2016 Cross Country Season

The Central Florida Gliders Cross Country  program is open to boys and girls age division 9 and older (born 2007 or earlier).  The season starts the beginning of September and runs through the first week in December, culminating with the USATF and/or AAU Junior Olympics. Any athlete may join the club at anytime through the end of October. High school athletes may continue to join the club through the end of the school XC season.

Practices take place in the Altamonte Springs area and are typically on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays between 6:00-7:30pm (earlier once the days get shorter and DST starts). Athletes are also required to train on their own at home 1-3 times per week, depending on age and goals. The practice and meet schedule will be added once registration opens in mid-August. To join the club, simply fill out the online registration form in advance, pay the membership fee, familiarize yourself with our website and show up at the next scheduled practice ready to run. See you there!

Congratulations Coach Wise!
