Practice Schedule

Runners, we will practice each Monday, Tuesday and Thursday until 3:30pm. Should there be issues with school events, weather, etc, I will have an announcement as early as possible and will send out a notification via remind. Sign up for Remind by texting @egmsxc18 to 81010.  It is important that students and parents sign up for remind. 


Welcome to EGXC!

Cross Country is a great way to exercise and be part of a team sport here at Elm Grove Middle School. There are certain responsibilities that fall on the athletes, including (but not limited to) maintaining a minimum GPA and behaving in a socially responsible manner. Students unable to do either will be excused from the team. 

In the locker below, you will find the cross-country code of conduct and expectations for Parkway High School. As our program feeds into theirs and we work closely together, you will find that our policies mirror what they do.

2018 Parent Letter

Dear Parent,

Your son/daughter has expressed an interest in joining the Elm Grove Cross Country Team for 2018-19. This is an excellent opportunity for students to join an extracurricular activity, engage in physical exercise with friends for a healthier life, and join in the spirit of competition in a sport that South Bossier has traditionally excelled in.

Cross Country is a fully sanctioned sport by the school board, and there are GPA requirements in order to stay on the team. Students that do not meet their academic obligations, team obligations (by missing three practices with no notice, not practicing at home, disrespect, etc), or social obligations (excessive discipline) will be removed from the team and not allowed to return for the school year. Fees will not be returned for dismissed students.

There will be a fee of $40, payable by August 27th, for students wishing to join to provide a cross-country jersey and cover the entrance fee to all of our competitions. Students will be expected to have transportation to and from Saturday events. They will also need to be picked up from Thursday meets.

In addition, your athlete will have a fundraising page from FanCloth. Last year, we had many parents who inquired about shirts, jackets, warm-up gear, and so-on for both themselves and their runners. This organization will allow you to order the gear you wish.  

Students that are habitually late to be picked up from practice will be excused from the team. Finally, runners are expected to go on one individual run on Saturday or Sundays. You will want these runs to be approximately two miles in length each time, and your time should improve each week. We will continue to build longer distances during the week. Feel free to contact me with any questions.


Have Fun,

Coach Brunson
