We are excited to have your child run Cross Country for Abbott in the fall of 2017! As coaches, we are passionate runners ourselves and look forward to sharing our love of the sport with each and every child.  You are responsible to pick-up your runner from each practice and meet on time. Transportation is only provided to the events.


    As we have done in the past, runners are to wear their own black running shorts. Ladies, please no spandex.

    Uniform tops must be purchased by Monday, September 11th. The price is $25. Please send in cash. They are lightweight, mesh tech-t’s. Your child may keep the top.  During races, shirts must be tucked in, no jewelry of any kind, including no earrings! Watches are allowed.


    Runners must have supportive running shoes. Please no NIKE frees, no minimalist shoes, no lightweight foam, tennis or court shoes. Spikes are not used in our middle school league. We recommend the New Balance or ASICS line of shoes.


    PARENTS: To run at our first practice, students must register and pay-to-participate on-line at www.westbloomfieldathletics.com,  print and sign the athletic contract, turn in a Blue physical card dated after 4/15/2017 and a white insurance card.


    Practices go until 4:00 each day. We often train off-site on the WB-trail. We try to have everyone back to Abbott by 4:00 pm, but occasionally we have a few runners off their usual pace which makes us get back later. DO NOT PANIC if we are occasionally late. We will send a REMIND notice if this occurs.


    1ST PRACTICE: We will have a runner meeting on Thursday September 7th from 3:00-3:45 pm in room 3A.  Our first practice will be on Friday September 8th from 3:00-4:30 pm.  Runners can not attend practice if they do not have all their paperwork completed including their pay-to-play.


    Please sign up to our CC REMIND account by texting: @abbottcc to 81010.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us!
