Take family vacations, trips, and/or college trips before summer camp. There is an attendance policy for returning XC runners! 

 

SUMMER CAMP ATTENDANCE POLICY:  

New Runners.  It is mandatory to participate in the Summer Training Camp.  In Cross Country, all runners race 3 miles.  The Summer Training camp will gradually get new runners in shape by September to race 3 miles.  New runners have no attendance policy for summer camp but it is extremely important to make the effort and attend everyday.  There are no try-out for new runners.  EMAIL COACH MARTINEZ AT rmartinez@materdei.org with questions.

 

 

Returning Runners.  It is mandatory to participate in the Summer Training Camp. All Returning runners cannot miss more than 5 days.  If so, returning runners will have to try-out to be on the team.  Any returning runner who misses more than 5 days will be required to try-out at the end of the August to remain on the team.  Only VARSITY level runners will be given any consideration for their absences.  VARSITY level runners also must understand that missing any day will compromise their position on the varsity team.
