Blue Knights High School Cross Country Program

The St. Louis Christian Homeschool Sports Association Blue Knights offers a Cross Country (XC) program:

  • The High School program will field teams that compete against local public and private high schools as a MSHSAA affiliate program.
  • The middle school program mostly is a training program with the option to run in the National meet in October.  If there is sufficient interest, we will form a MS team and add a couple of competitive meets against local schools.
  • We need some parents helping out with practices and/or coaching (especially for middle school).

Training Schedule:
  • Athletes should be running on their own June through July (≥3 times per week).
  • HS athletes should minimally be able to run 3 miles without walking by August 1st.
