MBA Cross Country Team - Information

MBA CC Logo

Our team emphasizes, provides guidance and encourages individual goal-setting tailored to each student-runner. Our training methods embrace the philosophy know as effort-based training.


Information For "New Runners" & Their Parents:Running Attributes

Practices are after school, 2:30 - 4:15 PM Mon. thru Fri. (some exceptions). On holidays, staff meeting days, or teacher workshop days, team practices will NOT be held. Runners are urged to run distance on off-practice & meet dates and weekends, in order to maintain and/or increase running endurance. Safe running practices must always be observed: proper footwear and clothing, safe run locations, running with a partner(s) or parent, access to water, and considering weather conditions.

Training and race runs will be both on and off the MBA campus and will include the grounds of Somers HS and the Field Road Park. It is critical that all athletes understand that off-site runs are a privilege that requires students exhibit trust-worthy behavior while moving through this expanse. Coaches will use their discretion regarding this privilege.
