Fall 2017 NMS Boys & Girls Cross Country
Instructor: Coaches Way & Ball   
Join  the NMS Cross Country Group in Schoology for Team info and updates! 

Access Code:  C8ZH9-4WXGN


First Day of Practice:  Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Eligibility Requirements: North Middle School Cross Country is a team sport offered to sixth, seventh and eighth grade students.  Participation is open to enrolled students and residents of Menomonee Falls.

Description: Practices are held from 2:40-3:55 at the North Middle School Track. Athletes take all supplies needed from your school locker, go change in the locker rooms, by 2:45 start a warm-up lap or two on the track, then meet on the field by 2:50 for group stretches before running. Most days we will end practice with group "running" games.

Do not leave anything in locker room unless it is locked up!  Most students take all of their stuff to the track. You are not allowed to go back to your school locker after practice or after a meet.

A variety of practice work-outs will develop endurance, speed and flexibility.  A focus will be given to physical well-being, individual improvement, teamwork, and fun!

Membership limit: There are no cuts or tryouts.

Points to ponder regarding running...

I pasted a few paragraphs from his article that I found interesting.... Let's keep cross country fun! Coach Meske

Most young runners first experience with running in our society has unfortunately been punitive.Running suicides in Basketball practice. Drop a pass – make a fumble – incomplete a pass > “take a lap”. Penalty laps, extra sprints for being late or missing practice.The list goes on a on.One of
the most fundamental human locomotive activities outside of walking has been turned into drudgery by sports coaches near and far. Make any sense to you?

Solid aerobic development is not something achieved in a summer or fall but something that is built over years of consistent, measured training. Running is an activity that can benefit each and every one of your athletes for decades. It may not lead to athletic success and reward but it will set them on path of healthy living that will endure far beyond a tarnished medal or trophy.

Stop worrying about the clock and the distance of the course in cross-country races.There is no athletics governing body that certifies the distance of a cross-country course–EVEN THE IAAF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS! Courses distances are estimates at best.Course difficulty varies greatly from one course to the next thus making judgments about improvement based on time meaningless.Take down the clock in a cross-country race and you can still score the meet. Place of finish is of paramount importance and allows you to make judgments on improvement from race to race more effectively.The clock is only relevant when you get to the track – certified distance, reproducible surface and accurate timing.
