723 Reads



Creekside sports begin the week of August 22.  Please remember that BEFORE your child can participate, they must have a current physical on file in the Creekside office.  (Current = physical was done on 4/15/16 or later.)  Please make sure it is completely filled out and signed in the designated places.

Boys & Girls Cross Country:

  • Practice will be held at Creekside Middle School starting on Aug 22-26 and the 29th and 30th at 8:00 am and finishing at 9:00 am.
  • Once school has begun practice will continue to be held at Creekside Middle School from 3:00 to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Pick up is at Creekside Middle School.
  • A good pair of running shoes and comfortable athletic clothing is all you need to run cross country. Cross Country spikes are optional, although they do give a runner an advantage because of their light weight and aggressive tread.   A water bottle is good have as well because some time water is not available at the running location. A good attitude and willingness to work hard and have fun is an absolute requirement.
