Northshore School District offers two sports seasons for elementary students in grades 3 through 5. Cross Country is held in the fall and Track and Field is held in the spring. Contact your school's coach for team information.

Cross Country: Course distance is roughly one half mile. This activity gets kids moving, allows them to show their sportsmanship and be a part of a team. Practices will begin in early September and meets start the end of September and conclude before October 31.
