The Club Northwest Youth Cross Country Team is for athletes age 5-18 who love to run and are interested in learning more about the sport of cross country, as well as more experienced runners interested in Junior Olympic races post their school XC seasons. Practice times and days are projected to be Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4-5 pm but these is flexibility depending upon on availability of the athletes and their school schedules.  Practices start September 5 and go through the last race in which we have runners competing.  Please contact Deborah Fletcher directly at for more information. 


Club Northwest Membership: $30 for an individual youth team membership or $75 for a family membership. Youths already covered under a family membership do not need to pay any additional Club membership fees. Click HERE to join Club Northwest.

Youth Team Practice Fees: $150 for the entire cross country season. Partial season fees are to be determined; please direct inquiries to Deborah Fletcher.  Click HERE to sign up for practices. Each member of the team will receive a CNW racing singlet to wear at cross country meets. Athletes and their parents will be responsible for registration and entry fees for each meet entered.
