All. There is excitement growing about the upcoming National Meet in Madison on December 14th of this year. We have been getting questions on how to qualify for the national meet. The answer is this. You must be a USATF member..you can sign up here http://www.usatf.org/ And you must qualify out of your regional\state association meet. The way to find out the information for your qualifying meet, is to enter your state name in the search box on the USATF site. It will then come back with information related to your state, and one of the results should be your regional qualifying meet\your state USATF page. You can then contact them to find the date and location of the qualifying meet for your state.
The sign-up for our Fall Cross Country Program is HERE In the next couple of weeks we will make a store available for Badger Track Club gear to purchase before the season starts. Also we have a Cross Country FAQ that is on the menu of the site and can be found here http://badgertrackclub.com/cross-country-faq/ Please review for any questions you might have.
If your child is participating in a fall Middle School Cross Country program this will be an easy transition. If they are not participating in any program and the start of this program will be the start of their Cross Country season, please let us know. We will work with you to get them running between now and then so they can hit the ground running:-)
Also please don’t forget the September 7th CC meet at Verona High School at 11:40am. It’s a great opportunity to get things rolling. Also please feel free to share this email with whomever you think has a child that would fit into our program. Having the national meet here in Madison is a once in a lifetime opportunity to run a National Meet in your own backyard!
We are looking forward to having a big program this fall in hopes that we can compete for not only individual All-American status and a National Individual Title at the National CC Meet here in Madison on December 14th, but put together some teams for a chance at a Team Championship
