Fall Cross Country

SYSA Cross Country is a fun, recreational fall program for all youth, grades 1st-6th. The Cross Country season begins in September, with practices usually beginning the week school starts.

There are 5 Saturday meets that make up the Cross Country season. The meets consist of a mile run and are located at different Spokane area parks. Our volunteer coaches are usually parents who enjoy running and want to share their passion with area youth. The Cross Country teams practice evenings, twice a week prior to and through the season.
