The Running Club is geared toward the development of the athlete. This training focuses on providing athletes with a solid base of speed and endurance as well as spending ample time fine tuning technique and form. The first semester is focused towards stamina and endurance (cross country running) and the second semester is focused towards other disciplines in athletics. Running games are a major part of the CCA to develop the students speed, agility and stamina. The students have the opportunity to participate in the ACSIS Cross Country Running event in November and the ACSIS Track and Field event in the month of May. In preparations for this events, morning sessions will be offered on Mondays from 6.45 to 7.40am in the months of September and October. The CCA will sometimes be conducted off the school campus, at other schools or in nearby parks. In such cases, bus transportation will be provided, as necessary.
