WELCOME!

WELCOME TO CGXC ATHLETES AND FAMILIES!
This page is designed to help get athletes and families started with the 2017 season.   I have each section bolded below.
ROSTER INFORMATION
– RETURNING RUNNERS:  
Please let Coach Dobson know if you have any changes to Address, Phone Numbers, Email, or Advisor.   In addition, if you have not been receiving any email communication, please contact Coach Dobson so I can correct your email address in the Team Roster.
– FIRST YEAR RUNNERS:   Please click HERE to find the Team Information sheet for 2017.   Please complete and either mail to Coach Dobson or the preferred method of emailing the information from the sheet to dobsonda@sbcglobal.net.
TEAM WEBSITE
The team’s website is www.centervillegirlsxc.com and the password is (contact Coach Dobson) for some of the pages.   This website has most of the information that you need to know so please check here first but if you are missing something, please let me know.   Athletes and parents should both check under Team Information and check out the Universal Information, New Athlete Information, Athlete Information, and Parent Information.
WARM-UPS, TEAM BAGS, & TEAM UNIFORM    
Each athlete is provided with a TEAM BAG to use during the season and it will be collected at the end of the season.   Each athlete will also be provided a TEAM JERSEY that too will be collected at the end of the season.   Uniform SHORTS are purchased by each athlete and are included on the TEAM FEE (see below).   It is NOT expected that each athlete purchase a new pair of shorts each season.   These shorts are purchased by the athlete and are NOT collected at the end of the season.
The Nike warm-ups we have been using for the past two seasons will once again be used for the 2017 season as well.   Contrary to comments made at the spring meeting, I expect that we can use these warm-ups for the 2017 and 2018 season as I have been able to locate an additional supplier despite Nike discontinuing them at the end of 2016.   Each family can either choose to RENT a warm-up for $15 and return them at the end of the season or PURCHASE the warm-up for $85.   Example of sizes can be used for fitting purposes by either speaking to one of the captain or coaches.
TEAM FEES
There are certain expenses as a part of being a team member of CGXC and they are outlined HERE.   These fees are not part of the pay to participate fee that is collected by Centerville City Schools.   These fees can be paid by mailing the form and payment to Coach Dobson before August 1st or ASAP.   If your team fee is a hardship, please talk with Coach Dobson for alternative plans.  

REMIND MESSAGES AND TWITTER
Athletes AND parents are encouraged to sign up for these messages.   Please text to 81010 the message @cgxc  and get some of the most important messages to your phone or device.   Please follow us on Twitter @CHSGirlsXC

CHS ATHLETIC BOOSTERS 
I am STRONGLY encouraging families to support our CHS Athletic Boosters by joining.   You can do so HERE.   I would like to get 100% of our families as a part of our CHS Athletic Boosters so thank you in advance for joining.
Please also consider purchasing an ad in the Fall Program Book yourself or from your business.   Information is HERE.
KROGER REWARDS
If your family shops at Kroger please consider linking your Kroger Plus card with CGXC and we will receive a percentage of your purchases.  It costs you nothing but helps us tremendously.   Please click HERE!
ELEMENTARY and MS XC CAMP
Our second largest profit comes from this camp and the team would certainly benefit on many levels if our families can help recruit family, friends, and neighbors to be a part of the camp.   Please print off a couple of registrations and ask some of them to participate and let’s help grow our sport in our community.
AREA ROAD RACES COMING UP
Run 4 Recovery 5K – attached
Dayton Dragons 5K – this one could be fun to do and then enjoy the Dragon’s Game tickets as a team activity later this summer!

VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP
The team hosts two cross country meets this season.   It takes over 175 volunteers to make these events successful which means EVERY family is expected sign up for a minimum of 1 spot.   Spots are on a “first come” basis so if there is a spot you want to work, sign up early.
Parents who signed up at the May Athlete/Parent Meetings PLEASE DO NOT sign up for your spot again.   Only use the website to sign up for additional spots.
To sign up please follow the instructions below or the detailed instructions attached.
Go to the website for the event:
