Open to all boys and girls of Middle school age (grades 6, 7, 8) or Elementary School Age (grades 3,4 and 5). We realize that certain school districts have different grade designations for Middle School and Elementary School but we will need to adhere to one standard. The program is open to all public, private schools and home schooled athletes.
Middle School athletes must compete in at least one regular season meet in order to be eligible for the championship meet. Home schooled and or individuals who do not have schools participating may compete as unattached, part of a school team closest to their normal public school zone or as part of a recognized home school cooperative.
The same applies to elementary school.
Middle School - 2 miles for Boys and Girls / Elementary School - 1 Mile
These times are at your discretion. We recommend that you practice a minimum of 2-3 times a week in order to fully prepare the kids to complete a 2-mile (or 1 mile for Elementary) course comfortably. Your initial goal should be to promote positive fitness goals with performance issues taking a back seat to participation. There will be a guide published on www.memphisyouthathletics.org/coaches--page.html to help you with sample training programs.
