Cross Country

The Middle School cross country program requires high levels of commitment and time but the rewards can be great. Middle School cross country exists for those passionate about the sport and players are asked to work hard and devote a significant amount of time toward reaching their own as well as the team's goals. The benefits to the players can potentially last a lifetime. Many of the values, principals, and interpersonal skills learned on the team will translate well into any situation a child or adult might encounter.

Any enthusiastic athlete is welcome to join the Cross Country Team. It is an opportunity for students to increase their fitness and to just enjoy running as part of a team, and represent HKIS.

The MS Cross Country Season will comprise the ISSFHK mini meets plus Championships in Pui o, Lantau. Cross Country athletes will also be able to join the long distance Track and Field events as the seasons and teams will combine.

There is a pre-season Run Club on offer too for those who want to start early and students from this will be chosen to compete in the HKSSF XC Championships in November.

  • Squad size: Any enthusiastic athletes welcome. Championship meet permits 6-10 athletes per division.
  • Season: Mid November - February
  • Training Days - Monday but athletes can also train on Thursdays with Track and Field to try other disciplines.
  • Competition - ISSFHK mini meets plus Championships. Those wanting to compete in the HKSSF Championship in November should join the Run Club in season 1
