Welcome to Revolution Express Track Club!

Scholar-Athlete Award 

Beginning this season we will honor all RETC athletes in either of our spring or summer 2015 teams that have earned a 4.0 during their spring semester.  Please submit a copy of your report card or a letter from your teacher confirming your GPA if a report card isn't available.  Submit to Coach Maura or Team Mom Kristi no later than Thursday, June 4 at practice.  If your child doesn't earn letter grades yet, then a letter from the teacher confirming what they have earned would equal an A is also acceptable.

Recognition of these Scholar-Athletes will be held at our end-of-season party. 


Practice location change 

Each year RETC is required to relocate practice to accommodate the Rocklin High School graduation ceremony.  Over the years we've found that Buljan Middle School works well for a substitute practice location. 

  • Location: Buljan Middle School (100 Hallissy Dr., Roseville, 95678)
  • Practice relocated on these days only:  June 1, 2, 3, 4
  • Time:  6-7:30 pm 
The closest bathrooms are across the park so please use the facilities before coming to practice or have a parent handy to walk you over.  None of the youth athletes are allowed to go to the park bathrooms by themselves.  Also, make sure you bring water as there are no water fountains nearby. 

May practice schedule 

  • Monday (6-7:30 pm)
  • Tuesday (6-7:30 pm) ... 7-8 year olds optional to attend
  • Thursday (6-7:30 pm) ... no more 5:30-6 pm for javelin or HJ
In June we'll add Wednesday to the practice regime as the team will be preparing for the Junior Olympics.  At that time the 7-8 year olds still only need to attend two practices each week. 

PAC (Pacific Association Championship) May 30-31 

This is our first championship meet of the summer. It officially ends the spring season for some of our athletes. If your child plans to continue competing through the summer please review the next article on this home page for pricing information.
  • Location:  Whitney High School, Rocklin
  • Time:
    • 7:30 am:  RETC team warm-up
    • 8:30 am:  Field events begin
    • 9:00 am:  Running events begin (events can start up to 30-minutes prior to posted start time) 

Because this is a championship meet we run our team dynamics differently. For this meet only, athletes do not all show up for first team warm-up together unless they are competing within the first 3-hours of the meet. Review the meet schedule and time your arrival so that you show up at least 2-hours before your child will compete. Keep in mind that parking is crazy and your child will need adequate time to warm-up and check into the clerking area if they are in a running event. 

  • Link to meet schedule: http://www.pausatf.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/ytf2015PAChamps.pdf 
As a club we will sit just to the far side of the home side press box as you walk in from the parking lot. This will be the first part of the stadium to receive shade each afternoon. Two years ago at this meet it got to 109 degrees the first day of the meet so we want to secure as much shade as possible!     

We are blessed to have this meet in our backyard.  That blessing comes with a few strings!  We need to help in three key areas because we are the host club.  Please can you sign-up for 1 or more of these volunteer roles? 

ACTION:  We need wagons to pull around the track at lunch time to deliver the lunches.  4-6 wagons would be perfect.  Please if you have one we can borrow ... bring to the infield on Saturday and Sunday at 10 am.  We'll be staging lunch preparation next to the water table which will be located by the finish line timing area.  Thanks!

Season Party / Pictures

Please have your athlete come in their team uniform for the team picture, individual shot and buddy shots, then they can change into something to wear during the party.  There is a sand volleyball pit so if anyone can bring a volleyball that would be great!   If it isn't cold, the kids can also bring their squirt guns ... parents & coaches are off limits though!
