Coaching Cross Country

Cross Country is a demanding sport requiring great fitness, endurance and a driving desire to compete. It is also a team sport that is won or lost by individuals racing against others and against themselves. To help coaches meet the demands of the sport, the NFHS has partnered with USA Track and Field to develop Coaching Cross Country.

Here, you will learn how to develop a training plan, delve into the psychology and mental toughness of long distance runners, discover how to identify, treat and prevent common injuries and much more.
