2016-17 Cross Country Tryouts

2016-17 Cross Country Tryouts

All Dal students are welcome to tryout for a Tigers varsity team. It is recommended you complete a Prospective Recruit form prior to tryouts.

Varsity rosters (12 men and 12 women) will be named on September 21st following the first two races. Being invited to team practice from the open tryout does not guarantee selection to the final varsity roster. Earning a varsity spot typically requires a time around 18:45 for a women's 5km and 34 minutes for the men's 10km.

Date Time Location Details
Tuesday, September 6
5:30pm Dalplex Lobby to Point Pleasant Park
Open Tryout - be prepared to run

Coaches and team captains will be there to ensure that nobody gets lost. Women will run 4km and men will run 7km. Prospective student-athletes can forego the open tryout and just attend the first official practice (Thursday, September 10th) if they can show results proving that they have run one of the following times in a race (track, roads, or XC is fine).:

Women:

5km - 20:00 minutes
10km - 42:00 minutes

Men:

5km - 17:00 minutes
10km - 36:00 minutes

Subsequent practice will be announced during the first tryout
