Ascension’s Cross Country team exists to help students develop their skill and stamina as runners, while promoting a healthy lifestyle.
The team is open to students in grades six through eight. Practices take place at Wickham Park and occasionally at other locations in Melbourne. Students only run where they are constantly monitored. Teams hold formal practices at least once a week and runners should be committed to additional running on their own time. This schedule provides needed flexibility as many students participate in a variety of sports and other extracurricular activities. The runners should bring their own water/sports drink, sneakers, and proper athletic wear. The practice times are determined by the coach.
Meets are scheduled with other local Catholic schools and Cross Country teams run with other schools in a variety of meets. Scores will not be kept, as the goal of this program is to encourage students to do their personal best.
Parents should log in to the Parent Portal Page for current information on schedules, contact information and more.
All questions should be directed to the Athletic Director, who can be contacted through the school office or by calling 321-254-1595.
Cross Country begins in August.
