We’re here! The start of the official XC season is upon us and with it some transitional time. First, we’ll be transitioning to afternoon practices and meeting at the school for the majority of practices. With this change, we’ll be adjusting to the schedule we’ll have when school starts. Also, many people who haven’t been able to workout in the mornings will be able to join us and in varying levels of fitness. So, we’ll start a new training cycle that allows for an ease into fitness.
Practices are now 5-days a week, and until school starts we’ll meet at 3pm for practice. Once school starts we’ll have to bump back the start time to 4pm, but the longer we can be done earlier in the evening, the better.

I will be using Remind for the most pertinent changes and information updates, like changes to practice schedules due to smoke. I’ll make sure if changes need to be made I’ll send a remind at least 30 minutes before the start of practice. Also, if you’re on Instagram, our team account is @mv_xc. Updates are put up there as well.
Be sure to check the schedule on Athletic.net to get meet dates. I’ll be providing information for each meet as they get closer and will be posting the information on this site.
