Cross Country

"DEFEND THE TRADITION"

If you are a young man looking to build friendships and be part of a historic program in the state of Missouri, SLUH Cross Country is the home for you. We push you to buy into something larger than yourself. We work hard and hold every team member to high expectations. Instead of a series of teams differentiated by age and level, we operate daily as one single program. There are no cuts; but we do stress the importance of commitment. We also have a lot of fun. The first official practice day of the 2019 season is Monday, August 12, though summer opportunities abound. Contact Head Coach Joe Porter at jporter@sluh.org with any questions or to sign up for next season's roster.

Athlete Forms

Recovering Athlete Report

If you are requesting a lighter workout, an alternative workout, or a day off today due to a diagnosed or suspected injury, please complete this form by the end of your lunch period. You are never free to skip practice. You must complete this form before speaking to a coach about the issue. Never assume that your plan for the day is what the coaches will have you do. Under most circumstances, you will still be working out, doing therapy or performing service to the team. Fill out a new form every day you are requesting consideration for your situation, unless you have directly worked out a long-term plan with the head coach.

Cross Training Report

After first being approved by the coaches, any runner who is not involved in regular daily practice due to an injury or potential injury should be cross training every day, according to a specific program approved by a trainer or physician and your coach. On days when you are not cross training, you will likely be asked to serve the team in some capacity. Use this form every day to report your workout. Completely fill in in the requested numbers. Failure to give an adequate, complete, daily description will be considered the same as skipping practice.

Study Group Daily Report

The Study Group is a group of athletes who have asked for extra support and flexibility from the coaching staff in order to be academically successful. Being a member of the Study Group commits the athlete to completing this report every school day. If you faithfully meet this commitment and find that you are in a situation that requires you to miss a meet or a practice in order to keep up with academic work, the head coach may excuse you. You are never excused without the approval of the head coach. Our hope is that a daily piece of communication will help you be more aware of what you need to do and will help the coaching staff to support you in your studies. If a pattern of repeated requests for absence develops, the coaches, you, and your parents will meet to discuss the situation.
