Cross-Country

The Haverford School cross-country


Overview

The Haverford School’s cross-country program is focused on overall development throughout one's high school running career. We focus on developing aerobic strength and muscular endurance by taking a long term approach to training. We want our athletes to be lifelong runners and to have a foundation to achieve their best running at the next levels of the sport.

The coaching staff works hard to challenge all runners, regardless of ability level, to reach their potential. To that end, our young men are given personalized training schedules, have individual goal meetings, and are expected to work hard and be committed to the team. We emphasize teamwork, camaraderie, and character in the hope of helping to create men of character and good will.
