FIYA VIRTUAL XC IS NOW LIVE and our competition period has extended through Monday, November 30th for all (10) FIYA Virtual Cross Country meets for the Fall 2020 Season.  Continue reading for more details.

Competition period and all entries close on Monday November 30th.

Due to restrictions with COVID-19, FIYA's carefully measured and designed (10) XC courses at (10) different parks and recreation areas throughout Los Angeles county. Our virtual program is structured so that our students can physically compete in a sport at this time, while also practicing safe social distancing. FIYA Virtual XC is a great opportunity to get your students and school communities involved in after-school activities, physically compete with other students, and all while visiting some of Los Angeles's greatest outdoor rec areas!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

To register and compete in any of our virtual meets, schools must FIRST create a free team account on athletic.net and each runner must also have their own account connected to the team's profile. Athletes will physically run the courses that we have designed for our various locations before the competition deadline. Using the Athletic App and their account, runners record their runs using GPS and submit race results to the FIYA meet of which they're registered for on our athletic.net page.
