Team Contract XC – Uniform Request Form

El Toro Cross Country is based on the premise that running/physical activity and participation are important for all student-athletes, regardless of their level of athletic skill or ability.  Through participating each day of CLASS (yes, it is a class); student-athletes will learn how to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives. In addition, we hope to instill the enjoyment and discipline required with daily running/physical activities by coaching each student-athlete to compete with fair play, good sportsmanship, and an understanding of the importance of maintaining physical fitness along with good basic nutrition and a positive attitude.  Cross Country may not have been your first choice but please respect this great sport!!
