Hi, most schools do have a cross country program. If you're involved in clubs and/or your high school team you can begin to look at schools you're interested in attending for other reasons (academics, location, cost, etc). Then check out their athletic program online to see if they have a team.

There are different divisions in college athletics. Division I, II and III. Division I schools can offer scholarships for those athletes/runners who hit a certain time. Emailing/chatting with the coach will give you a good idea of whether your times would qualify you for a scholarship or as a "walk on" which allows you to participate on the team without getting a scholarship. Division II schools can also offer scholarships of some sort. Division III doesn't offer scholarship. I ran at a Division III school and loved it! Myself and my teammates were very passionate about running and it made my college career so memorable.

Start by narrowing down where you would like to go to school and then work through their coach to determine how to join the team. That will help you decide where to head to launch your college career.

Good luck!

Stephanie recommends the following next steps:

Determine a few schools you're interested in.
Go to their athletic site
Contact the coach to determine times required to join/make the team
Inquire about scholarship opportunities for Division I and II schools.
