Trinity Cross Country for 9th graders

Hello Future Trinity High School Parents and Students!

My name is Coach Gillum and I’d like to personally invite all 9th graders to consider joining the Trinity High School Cross Country Team! Yes, 9th graders can be part of a Trinity High School team! An affordable distance running sport, Cross Country is easy to join! When you sign up, you will automatically become a member of the team, even if you have never done it before! Our practices are in the mornings before school at 6:45AM so we do not interfere with most other activities and classes on campus. In fact, you don’t even have to be in the “Cross Country Class” period because of the before school practices. This allows you more opportunities to take classes that you need while still participating in an extracurricular activity! Make sure to read the 9th grade participation information that is attached to this email!

Cross Country is both a team and individual sport. Practices and the meets are outside! This is a nice way to participate safely in a school activity. One of the best reasons to join Cross Country is that you get to be part of the well-respected Trinity Athletic Program!

Finally, Cross Country is a no-cut sport, meaning there are no “try-outs.” If you are academically eligible, you are on the team! The only requirements for students are to be at all Trinity team practices, go to meets, and to maintain eligibility. You will have to complete some required participation forms and have a current physical on file at the school, but that’s it!

Use this sign-up link to join today!
