OVERVIEW

SPORT OVERVIEW

Westfield Green Wave (WYSI Cross Country) was established in 2012 as a running club for Westfield boys and girls in grades kindergarten through sixth grade. Green Wave cross country is an all inclusive sport, meaning we accept and encourage runners from every skill level to join. Our focus is providing a fun opportunity for athletes to learn the basics of the team sport of Cross Country while challenging themselves individually. Our culture is one of positivity and improvement by teaching them proper mechanics, self discipline, rigor, and a respect for the sport. Cross Country is a co-ed sport - boys and girls are eligible to participate.  

Our standard practice schedule is Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6pm until 7:15pm on our home course at Monon Trail Elementary School. We may have different practice locations, this is still in the works. Practices include a brief team meeting, stretching, running activity, strength and conditioning, and a PR ribbon handout.

We will host a time trial, one or two club meets for Westfield athletes only, and a couple meets with other IYTA teams. All of these will be held at Monon Trail Elementary. Entry fees for all regular season Saturday meets are included with registration. The 2024 regular season will end with the IYTA Championship. There will be one or two after regular season meets that your athlete can opt to participate in if they choose to. A USATF membership will be required for those meets. 

Green Wave Cross Country is a member of the IYTA (Indiana Youth Track Association) Conference. Our club will compete at meets with conference mates Body in Training, Fishers Fire, Athlead Indy and many others.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do we order a uniform? 
When you registered your child you included a jersey size for their uniform. We will not be doing uniform shorts this year. Your athlete will get a Greenwave t-shirt along with their team jersey. Sizing will be the same as WYSI track & field. We will order one size larger for the t-shirt than requested jersey size as the t-shirts will run small. You may go to LogoShop (directions) during regular business hours for a fitting if you want to confirm sizing. 

Q. My child is involved in another activity and cannot make every practice, is that okay? 
Practices are Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Attendance is not mandatory for all practices but we do recommend attending as many as possible. As with any activity, improvement comes through practice. 

Q. Can my child be grouped with his/her friend?
All athletes practice at the same time and location. For car pools this will make it easy to schedule drop off and pick up even if kids are in different groups. Groupings at practices varies by activity. On Monday we have pace groups which are small groups of athletes with similar ability levels. Wednesday and Thursday are usually divided up by age group 8 & Under, 9/10, and 11 & Up. Age group is determined by your child's age on December 31 of the current year. 

Q. What distance to the athletes run at their meets? 
8 and under -  2 Kilometers (1.24 miles)
9 through 12 - 3 Kilometers (1.86 miles)
13 and 14 - 4 Kilometers (2.4 miles)

Q. Where does Green Wave practice and run Home meets?
Green Wave practices and runs at Monon Trail Elementary School.
