Registration opens April 1.
Read the Program Dates/Policies page for program dates/deadlines.

About the program:

The OYAA cross country program offers an organized youth cross country team in the summer that is for athletes in the Olentangy community who are entering grades 3 - 6 in August. This gives boys and girls the opportunity to have fun while also developing their skills in the sport of cross country. There are four OYAA teams; we encourage you to register for the team that is in your local high school attendance area.

*Students entering 7th grade should be training with their middle school teams in the summer and are too old to compete in OYAA cross country races.

OYAA’s Cross-country program will include:

1. Instruction and Team Practices for ALL Participants - Sponsored by the Varsity Cross-Country Programs.

2. Cross-Country Meets – all races will begin at 6:30 pm (Girls race first, then boys). All races will be held at Liberty Park 2845 Home Rd, Powell OH 43065.

3. All athletes will receive a running singlet and short, a t-shirt, and finisher awards at the final XC Meet.

4. All athletes will receive discounts at Fleet Feet Sports for shoes and running apparel.

COST - $95.00 per runner

2022 Practice times & locations (edited 6/30/22):

Practices will include instruction on warming up, running, and skill-based activities. Team building and the joy of running will be a primary focus!

Practices will begin early June and you can go to another “team’s” practice if that works better for your schedule and then still race in your school’s uniform.
