Green Wave - WYSI Cross Country Club

Cross Country

Sport Overview

Westfield Green Wave (WYSI Cross Country) was established in 2012 as a running club for Westfield boys and girls in grades kindergarten through sixth grade. Green Wave cross country is an all inclusive sport, meaning we accept and encourage runners from every skill level to join. Our focus is providing a fun opportunity for athletes to learn the basics of the team sport of Cross Country while challenging themselves individually. Our culture is one of positivity and improvement by teaching them proper mechanics, self discipline, rigor, and a respect for the sport

Our standard practice schedule is Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6pm until 7:15pm on our home course at Monon Trail Elementary School. In October practices will be shortened and will end at 7pm due to earlier sunset. November practices will start around 5:00pm. Practices include a brief team meeting, stretching, running activity, strength and conditioning, and a game.

We will host a time trial, three club meets for Westfield athletes only, and the 2nd annual Westfield Fall Kick Off Classic. All of these will e held at Monon Trail Elementary. Entry fees for meets hosted by the Green Wave are included in the registration fee for the season.

Green Wave Cross Country is a member of the IYTA (Indiana Youth Track Association) Conference. Our club will compete at meets with conference mates Body in Training, Fishers Fire, Northside Saints, and many others. IYTA meets are optional and entry fees ($5) are not included in the registration. Please see the schedule for IYTA meet dates.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do we order a uniform? 
When you registered your child you included shorts/jersey size for their uniform. You may go to LogoShop (directions) during regular business hours for a fitting if you want to confirm sizing. 

Q. My child is involved in another activity and cannot make every practice, is that okay? 
Practices are Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Attendance is not mandatory for all practices but we do recommend attending as many as possible. As with any activity, improvement comes through practice. 

Q. Can my child be grouped with his/her friend?
All athletes practice at the same time and location. For car pools this will make it easy to schedule drop off and pick up even if kids are in different groups. Groupings at practices varies by activity. On Monday we have pace groups which are small groups of athletes with similar ability levels. Wednesday and Thursday are usually divided up by age group 8 & Under, 9/10, and 11 & Up. Age group is determined by your child's age on December 31 of the current year. 

Q. What distance to the kids run at their meets? 
8 and under -  2 Kilometers (1.24 miles).  
9 and older - 3 Kilometers (1.86 miles).

Q. Where does Green Wave practice and run Home meets?
Green Wave practices and runs at Monon Trail Elementary School.
