Cross Country @ WUHS

 

Visit the team website

The cross country program at Woodstock Union High School & Middle School offers opportunities for runners of varied abilities. We welcome the very experienced racer as well as the novice runner. Each individual has something to contribute to the team, and each individual has something to learn from their teammates! Our goal is to meet each individual “where she/he is” in their training and help them improve. 

 Our novice program provides runners with little experience or training and the opportunity to learn the fundamentals and increase training at a very gradual pace. The team moves from group to group throughout the season, as appropriate. Everyone has the opportunity to race when ready. We welcome everyone who enjoys running and who have a genuine desire to improve in training and in competition.

 Our program emphasizes the philosophy that training for racing includes much more than running. Overall health is paramount. Balanced nutrition, good sleep habits,positive thinking, cross training, and strength training all contribute to the overall health of high school runners and are key components to the successful preparation for cross country racing! 

The town of Woodstock provides us with superb places to run. We are fortunate to have numerous trails with the variety of terrain (including great hills!) to prepare us for the most challenging courses. We train seriously, and we have a lot of fun. Throughout the season, as each individual works toward their goals, the team comes together to work toward a common goal, providing a network of friendship and support for all team members.

WOODSTOCK UNION HIGH SCHOOL CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT PROTOCOL

Additional information on concussions and other head injuries are available at www.vpaonline.org.

A concussion is an injury to the brain caused by a blow to the head or even another part of the body.  It may occur with or without loss of consciousness.   Some of the most common symptoms include headache, confusion, memory loss, nausea, dizziness, trouble concentrating, loss of balance or even a seizure and may last days or even weeks.  The State of Vermont requires that all schools grades K-12 have a concussion management plan.

Education:  The State requires that students, parents/guardians, and coaches learn about concussions and their management.  Students and parents /guardians must sign a form indicating that they have received this training and will comply with the management plan.  Coaches must provide proof of concussion training every year to the athletic department.  The student/parent form is attached.

 

Impact Testing:  Concussion often results in measurable changes in brain function.  Although not required by the State, best practice recommends baseline brain function testing (Impact Testing) for MS students playing boys Lacrosse and Football.  All 9th and 11th graders playing sports also have this testing, as well as those who have not been tested before.  Students may be required to retest after a concussion prior to returning to play.

 

Removal:  When a student is injured in play and a concussion is suspected he/she is immediately removed from any training session or competition until examined by a Health Care professional.  This may initially be done by the athletic trainer or, in his/her absence, the coach.  The student may not return to play until evaluated by the trainer or a health care provider trained in concussions.  A parent or guardian will be notified as soon as possible, and within 24 hours.

  • If it is determined that an athlete did not sustain a concussion the health care provider must provide a written statement indicating the student was examined and not found to have a concussion.
  • If an athlete did sustain a concussion he/she must follow the concussion management protocol.

The student or parent will be given the Medical Provider Referral Form, Return to Learn and Return to Play protocols.

 

Return to Learn:  The initial treatment for concussion is complete cognitive as well as physical rest.    This usually involves being home for a few days without watching TV, using your phone or computer – or even reading or doing homework.  The School Nurse will inform the teachers of the concussion, and accommodations that may be needed.

 

Return to Play:  An athlete must be symptom free for 24 hours to begin the graduated return to play.  There must be 24 hours as well between steps because symptoms may develop several hours after completing a step.  If symptoms arise the athlete will be forced to take a step back in the protocol.  Fi symptoms persist the student will be referred to a medical provider.  The post-concussion impact test will be administered.  The final determination on return to play after medical clearance will be made by the Athletic Trainer.
