            We would like to welcome all of you to the Revere Middle School Cross-Country team, especially those who are competing in the sport for the first time.  We look forward to working with all of you to help you achieve your own personal athletic goals.  I hope to make this cross-country season successful, rewarding and FUN!

            Cross-country is a sport where EVERYONE participates.  Everyone runs the same two-mile course  (don’t worry, you can do it!) and we score based on our top five runners.  But it takes the ENTIRE team to make us a success!  It doesn’t matter if you are a runner who finishes first or last, everyone is important on this team.  Bring out a friend to the team.



Go to the Revere Web Site,click on “Minuteman Athletics”, click "Teams",click on “Cross Country”,  click on “Middle School CC Information”



            In order to participate in any sport at RMS, YOU MUST HAVE AN Athletic Participation/Physical Exam Form on file in the assistant principal’s office.All forms are available on the Revere web site.   Physicals are good for one year from the date of your doctor’s signature.  You must have this form turned into the school office before you can participate in a practice or meet.       


Practice and Race Sites:

            Practices are held at the Bath Community Center.  It is an excellent training site with wooded trails to run and lots of hills (I’m most excited about that last one!).  Our course is one of the toughest in the area and training on it makes you tougher!


Mandatory practice officially begins on Monday, August 4 

       ***NEW PRACTICE TIME*** 9:00-10:30am
Practices prior to the start of school will be held Monday - Friday from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. at Bath Community Center (BCC) on Cleveland-Massillon Road.  PARENTS PLEASE PICK UP YOUR ATHLETE PROMPTLY AT 10:30 SO THE COACHES MAY GO HOME.

            Once school begins we will take a bus to BCC after school just as we did last season. Practice after school ends at 4:30 p.m. Parents pick up their athletes promptly at 4:30 at BCC.




            Cross-country is run in all weather (We love mud!).  However, if there is lightning and we are at Bath Community Center, please pick your child up at the pavilion.  If the weather is threatening check this web site that morning to see if practice has been cancelled.




            You will need a new pair of “running” shoes for the season.  Be sure to tell the person at the shoe store the sport you are going to be running in them.  You do not need to have a pair of “spikes”, but if you do you will need a pair of regular running shoes for practice.  I have a coupon from Second Sole running store in Merriman Valley. They are offering a great deal on shoes. It is also recommended that you have a good quality sport watch to time yourself on your runs and during your races.   BRING A WATER BOTTLE TO PRACTICE.


Meet Schedule:

            Our competition begins in late August.  We will be participating in meets against other Suburban League schools on Tuesdays and at invitationals on Saturdays.  EVERY team member will be able to participate in every meet, including the invitationals with the exception of The Legends race which is for a team of our top 7 runners.  We are finalizing the schedule, but you will be running 5 regular meets and 4 invitationals.


Cross-Country Booster:

            There is a $25.00 booster fee for the season.  This supplies all athletes with a custom T-shirt, Gatorade and snacks after each meet, and a post-season pizza party.


Uniforms and Sweats:

            These are supplied by the school and will be issued prior to the first meet.



The time and hard work you put in this summer will pay off during the season.

This will be an exciting and fun year and we look forward to running with all of you!
