Cross Country
Athletic Clearing Process
All potential athletes need to meet with Mr. Ryan West, the athletic director, and have the following items completed:  physical, eligibility check and emergency card.  In addition, all athletes and parents must sign the Athletic Code of Conduct.  Athletes have until the first athletic contest to turn in pay to participate.  Please call Mrs. Carr, the athletic secretary, to schedule your appointment.

Attire

Please arrive dressed and ready to participate.  You will need shirt, shorts, supportive shoes and to bring your own water bottle.

Shoes
Although it is not expected for you to go out and purchase new shoes specific for running, not wearing the appropriate shoes can result in injury.  Stores such as Complete Runner in Burton (on the corner of Dort and Court) and Elite Feet (downtown Lapeer), specialize in finding a shoe fit for your individual needs.  Complete Runner, for example, will watch how you walk and run to determine how you land on your feet and what type of shoe you need.

Practice
All parents are expected to pick their child up on time from both practice and games.  Students are dismissed from practice at Rolland-Warner at 5:15 p.m. unless otherwise announced.  For all away games, on the bus ride home, students will begin calling parents to notify them they will be back at Rolland-Warner within 20 minutes.  Coaches do expect students to be picked up within 15 minutes of the bus having arrived back at school.  Late pick-ups will cause an inconvenience for everyone and their families.
