FRESHMAN MEETING

All 2017/18 incoming freshmen runners and parents of incoming freshmen should be at the 2017 Cross Country Incoming Freshmen Meeting will be announced soon. Head Coach, Carter Yarborough, has scheduled this meeting to get to know next year's new athletes and to explain to parents and athletes what to expect from the program. Coach will also invite a few current and even "graduated" athletes to share their perspective. So if you are an incoming freshman, or a parent of an incoming freshman, and want to know what this is all about then you should not miss this meeting. You can also reach Coach Carter Yarborough at cyarborough@sycuan.com.

High School is a big step for all of our kids. What better way to get started than to get involved with a group, to join a close, cohesive group of students from all grades who know how to be successful at Valhalla? Cross Country (XC) is a Fall Sport where both boys and girls learn to compete, are pushed to be all that they can be, and find out how to do well in high school and everything that they do. Training starts soon after so don't miss the meeting.

Message from Coach Carter Yarborough

Being a Champion Competitor

You are champions already, mentally and physically, with your running preparation. The secret to your running success and being a competitor is knowing that you have won a race before you start.

Nothing can compensate for the lack of will to perform when the situation demands that desire! Only you can provide the will. No one clue can help at the moment of truth. The penalty for the lack of will is usually defeat. (Either mental or physical.) “Quitting” is anytime the athlete gives up hope of doing his/her best. The difference between a winner and a loser is often the effort to try. The winner tries and therefore regardless of the result is a winner. There is no failure like ceasing to try.

Proper training is an extremely important part of being a winner. It does not guarantee success but it certainly increases the possibilities. You must work at developing your inner motivation. So remember, being a champion requires simply doing the basics of training (eating right, sleeping sufficiently, drinking correct fluids and exercising your brain and body for the races) and reaching further within yourself and being all that you can be each race.
