Morton Cross Country 2020
Morton preps for cross country
Is your child interested in running cross country for Morton? Cross country is a sport that involves running distances of 1.5-3 miles across a field or countryside, compared to a track or road. If interested, please see the below information.
At this time, we cannot schedule tryouts, but students can (not mandatory) condition in preparation. In order to minimize gatherings all conditioning will be done individually. There are two steps that must be completed in order to receive the conditioning workouts.
Please have a physician complete a KHSSA sports physical (different from a regular physical) for your child. A sports physical is required to participate in any sport in FCPS. The form can be also be obtained at a doctor’s office.
Once the physical is complete, please email (PDF, scan, picture, etc.) the form to Emily Snowden for girls or Kevin Crump for boys. Once the coach receives the form, they will email a conditioning workout plan. Also, if you think Morton has your child’s sports physical on file (physicals are good for one year), you can email the coaches this information and they will confirm before sending the conditioning plan (there will be a slight delay).
If you would like to continue receiving information through email, please fill out the cross country interest form. This does not commit your child or mean they are on the team.
