2015 Cross Country Season
***FREE ONE-WEEK TRIAL***
**Cross Country Registration is Now Open**
The 2015 Gliders Cross Country season started on Tuesday, September 1, 2015 with an information session and first practice at Sanlando Park (pavilion#1). Practices will be Mon, Tue & Thu at Sanlando Park from 6:00-7:30 in September, 5:30-7:00 in October and 4:45-6:00pm in November due to the lack of lighting, shortening days and the end of daylight savings time. This poses a major challenge for many, but we get through it with substitute at home workouts. Athletes are also expected to run at home Wednesdays and Saturdays. There will be occasional Saturday morning practices and meets too.
New for 2015, we will also be offering sprint, jumps and throws training for non-Cross Country runners (general strength and conditioning, agility, flexibility, technical) during the XC season on the same schedule and the same fee (dont worry, there will be no long runs for you!).
The AAU Cross Country National Championships will be December 5th 2015 in Danville, AL and the USATF Cross Country National Championships will be December 12, 2015 in Albuquerque, NM
Teams are made up of 5-8 runners in each 2 year age division, so make sure you recruit your fast friends.
2015 Track Season Summary
Practice started in February and in March the Gliders began to compete in local meets through May. At the end of May, the Gliders hosted its 23rd Annual Spring Track Classic, which was attended by over 700 athletes from all over Florida and several records were broken. Also in May, high school Gliders competed in the regional and state championships and later the Golden South meet.
Many thanks go to the Track Shack, Publix, Kohls, Glatting Foundation, Help Kids Compete, Lake Brantley High School, Sanlando Park and many other supporters that made this track season possible.
