At Western Peaks, we strive to offer multiple, varied opportunities for our young students in athletics.
We provide positive feedback that will guide our students toward realizing their full potential. Win or lose, our students should learn lessons of a lasting and positive nature. As well, we believe it is our purpose to prepare the elementary school students of Western Peaks for participation in middle school athletics through teaching them the core fundamental skills and attitudes needed for future participation in athletics at the middle school level.
Western Peaks participates in Dysart’s Cross Country athletic season. Students in 3rd and 4th grades are eligible to participate on the Cross Country team. Team members will attend practices 3-4 days per week before school to train and build their endurance in running distances. Team members will also participate in district Cross Country meets, which occur on Saturdays. The Cross Country season is held during October - November of the school year.
