NEW RUNNERS-Please email Coach Greg Johnson at gjohnson@btcatholic.org so that he can add you to the Cross Country roster. 

UNIFORM INFORMATION:

All returning runners do not need to buy a cross country uniform. This year's uniform is the same as last year's singlet and shorts. It is also the same as our track uniform so if you purchased the singlet and shorts for track, you will not need to purchase them again for cross country.
New boys will need to buy the singlet and shorts. New girls will need to buy the singlet and either the compression shorts or green breakaway shorts.
Varsity girl runners compete in the Under Armour Women's On the Court 4 compression shorts in black. These shorts are necessary for all girls competing in varsity races. If you purchase the compression shorts for your daughter, you will not need to purchase the green breakaway shorts as well.
I have the link to our online store below. The online store closes Saturday June 29. Please order the cross country uniforms before the online store closes.


ALL RUNNERS 
You will need to complete information on Magnus and ArbiterAthlete. You should have gotten a packet of mail recently from BT with a lot of information. There are pages in there to let you know how to complete both processes. Those forms can also be found here:
ArbiterAthlete
Magnus
You will need to complete ArbiterAthlete before you can participate this summer, and Magnus needs to be completed before you come to school in August.
Unfortunately, we are not allowed to let athletes participate in our summer cross country practices until all forms have been submitted and approved on ArbiterAthlete so please try to get all of the forms turned in on as soon as possible. I appreciate your patience with the turning in of these forms. 
If you have any questions regarding ArbiterAthlete or Magnus, you can contact our head athletic trainer, Mr. Chris Leeds at:


I have some information below regarding summer cross country practices.
Cross Country practice starts Tuesday May 28th at 8:00 a.m. at the football stadium concessions stand (the grey building at the flag pole end of the football stadium). As long as your runner has all their forms turned in on ArbiterAthlete, they will be able to join us for the first day of practice. Practice will typically end at 9:30 a.m. for new runners and 10 a.m. for returning runners. There will be workouts Monday through Friday every day of the summer at 8:00 a.m. (except GHSA dead week, July 1-7). On most Saturdays (except July 6) over the summer, we will do long runs that start and end at Kennesaw Mountain's Cheatham Hill parking lot. We start the runs at 8:00 a.m. and typically finish the long runs and stretching by 10:00. For directions to Cheatham Hill, type in Cobb County Youth Museum either in Google Maps or your GPS. Follow the directions for Cobb County Youth Museum as they will take you all the way to Cheatham Hill Drive. Once you take a left on Cheatham Hill Drive, follow Cheatham Hill Drive for about half a mile to 3/4 of a mile until it dead ends in a parking lot. We start our long runs from this parking lot.

There are a couple important notes:

1. There will be cross country tryouts and cuts this year. There will be a 3200 time trial in August. To make the boys team, freshman boys will have to run 20:00 or faster, sophomore boys will have to run 18:00 or faster, junior boys will have to run 17:00 or faster and senior boys will have to run 16:30 or faster. To make the girls team, freshman girls will have to run 22:00 or faster, sophomore girls will have to run 20:00 or faster, junior girls will have to run 19:00 or faster and senior girls will have to run 18:30 or faster. For each summer practice a runner attends, they will be allowed a two second cushion on their 3200 time trial time.

2. For each summer practice that a runner attends, they get two seconds towards their lettering time. The lettering time for boys is 18:30 and for girls is 22:00. If a boy were to attend 30 summer practices, they would receive one minute towards their lettering time meaning they would need to run 19:30 to letter instead of 18:30. If a girl were to attend 30 summer practices, their lettering time would be 23:00 rather than 22:00.

3. There is a BT bus available for transporting runners to Kennesaw Mountain on Saturdays. It leaves from the senior parking lot at 7 a.m. on Saturday mornings. The senior parking lot is the parking lot right in front of our school, next to our theater. The bus will usually return to BT sometime in between 10:30 and 10:45.
