Welcome to Sutter Cross Country. The Sutter Middle School
XC program has a rich legacy of success and fostering a passion
for running, as well as providing a positive environment for our
student athletes to train, compete, and develop lifelong
friendships with their peers. Committing ourselves as
teammates and student-athletes is paramount. Nothing comes
before that, including winning.
Our positive team climate should serve to represent and permeate
throughout the greater Sutter community, including our student
body, staff, alumni, local businesses, and nearby
community. All athletes on the Cross Country roster are
well aware of this honor and responsibility. Team captains
help to anchor the value of our influence every year.
Team Captains for the 2022 season are:
“The real purpose of running isn’t to win the race,
it’s to test the limits of the human heart.” Bill
A SCUSD sports participation packet must be turned in prior

GEAR: Athletes should wear comfortable
running shorts, t-shirt, running shoes, and bring a water bottle.
COST: Any fees associated with the season
will be minimal. Funds are used to pay for t-shirts and
miscellaneous items that pop up. Fees will be announced
once practice begins on August 17.
FLEET FEET NIGHT: Our annual Fleet Feet
night will be held in the end of August. You DO
NOT WANT TO MISS THIS!!! After the close of normal
business hours, Fleet Feet reserves a night solely for the
purpose of serving the needs of our Sutter XC student
athletes. Fleet Feet provides two unique features to find
the shoe that is most appropriately built for the shape and
function unique to each runner’s foot. In other words, the
runner is the patient, and Fleet Feet is the foot doctor.
Shoes are suggested for function, not style. This is not a
required event, and athletes are not mandated to purchase their
running shoes at Fleet Feet. All runners do receive a 10%
discount during their team’s reserved night.
PRACTICE LOCATIONS: Practice sessions are
held at Sutter and McKinley Park, conveniently located one block
adjacent to campus.
TRAINING: Training is the core of our
sport. Running is not a sport one can participate and
compete in without proper training. TIME and CONSISTENCY
are the bookends of a healthy, successful runner. Too much,
too fast, too soon NEVER works and injuries become
inevitable. Here is a list a proper training fundamentals
and key terms our runners will be exposed to throughout their
careers here at Sutter and in a quality high school program
Every Run Has a Purpose
TRANSPORTATION: Parents are responsible for
arranging rides to/from practice and events. It is extremely
