1. Summer Running is Optional. It is nice to run with others when possible.

Starts June 15th. M-F at 8am-9:30am to be safe for rides. Meet near the East entry to the high school. There will be no water running at the school all summer so bring a water bottle. A captain will be present every day. A coach will be present MWF. The girls use GroupMe to communicate. Please send the cell numbers you want added, to Maddie Hauenstein at 952-240-3402. Coaches also post at Prior Lake Girls Cross Country on Facebook. 

2. Season update. Official practice starts August 17th. Fall registration should open in July. Sports physicals are required every 3 years. Here is the link to the form. Get this scheduled and done in July if possible as appointments may be hard to come by. The link to the sports physical form is below.

3. Fall camp is scheduled at Whitewater State Park August 31 - September 3rd.

This is pending the opening of camp grounds. There are many bunk houses so we would be able to have a safe social distancing arrangement. More information once the season starts. All girls 7-12th grade would be encouraged to attend.
