Long Trail School cross country competes in Vermont Principals Association Division IV and the Southern Vermont League.
Meets will occur on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Saturdays with potential fill-in meets here and there. The schedule is set in solidifying concrete; however, it has not completely dried. The Cross Country ADs and Coaches have had to reconstruct our entire Fall season. We are being as flexible as possible with the arrangement of meets for safety reasons, thus we are keeping the number of participating schools, thus athletes, to a low number. We will not have award ceremonies after the meets, nor will we offer snacks and drinks.
We are still figuring out the bus arrangements for meets during the week. Athletes will need to be transported to and from Saturday meets. The overall number of competition meets is lower than usual and we’ve separated MS and US for most of them. Athletes will need to compete in at least three meets prior to any end of the year Championships or State Finals. We are still trying to figure out exactly what is feasible for the later competitions.
Thank you for your patience and support; primarily with the athletes, but also with the schedule and transportation.
PRACTICE: Monday through Thursday 3:15-4:45 and Friday 12:45 – 2:45
Student-athletes must attend 10 practices before being eligible to participate in competitions. Athletes should make their best effort to attend all practices, unless another arrangement is made ahead of time with the coach and for good reason(s). For example, doctor appointments need to be scheduled way in advance. In general, skipping practice for “simple” reasons will not count.
