About AAA Cross Country
Our program welcomes kids in grades 2-5 from Andover, Minnesota and all surrounding communities. No equipment is needed except a pair of running/tennis shoes (no spikes).
Kids will compete in Four Sunday afternoon meets (weather permitting) at Anoka High School. For the 2019 season, tentative meets are scheduled for:
Meets will begin at 3:30pm and last about 1 hour including awards. Based on feedback from last season, we will be running the Boys and Girls teams together. Races will still be broken up based on Grade/Distance.
Athletes will receive a high-quality performance style AAA Cross Country shirt and compete for ribbons. The top-8 runners of each gender in each race receive a ribbon based on their place as well as Personal Record ribbons for improvement.
Practice will begin Mid-September. Schedules will vary somewhat by team and coach. Practice locations will be determined by coaches and will last approximately 30 minutes.
Interested but concerned about conflicts with other sports? No Problem! The Cross Country program puts the emphasis on developing distance running and personal achievement. It also serves as a complimentary sport to other activities. Team practice attendance is flexible if your athlete is busy running at another sport.
Early Registration through Aug 1 is just $49. Late Registration is open through Sept 1 for just $59.
