We use a Google Group and a SportsYou team to manage all XC communications. You can access links to both of the communication outlets under the communication tab above, or down this page.

  • The Google Group is great for things like asking questions or planning carpools. Parents, use the Google Group to get in the know.

  • The SportsYou is great for instant communication with Coaches or captains. Runners, use SportsYou to quickly text back with a question or comment.
