Welcome to Revolution Express Track Club!

First RETC 2016 spring practice

It's time!  The season begins on Monday, February 6 from 6-7:30 pm at Rocklin HS.  When you come to practice bring the following:

  • Completed RETC application (downloadable from the "Join RETC" link on left navigation bar
  • Copy of birth certificate (we have to turn this in to USATF)
  • Money (cash, check, debit/credit card) to cover registration fees
Registration is from 5-6 pm at RHS track stadium gate.
 
At our first practice your youth athlete will be fitted & receive their team uniform, team sweat suit and Palo.  Palos will need to be personallized to ensure your youth athlete will remember which one belongs to them.  Duck tape will be your friend!!!!
 
During practice parents can use the outside 2 lanes of the track for their own workouts.  All we ask is that you walk/run clockwise so you can see if athletes are coming down your lane and you can step off the track.  Please stay off the infield.  Our throwing team will be training in the discus and javelin and we don't want any accidents.
 
Please don't be late to pick up your youth athlete.  Our coach's have a life outside of RETC and need to get home when practice ends.

  • Date:  Thursday, February 18
  • Time:  6:10-7:30 pm

  • April 30 @ Rocklin HS
    • This is a full blown track meet for all USATF youth track clubs, unattached athletes and local schools.  To learn more about this meet check out the "2016 April 30 Home Meet" link in the left navigation bar.  We are excited to bring back our returning timer Lynn Mentzer from Reno & many of our partner clubs that assist us with the various volunteer roles required to put on a meet of this magnitude 

2016 Spring / Summer Season

First practice:  Monday, February 8 (6-7:30 pm) ... registration begins at 5 pm 

USATF Pacific Association youth track and field competitions are open for any youth athlete turning 5-18 years old in 2016.
