Elementary and Middle School Cross Country Program

2019 Elementary and Middle School Cross Country Program

The Knoxville Youth Athletics Elementary and Middle School Cross Country Program is an eight week program for all girls and boys grades 3-8 that teaches the fundamentals of distance running with weekly competitions including an Area Championship meet that allows participants a chance to qualify for the Tennessee State Middle and Elementary School Cross Country Championships in October.  In many counties surrounding Knoxville (including Knox) cross country is not a funded school sport at the elementary and middle school level.  The Knoxville Youth Athletics serves to help fund, foster and expand a sport that provides positive health benefits to its participants.  If your school does not have a program and you would like one we can get you started.  Everyone is welcome, whether your school has a program or not, you are home-schooled or you just love to run.

You must register online prior to your first practice (no exceptions).
