    • Other important dates are in the packet (including picture day, team dinners, etc…)
  • Meet Information (FUN)
the season officially starts july 30 th what to expect
The Season “officially” starts July 30th-what to expect
  • Time commitment
    • Monday through Saturday
      • Saturday Meets (If we do not have a Sat meet, the Varsity will have practice)
    • Generally 2:30 to 4:30 5:00-Most days will be at Tribble Mill Park-weekly schedule will be posted. What does this mean? We will need help getting the kids over to the park!.(IMPORTANT:I DO NOT LIKE RUNNING AT THE SCHOOL, SO IT IS VITAL WE HAVE ENOUGH RIDES)
    • 10 meets throughout the year
    • Most importantly, if the kids cannot get it done in the classroom, they cannot participate. (Regardless of how good someone is, there number 1 priority is the classroom)
between now and july 30th
Between now and July 30th
  • Mileage and overall strength
    • Be at as many conditioning days as possible(ALL of them if you can be) I will be at all of them except for one week…
    • We will be working on the core
    • 300 to 600 or miles this summer!
      • 300-450 Girls
      • 400-600 plus for the guys
      • Younger first year runners will be closely monitored to see what they can handle (getting out there everyday is the most important thing for those kids)
