2024 Cross Country Registration

is now OPEN



Cross Country is a competitive sport, all athletes must attend meets on Saturday, to be on the team. There will be no practice only athletes.

We have reached the point that we just can no longer accept athletes who only want to practice on our team, that takes away our coaches time in training our athletes who do compete, so our policy is that we do not accept practice only athletes.

The payment option is a separate option.

The price is $225.00 for the first and second athletes, and $125.00 for each athlete in the same family after that, up to 4 of the same household.

1 Athlete $225.00

3 Athletes $575.00

4 Athletes $700.00

From Alan Bingham, President of the Santa Clarita Track Club, Inc. – Storm

On behalf of the SCTC board of directors, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2024 Cross Country Season.

The Santa Clarita Track Club is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 tax exempt organization that promotes running sports for youth in the Santa Clarita Valley. Our Tax ID number is 77-0615715.

This is an all volunteer organization, your help, support, and cooperation is critical for this program to be a success. We require each parent/guardian to participate in helping to accomplish the various functions of this club i.e. coaching, timers, data entry, ribbons, tag pulling, officiating & judging events, help at practices, clothing sales, fundraising, meet setup and tear down, and assisting when we are visitors at other meets, transporting pop-up tents, first aid, I could go on and on! We want this program to continue to be the best it can for your children, and it is going to take all of us working together to make it so.

To help you understand more about the Santa Clarita Track Club’s program and philosophy, we will provide you with a Parent Handbook. It contains information regarding our club’s purpose, conduct during cross country meets and useful information concerning parent conduct and safety rules for training.

Hopefully, your questions will be answered by reading the handbook. Please contact any of the individuals listed below if you have any further questions or wish to review any of the points contained in this packet.
