COVID-19 – THE MYA BOARD WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS SITUATION AND WILL FOLLOW GUIDELINES FROM THE CDC AND SHELBY COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT..
Our Fall Cross Country Program runs September to October. The 5-6 week season consists of 4-5 regular season meets and a championship meet. The series concludes with a regional championship meet that allows athletes from all over West TN a chance to qualify for the TN State Elementary and Middle School XC Championships in October. Volunteer coaches are needed to coach school based teams. Coaches can include school PE teachers, parent coaches, or other volunteers at their Elementary School, Middle School or the community. In most cases, this ‘team’ is considered a school club, supported by the parents and PTSOs. MYA will serve as your meet director and facilitator during the season. We do not hold practices nor train athletes during this part of the season. If your school does not have a program and you would like one then we can get you started! Everyone is welcome, whether your school has a program or not, you are home-schooled, or just love to run!!
Open to all boys and girls of Elementary (grades 3-5), Middle (grades 6-8), & High School (grades 9-12) Age. We realize that certain school districts have different grade designations for Middle School and Elementary School but we will need to adhere to one standard. The program is open to all public, private schools and home schooled athletes.
Home schooled and or individuals who do not have schools participating may compete as unattached, part of a school team closest to their normal public school zone or as part of a recognized home school cooperative.
Elementary School - 1 Mile
Middle School - 2 Mile
High School - 5K
These times are at your discretion. We recommend that you practice a minimum of 2-3 times a week in order to fully prepare the kids to complete a 2-mile (or 1 mile for Elementary) course comfortably. Your initial goal should be to promote positive fitness goals with performance issues taking a back seat to participation. There will be a guide published on www.memphisyouthathletics.org/coaches--page.html to help you with sample training programs.
