Welcome to the CYA's first Cross Country Club!

Thanks for stopping by! Here's a little about myself.

My name is Andrew Minear and I am very excited to be offering this program to Carlisle's youth. I graduated from Carlisle in 2004. After high school I attended Grand View University where I ran cross country and track. There I met my wife Hilliary, who also ran. We have three boys, Trey, Beck and Kane. We have recently moved back to Carlisle. Previously, I spent eight years coaching and working with the Johnston cross country program. 

If you have a young runner or kiddo (going into 1st-6th grades) with what may seem like endless-energy, give the XC club a try. I will provide structure and learning for this great life-long sport. We will have fun and athletes will learn about running form and mechanics, running and good nutrition, hydration, racing and strategy all while being a part of a team and learning to push themselves.
