Please have runners at the meet 1 hour before they are due to run. If at all possible please attend the entire meet so the runners can cheer for the rest of the team. 1 week before the meet we will update the news page to inform which kids are JV/V/MS. This will likely stay the same for all meets but there will be some moving on the JV/V depending on who is coming to the meet. We will stack the fastest 7 runners on the V team. You can also look up our team at Atheletic.net under Greater Cabarrus Athletic Association.******* Runners need to sign up for weekday meets at least 2 weeks in advance through the google document that will be under team news.

General rules are listed under meet our team tab. We have several coaches. Please address any team management issues to Summer and any individual coaching issues to your child’s practice coach. Please do not tell coaches that you are or are not coming to meets. Address weekday meets through the google document and Saturday meets by emailing Summer.

PRACTICES- The meet and practice calendar can be found on our website. Go to www.GCAAStallions.com and look under the Cross Country tab.
