All students interested in joining the Cross-Country team should contact Head Coach Tim Lengel at email@example.com. This will get your name on the email contact list. Most of our information and updates are sent out through email.
Official practices start Monday, Aug. 21st. We will meet from 8:00 - 10:00 a.m., Monday through Friday, at The Haverford School track. We do not make cuts, and all are welcome to run. We have a Varsity and JV team, and all runners practice together and get training that caters to their experience level and goals.
The expectation is that all potential cross-country runners run over the summer. If you are new to the sport, your goal is to be able to run at least 30 minutes without stopping on the first day of practice. Anyone trying to make our varsity team should expect to train hard. It's unlikely that you will make the varsity if you only run 2-3 days a week during the off-season.
Contact Tim Lengel at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

The philosophy of the running programs at Haverford School is overall development through your high school running career. We focus on developing aerobic strength and muscular endurance by taking a long term approach to development. 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. Our student athletes are given personalized training schedules, have individual goal meetings, and are expected to work hard and be committed to the team. We also expect our students to live well-balanced academic, social, and athletic lives.
