Cross Country Certificate

The Cross Country Certificate was built to provide the hard-working athletes with a nice memory of their accomplishments each season.

​*Drop-down selection: *Customizable Awards/Honors: *Season Performace Table!

  • Let your athletes walk away each season with a nice memory of their accomplishments.   

  • Use the table as a tool to keep track of each season's performance for your team.   

  • The data table calculates the race pace for each meet to help with workouts.

I had noticed a lot of coaches looking for certificate ideas for their awards banquet.  I decided to make an easy tool that allows a coach to sum up the season's performances with an attractive certificate and make it easy to use.

The Application runs using Microsoft EXCEL

  • Keep a detailed record in an expansive table of each athlete's performance by meet.  

  • The Data Table allows the coach to maintain a lot of information if desired.  Things included are:  Race Times, Race Pace, Avg Time, Avg. Pace, Season Best, Points Scored, Total Points, Avg Points, and Awards or Honors achieved.

  • The Data Table is set up to automatically calculate the race pace based on the course distance.

  • The information displayed in the Certificate is all linked to the Athlete's name.

  • The font can be changed with a click of a button, but there are only a few select fonts that are similar in size and won't destroy the layout.

  • If certain pieces of information are not used, they can easily be blanked out so the printout is nice and clean for all athletes.

  • Eliminate typing errors or accidental misspellings on the certificate.

  • There is also a worksheet to a List of athletes by Sex and by Class if desired.

  • The coach can drop in their own clip-art if desired.

  • The terms used can be customized by the coach or arranged in a different order.
