XC / Track Block Athletic Class.  The block athletic class is for varsity and potential varsity athletes ONLY. Placement requires Coach Martinez’s approval.  Athletes can still be on the Cross Country and Track teams despite not being enrolled in this class. Cross Country runners are required to do Spring Track in order to be considered for this class, and remain in the class. All runners and athletes must commit to competing at League Preview, Prelims and Finals for both for Cross Country and Track.

 

 

Next year (2021-2022) enrollment will require registration and participation in summer camp, either XC or Track, as well as 75% attendance in the summer camp. Athletes that are enrolled in 2019-2020, and 2020-2021 classes are not guaranteed to enrollment for next year (2021-2022).

 

Any enrolled athlete that QUITS the XC and/or TRACK team will not be allowed to continue weight lifting in this class. If they are unable to transfer out, athletes will use the Block as a study period in the Athletic Department.
