Practice Start Date
The first day for team practices is August 16. Prior to August 16 strength and conditioning is permitted with cross country coaches being able to supervise the conditioning that is open to all students at the school. No team activities may take place until practice starts.

Cross Country Teams Required to have Fourteen days of practice
KSHSAA rule 34-1-1 states that “No member school shall participate in a meet until it has had (14) days of training. This means if you start practice on August 17 and have a meet on September 3 you will need to have a team practice on a Saturday to get in 14 days of practice prior to the first meet. In order for it to be considered a team practice, a majority of the team members must be present.

Cross Country Runners Required to have NINE days of practice
KSHSAA Cross Country Rule 34 states a cross country runner must participate in nine days of practice with the team prior to participating in a meet.

Once a student begins practice with a school team, he/she may not participate on an outside/club team. Cross country athletes can’t run/participate in non-school sponsored races once they start practice with the school team. The rule was changed to provide consistency between other sports and to encourage runners to be loyal to their team and training program. Be certain to read and be familiar with the entirety of KSHSAA Rule 22.
