We are also ordering our uniforms on Monday, so that we have time to receive them before the meets start. We do have some in inventory and you may pick those up at the  Parent meeting. It is very important that you order asap as they take 3 weeks to arrive. You can see the sizes at the Parent meeting on Wednesday. All new athletes will need to purchase a uniform if you do not already have one. It is the same uniform we had in track! 


Please attend the parent orientation meting on Wednesday August 3rd at 

6:00 pm at the City of Santa Clarita Activities Center 20880 Centre Pointe Pkwy. in the back Sequoia room. we will have a shoe vender and most sizes of uniforms available. This is a great time to ask questions and find out how the program works!!  

 

If you are new to Storm please make sure you upload a birth document asap. All new athletes need to order a uniform. If you have one from Track or last year, please check to make sure it fits. I will be ordering uniforms this week!

Cross Country is a competitive sport, all athletes will attend meets on Saturday, to be on the team. There will be no practice only athletes. Meets will start  September 3rd and will be most Saturdays until  October 29th. Meets will be held in locations in Santa Clarita, San Fernando and Antelope Valley.  

We have reached the point that we just can no longer accept athletes who only want to practice on our team, that takes away our coaches time in training our athletes who do compete, so our policy is that we do not accept practice only athletes.
