XC Tryout Information 2021
Dear prospective Victor cross-country runners and parents,
I hope this letter finds you well.
Here is some important information relating to our fall season.
All prospective XC student-athletes must join our VXC Google classroom. All interested runners should email Coach Hunkovic for the class code at firstname.lastname@example.org
All members of our Google classroom are asked to complete and submit a preseason survey. I will create an individualized training program for each athlete, based on the results from this survey.
VXC will host optional team activities on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. beginning on July 5th, 2021, through August 19th, 2021. We will meet on our VCS campus near backstop #16 across from the tennis courts. While these practices are optional, they are strongly encouraged for all prospective XC runners who hope to make our JV and varsity teams.
Fall sports registration will open on 8/2/21. No prospective XC student-athlete may participate in our preseason practices unless he or she is medically cleared. Here is the link for VCS athletic certification:
Mandatory preseason practices will begin on August 23rd, 2021, and run Monday through Friday from 3:30 P.M. to 5:30 P.M. until school begins. We will meet on our VCS campus near backstop #16 across from the tennis courts.
All student-athletes who wish to participate on our XC team must complete the following multi-day tryout during our preseason.
-8/23/21 – 8/26/21: Dynamic warm-up evaluation
-8/30/21: Body weight/strength circuit test
-9/2/21: 5K race
The results of these evaluations will determine who makes both our boys and girls JV and varsity rosters.
