Start Date: Per UIL guidelines (governing body of high/middle school sports, the 5A/6A conferences cannot start sports until September 8th. In the meantime all athletes will be in an off season program during the class period.
Schedules: You can find the XC schedule on our athletic page under schedules or follow this LINKPreparation: Athletes can start preparing by running on your own. A meet race distance is 2.0 miles (high school is 3.0 miles) starting at 5pm. Start getting acclimated to the heat at this time of evening. My recommendation is to walk this distance before automatically trying to run during this time in the evening (unless you are already acclimated to it). Then slowly work up to jogging a small distance then build your way up.
Paperwork: All athletes must have a physical and Rank One paperwork on file. Rank one paperwork can be found here (https://prosperisd.
rankonesport.com/New/Home.aspx ). Physicals, ALL incoming 7th graders must obtain a physical. If you are a current 8th grader and you were enrolled in 7th grade athletics (2019-2020 school year) at Rogers/Hays/Reynolds then your physical is good for another year and you DO NOT need another one. If you were a 7th grader enrolled in athletics and a different school district we will need a physical. If you have a copy of the physical that you gave the old school district in the 2019-2020 school year then you can bring us a copy. If you can reach out to the coaches at your old school district to get them to email you a copy of the 2019-2020 physical, then you can email this us. If the other two ways aren't possible then a current 2020-2021 physical is needed by your physician.XC Meeting: When time gets closer I will have a in class XC meeting regarding practice time, meets, etc...Shoes: A good pair of running shoes would be helpful. This does not mean to run out and buy new shoes. Athletes will be accumulating lots of mileage on their shoes. When this happens, running shoes will break down quickly and usually will no longer support the runner and injuries may occur. If at all possible shoes that support the athletes foot well and have that "extra eyelet" at the top of the collar of the shoe would be great so that the runner can place their laces in a heel lock position.
