registration & fees
Registration for FIYA Cross Country meets are handled via athletic.net. If your school has NOT participated in FIYA Cross Country or Track & Field in the past, you will 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 Cross Country Meets offered this season. 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.
The fee to participate is $20 per athlete per event. The deadline to register is 8 PM the Monday prior to each meet. Payment is due at the conclusion of the Cross Country season and can be made via athletic.net or by mailing a check.
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 our 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.
