PE 270 - Intercollegiate Cross Country (Women)

Units: 1
Intercollegiate cross country running is a sport which takes place outside on terrains of different lay-outs and complexities in which teams and individuals attempt to complete a course faster than one another. Cross country has both men and women categories. The NAIA courses are 5 kilometers for the women and 8 kilometers for the men. Practices are daily with meets scheduled on the weekends. All athletes must pass a complete physical and must be certified by the Play NAIA player eligibility center. Athletes must be registered as full time students at the California State University Maritime Academy and maintain a 2.0 GPA. Practices include strength training, plyometrics, core conditioning, interval training and long distance running. Practices will be held on Bodnar Field track and at select off campus locations. All intercollegiate athletes are expected to participate in all practices and competitions. Athletes are also required to sign a contract acknowledging all of the specifics including time commitment and school representation. The Coach/Instructor will use multi-media aids, lecture and lab to instruct the Student Athlete. Athletes are expected to dress for running with the appropriate shoes to be discussed by the Coach.
