Lynbrook XC, Mission Statement

Mission #1: To develop life long athletes who understand the importance of physical training in preparation for athletic competition, and who continue a healthy lifestyle after graduation.

Mission #2: Utilize the Life Lessons that are learned through the sport of Cross-Country from the coaches, parents and peers that demonstrate our Core Values of respect, responsibility, honesty, fairness and compassion not only within the Cross-Country Team Family but with everyone they encounter.

In order to benefit from physical training, the coaches believe that:
In order to be a productive member of the team, the coaches feel that:

Summer Program - Meet throughout the week for the opportunity to run with teammates and others, to catch up on what the 'XC Family' has been up to and further develop the bond among athletes and coaches. The athletes of today are the leaders of tommorrow and there must be mentors, role models and peers involved to continue the progression of these future leaders.


- Lynbrook hosts two meets a year. One at the beginning of the season and one at the end of the season. This allows athletes to see how much we improve during the course of the season.

- Monterey Bay Invite in Salinas every other year (when this is the CCS championship course) which is an all day affair. Gives Varsity a chance to run on the course, and gives others a chance to see the CCS course where they may run one day.

- Artichoke Invite in Half Moon Bay. Where stopping at the Pumpkin Patch on the way back home is as much fun as the afternoon races.

- Various other Center Meets throughout the season.


- Pasta Feeds at individual homes before selected meets. Time to further get to know the kids and the parents as well.
