Summer Training Week #1

For our first week of Summer training, we are going to use this week to get our running legs back under us and just focus on getting some consistency. We will be meeting with the Marshfield XC team for a run on Thursday. Bring an old Mountain view xc shirt if you want to do a T-shirt swap. Also, Friday we will have a later Practice at 3pm which will be followed by a team BBQ at 5pm. We will have it at Miller’s Landing along the River. Feel free to bring munchies, a side dish or beverages you may want. We will provide the hot dogs and burgers. Should be a fun first week!

  • Summer Training Begins: June 25th- The first week will be on the lighter side. I originally was planning on starting the first week of July, but the Marshfield XC team will be in town for a training camp and they want to get together for some runs and possibly a bbq/river float. still waiting on details from them. Once we get past that first week, the voluntary practice schedule will be Mon, Tue, Thur, Fri at 8 am with various locations. We will also get together for team long runs every other Saturday at a fun location. Any parents that want to be involved with Summer practices are more than welcome! 
  • OSAA Moratorium Week July 22-28- No contact between Coaches and Athletes. 
  • Cultus XC Camp- August 13-16- Cultus is on! We pushed it back a little further from last year. This will actually be the first week of official practices, so it will be a fun way to kick off the official XC season.
