Our cross country team, the Chapel Hill Cheetahs, had a fantastic inaugural 2019 cross country season.  We are excited to resume the team this summer, 2021.

The Chapel Hill Cheetahs is open to all boys and girls, ages 10 and up, who are part of a registered homeschool.  Runners are not required to be Deerstream students.   Students ages 10-middle school compete in a 2 mile race, while high school students compete in a 5K (3.1 miles).

Our team welcomes runners of all abilities.  The goal of cross country is to challenge yourself to improve and to encourage your teammates!

Summer practices will begin on July 11.  They will be held on Monday and Wednesday mornings at 8am at Cedar Falls Park in Chapel Hill.

Beginning on September 13 , practices will move to Monday and Wednesday at 1pm on the Campus of Chapel Hill Bible Church.

We currently have meets scheduled for Aug. 19, 27 and Sept. 2, 7. We are working on one for Sept. 13 and am hoping  to add two more meets in late September. The State Meet should be Oct. 8.
  • The cost to participate for the season is $200.
  • Runners will need a medical form signed by a doctor to participate.
