              2020 Fall Cross Country Schedule

We received notice that the DCXC meet and the SYA meet have been cancelled this fall. 

NOVA AC is holding their meet. See team emails for details. Reg. is closed for the meet. 

We DO NOT take attendance at practices and do NOT need to be notified if your child will miss a practice. That said, if your child is absent due to Covid-19 illness or contact with someone who has confirmed Covid-19, let us know so we can take appropriate actions. 

Uniform purchases during the week will only occur in Fairfax. Accotink runners will need to attend a Fairfax practice to obtain a uniform unless other arrangements are made. 

ACCOTINK PRACTICES ARE TUESDAY AND THURSDAY THIS FALL. Tuesday practice meets under the train trestle and Thursday practice meets at the Danbury Forest Community Pool Parking Lot.  

Time Ranges on the Schedule: When you see a range of time, that does not mean you have to be there the entire time. That is the length of our meet times. Team emails will be sent to notify you of the specific details. 

TUESDAYS: The 7-8 and 11-12 age groups will be at Van Dyck Park. The 9-10 and 13 and older age groups will be at Daniel's Run.

CROSS COUNTRY EVENTS

FPYC Running follows USATF guidelines for XC distances for double groups. 6 & Under (6U) is not an official USATF age group but at local youth races there is at times an option for a 1K race to allow the 5-6 y/o runners to have a shorter distance and separate age category from the 8 & Under (7-8 y/o). 

To compete at the USATF and/or AAU XC National meets, runners must turn 7 years old in that calendar year. Cross Country Coaches National Youth Championships (CCCNYC) does allow runners who turn 6 in the calendar year to compete with the 7-8 y/o, running the 2K at their youth championship meet.
