Tribe offers both Varsity and Junior High Cross Country. The program is under the guidance of our Varsity Coach, Stephen Heleman (contact Stephen).
Practice begins the first week in August for Varsity and Junior High and runs through the end of the season in October. The season consists of four to five meets with the season ending TAIAO state meet in late October.
PRACTICES AND MEETS
Practices take place at Erhardt Field in Bastrop. Most practices and meets are in the late afternoon and evening during the week. All meets are away and take place all over Central Texas. We compete against other home-school, private and public/charter schools.
Tribe provides shorts and jerseys. Players are expected to provide all other equipment.
