Middle School Cross Country
Building for the Future
Middle School is a time to have fun and a time to grow. The goal of middle school cross country at Providence is to introduce 6th-8th grade students to a fun and challenging sport. Cross country is fun because we work hard and play together as a team. It is challenging because we run and strive to do our best. Many might say that middle school sports are not important, but they are. They are important because middle school students matter. Cross country prepares students through success, failure, and discipline. The Providence cross country program looks to build students up in all aspects of life. It looks to grow young athletes into faithful men and women of God. It looks to prepare students for high school and life.
We want to build middle school athletes' character and if that happens to build the cross country program in the process, all the better. Many middle school runners go on to run in high school and many find great success. We want to honor the Lord, seek Him, mature together, and have lots of fun on the run.
