Cross Country Coach
2022 Tippit Titan Cross Country Team Information
My name is Coach Angela Harris, and I would like to welcome you to our 2022 Cross Country season. Whether your athlete is a returning team member or new to cross country, I’m looking forward to coaching, training, and having a GREAT competitive season!
All participants must have a current physical exam dated after May 1, 2022, turned in, the online GISD required paperwork completed, and the catastrophic insurance fee before participating in Cross Country. Paperwork can be completed on the Tippit website under Athletic Physicals. An off-campus practice approval document is also required before participation in any off-campus practice.
Team practice will start on Wednesday, August 24th. Cross Country is a part of the Athletics program. However, participants DO NOT have to be in athletics to be on the team, but a cleared physical is required.
We BEGIN practice promptly every morning at 7:15 a.m. This means that your athlete should already be ready to practice at this time. We will meet inside by the girl's coach's office in the red chairs. I will also incorporate specified afternoon on-campus practice from 4:05-4:50 for athletes that have another sport in the morning, such as football, volleyball, or other UIL activities. This will also ensure students are acclimatized for running in hotter temperatures. Our Tippit male and female athletes will practice together under my supervision.
Uniforms: All participants must purchase an XC team shirt that must be worn to all XC meets. This shirt can be purchased through Centex on both the girls/boys athletics website. Parents, family, and friends may also purchase shirts to support our team. Athletes will also be issued an XC meet uniform that must be returned upon completion of the season.
Communication: PLEASE sign up on SportsYou using the code: V7NSNDV7
It is important that your child comes to practice prepared. A few things needed for practice are good running shoes, comfortable appropriate clothing, a labeled water bottle, something to eat after practice, and most important, an EXCITEMENT for running!
Thanks for supporting our athletes!
