First day of Practice
The first day for cross country practices is August 15, 2016. All participants must have a completed physical before they can participate in practice. In addition on an annual basis and before the first practice of the season, all coaches, student participants and school administrators responsible for event coverage are required to complete a concussion education program. Coaches and sponsors of fall sports and activities must complete an in-service on prevention of heat illness and proper hydration of participants.

Cross Country Runners Required to have NINE days of practice
KSHSAA Handbook Rule 34 states a cross country runner must participate in nine days of practice with the team prior to participating in a meet. The concern about heat acclimatization and hydration is the reason for the required number of practices for each individual. Students who are dual participation athletes must work with coaches to ensure they attend 9 practices in both sports. It is permissible for a coach to provide a workout for a student to complete prior to or after the other team practice. Coaches are responsible for documenting these practices.

Cross Country Teams Required to have FOURTEEN days of practice
KSHSAA Handbook Rule 34 also states “no member school shall participate in a meet until it has had (14) days of training. This rule applies grades 7-12. This means if the school has a meet scheduled for Thursday, September 1, 2016 the team will need to have a practice on a Saturday or Sunday in order to have fourteen days of practice before the meet.
