Welcome to Clarkston Cross Country

CJHS & SMS Registration


Are you interested in joining the Clarkston Junior High 8th grade cross country team or the Sashabaw Middle School 6th and 7th grade team? See below for the fall announcement for more information about the team. The following needs to be completed to register for the fall cross country season:

  1. Complete the CCS Grade 6-8 Athlete Registration
  2. Pay the CCS Pay to Participate Athletic Fee $200
  3. Download and complete a physical with your doctor then turn in a copy to your coach

All of the above need to be completed before you attend your first practice. If you will miss the first day or 2 of practices, send us an email so we know to see you soon.

Registration for fall sports opens near the beginning of August. However, you will want to print off and schedule your physical with your family doctor much sooner. Pine Knob Urgent Care does do walk in sports physicals. 


Are you interested in joining us for summer conditioning? The summer conditioning program is a great way to be introduced to cross country as well as condition for other sports. Summer conditioning is open to any student entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. See below for the summer announcement for more information about what we do.

To register for summer conditioning, register online through Independence Township Parks and Recreation. Choose the category Clarkston Community Education.  Then choose Summer, then Youth Fitness and then look for Summer Cross Country.

CJHS & SMS Parent Sign Ups

It takes a lot of work to coordinate over 100 athletes. We are unable to host our own home meets and host the elementary race without your help. The away meets also go much smoother with your help. See the descriptions in the sign up genius. Thank you!


Weekly Newsletter 
For fall cross country, a weekly newsletter is emailed to you each week using the email address submitted when registering. You can also access the newsletters here. For summer conditioning, access the information for the whole summer.

Text Message Sign Up
We use the Remind service to send out last minute announcements. Examples may include, practice is cancelled, the meet host makes a change to the schedule of events, etc.

Team Directory (Fall Cross Only)
Our lives can become hectic and sometimes it helps to coordinate rides with other teammates. Or maybe a runner wants to do a weekend run. Its always fun to workout with others. You can sign up to add your name to the optional team directory.
