2022 Summer Conditioning

The summer conditioning program is a great way to be introduced to cross country as well as condition for other sports.

The program begins at the end of June and runs through the middle of August. Sessions will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:30 pm at Clarkston High School. See the schedule for specific dates. Practices involve running and other games and activities. Two of the sessions will involve bike rides. Practices are held on the CHS campus as well as nearby locations. Example: Sidewalk to the library and back. Use the small parking lot behind the high school next to the stadium. Look for us to gather in the field across from the parking lot. Come dressed ready to workout and bring a water bottle. Athletes are not required to attend every session. This program is for students entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.

For information on how to sign up, see the Community Education webpage or register online through Independence Township Parks and Recreation. Choose the category CCE Youth Exercise and Fitness. 


Summer reminders/announcements and cancellation notice
Sign up for text reminders regarding special practice sessions and possible severe weather cancellations at It is rare that we need to cancel a session but in case we do need to, sign up using the remind link to be notified when we do.


Alternate Location (long bike ride only)
For the long bike ride we will meet at Independence Elementary. Same meeting time of 6:30 but pick up is at 8:00.  


Parent Volunteers needed 
For both of the bike rides, we would greatly appreciate your help.

Short Bike Ride: One or two parents to ride with us. Bonus, cool treat at the end. 

Long Bike Ride: Four-ish parent volunteers to ride with us and another to follow us in a van/truck/suv (big enough to carry a bike and passenger in case a bike breaks down).
