The DPL offers Cross Country meets for grades 5 through 8 during the month of October. Teams are formed with boys and girls and divided by junior varsity and varsity with grades 5/6 and 7/8. This is a great sport for the fall and a good way to prepare for basketball in the winter.
Practices will begin August 14. Practices will be Monday, and Thursday night from 6 to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at Brookhaven College behind the tennis courts. Athletes should bring a towel, and a water bottle to practice.
Registration is now open. Athletes should register prior to attending practice.
The 2017 meets will be at Norbuc on 10/7, 10/21, and 10/28.
All athletes age 11 or older must take an Impact Base Line test for concussions. The test is good for 2 years. There is no fee for the test. All athletes must have a completed Pre-Worksheet and a Release Form to enter testing.
