Welcome to the cross country team and Congratulations to all freshmen for being accepted into TJ. Over the summer we hold optional captain's practices. While these practices are not required, they are highly recommended. They are a great opportunity to get in shape for the season and get to know the people on the team. We will begin Captain's practices on Tuesday, July 3rd. You should bring appropriate running clothes, athletic shoes, water, a towel, and a jump rope/stretching strap.
All Captain's practices are from 6-7:30pm. The schedule is as follows:
Tuesday: Wakefield Park, 8100 Braddock Rd., Annandale, VA. We will meet next to the first softball field on the left.
Thursday: Burke Lake Park, 7315 Ox Road, Fairfax Station, VA. Follow signs for the train (left after entry gate, parking on right). We will meet in the parking area/median beside the train / mini golf / ice cream parlor area.
Saturday: Lake Fairfax Park, 1400 Lake Fairfax Dr., Reston, VA. Drive past the water mine and continue until the road ends. Take a left and continue until the road ends/makes a sharp turn into a small parking lot on your left. We will meet in the field near the pavilions.
