FIYA is open to ALL elementary and middle schools for participation. NO High School students are allowed to compete in FIYA. We divide the competition for both our Virtual AND In-Person meets based on grade levels as follows…

 

Division 1 = 8th Grade & Below and runs a 2 mile course;

Division 2 = 6th Grade & Below and runs a 1.5 mile course;

Division 3 = 4th Grade & Below and runs a 1 mile course.


NOTE: A student-athlete can compete as part of the school team or individually if there are not enough student athletes at your school interested in competing. Students are also allowed to run in older divisions, but are prohibited from running in lower divisions than their age group.

2022 In-Person Meets Location

Icon

Exact meet locations for the 2022 XC season will be announced closer to season. 

Generally, FIYA organizes its competitions geographically. That is, we try to accommodate for all of our school participants by hosting our meets in various locations across LA county so that more teams can compete and to minimize travel. In past FIYA XC seasons, our in-person meets have been held at the following locations:

EDWARD VINCENT JR. PARK

Edward Vincent Hill XC

CHEVIOT HILLS REC CENTER

CREATING ATHLETIC.NET ACCOUNT & REGISTRATION

Icon

Registration for both in-person and virtual cross country meets are handled via athletic.net. If your school has NOT participated in FIYA Cross Country or Track & Field in the last two years, you will likely need to first create a free team account at athletic.net.  Once you create your account, you can then register for any of the FIYA (virtual or in-person) Cross Country Meets. This is also the same procedure for FIYA Track & Field. Please click the button below for instructions on creating a free team account and registering your student-athletes for FIYA meets. Be sure to create your team's account at least one week before the registration deadline to ensure your account is ready on time.
