Welcome to the 2016 Cross Country season! Here are a few details and important dates for you.

You can find all things cross country at our website –


Our first preseason practice begins Tuesday, August 9th at 8:30 a.m. We'll meet by the baseball field to take care of paperwork. We'll also meet Thursday at 8:30 for those who need to take care of paperwork. Practice will begin at 9. After that, practices will be Tuesday and Thursday from 9-11 a.m. until school starts. Once school begins, practices will begin promptly at 6 a.m.

All Cross Country events can be found on the calendar at www.lbjxc.org/calendar

FORMS: ALL athletes must complete the physical/UIL paperwork before you can begin official practices on August 9th. Forms are found online at http://austinisdathletics.com/home-2/important-forms/.

New to LASA: if you are new to LASA this year, and might be running on varsity, you need to complete the Previous Athletic Participation Form and get it to me ASAP. You can download the form at http://www.uiltexas.org/athletics/forms.

Meet dates: please check the calendar on the website for the meet dates. I expect that everyone will participate in the AISD invitational on Sept 2, and I hope that most athletes will participate in every meet.

Parent meeting: We'll have a parent meeting on Thursday, August 18th at 7 p.m. in the cafeteria. Please plan on attending.

Parent volunteers: we are in need of parent volunteers to help set up and tear down at each meet. If you are interested in helping or are interested in coordinating the volunteers, please let me know.

Wishlist: we are in need of at least two tarps for the athletes to sit on at meets. We could also use plastic zip ties, stakes to hold down the tarps, and a hammer. We could also use one more tent.

See you soon!
