2021 Elementary Cross Country
Grove City Athletics Club ELEMENTARY (grades 2-6) Cross Country Parents:
Please see the attached 2021 GCAC Elementary Cross Country Practice and Meet Flyer and Schedule!
OF NOTE: Several Cross Country Invitationals are now charging differently from past years for elementary runners. In the past we were able to pay an all-inclusive team rate (which is beneficial for us with such a large team and we didn’t really need to determine who was going; we simply submitted our entire roster). Now, some invitationals are charging $5 per elementary runner. This may alter to things:
1) We may need to determine who is attending each race several days prior to competition (so the race timer can print the race numbers) and payment is not required for kids who don’t show.
2) We may need to have you pay for some of these race entry fees (if the club does not cover it).
**More info will be sent out later about this, but we wanted to prepare you all in advance. Thank you for understanding!!!
Right now we only anticipate this impacting the Titusville and Slippery Rock University Invitationals.
- Elementary Cross Country is for incoming 2nd-6th graders ONLY.
- The first practice is Tuesday, July 27, 2021 from 8am – 9am at the Grove City Memorial Park Keystone Pavilion (across from basketball). We will have a short parent meeting directly after this practice at 9am.
- If you are currently a 2021 Grove City Athletics Club member, no additional registration is needed for cross country.

- Please have your child wearing running shoes and bring a water bottle to all practices/school. Running/baseball caps are encouraged for sun protection.
- Don’t be surprised if your child’s clothes and shoes get wet/muddy.
- Please be on time to pick up your kids (see schedule for end times and varying locations)! We are all volunteer coaches and appreciate this. Thank you!
We look forward to a fun and exciting cross country season with your child!
