Monday, May 21
Welcome to Revolution Express Track Club!

No one else needs to come early.  This is specialized practice for these athletes only.


No Practice - Monday, Memorial Day (May 28)

Enjoy your full 3-day weekend with your family!  Only practice this week will be on Thursday.


Do you Multie?

What is a Multie?  In the world of youth track and field, athletes can qualify for the Junior Olympics in multies (combined) events (i.e., triathlon, pentathlon, heptathlon, decathlon).  The events by age group are: 

  • 9 & 10 year olds
    • Girls:  HJ, SP, 200M
    • Boys:  HJ, SP, 400M
  • 11-14 year olds
    • Girls:  80H or 100H, LJ, SP, HJ, 800M
    • Boys:  80H or 100H, LJ, SP, HJ, 1500M
  • 15-18 year olds 
    • Girls:  100H, HJ, SP, 200M, LJ, JT, 800M
    • Boys:  110M, LJ, SP, HJ, 400M, 110H, DT, PV, JT, 1500M
To be a Multies athlete requires more discipline and extra practices to cover all the events you need to train in.  These athletes have expressed interest:
  • Girls:  Keira, Abby, Abigail
  • Boys:  Ryan
Please let Coach Kent know at practice if you want to target this event to qualify for the AAU or USATF Junior Olympics this summer.
  • AAU Qualifier:
    • Meet Flier:   http://image.aausports.org/dnn/athletics/2018/18AT-Region22-MeetInformation.pdf
    • Date:  June 13 & 14 (Wednesday & Thursday)
    • Location:  Oakdale HS
  • USATF Qualifer:
    • Meet Flier:  hasn't been created yet
    • Date:  July 5-6 (Thursday & Friday)
    • Location:  Fresno Pacific College 

When will RETC add a third practice day to the week?

In past years, RETC added a third practice day in May.  Due to facility rental price increases last year ... RETC needs to wait until June to incur the additional facility rental costs of a third practice day.  Starting the first week of June, RETC will also begin practing on Tuesdays.  This is an optional practice day for 8U (not required). 


RETC Practices at Buljan MS (June 4-7)

Each year, during the week of Rocklin HS graduation, RETC moves our practice to Buljan MS.  There is no running water there so ensure your child brings lots of water.  The bathrooms are all the way across the park so you will need to escort your child if they need to use the facilities. 

  • Buljan Middle School Address:  100 Hallissy Dr, Roseville (West Roseville area) 

Optional June meet

RETC was asked to participate in the 59th annual Golden West Invitational.  The nice thing about this meet is that it is in our own backyard (Oak Ridge HS, El Dorado Hills).  Much closer than many of our future meets will be located.  RETC will need to register your youth athlete for this meet, but no coaches are available at this time to attend the meet.  Let Coach Maura K know if you want to attend so you can get properly registered.  Although the meet is sanctioned as a USATF meet, they are not requiring USATF memberships to compete. 

  • Meet Flier URL:   http://goldenwestinvitational.org/ 
  • Date:  Saturday, June 9
  • Location:  Oak Ridge High School (1120 Harvard Way, El Dorado Hills)
  • Cost:  $20 per athlete
  • Events:
    • High School age group:  full slate of track & field events
    • Elementary & Middle School athletes:  100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1600m, Long Jump 
  • RETC registered athletes/events
    • Elementary Age Group
      • Lila:  800m, 1600m
      • Samantha:  400m, Long Jump

3M Meet Success - May 19

Our lone RETC athlete at the 3M meet in Oakland represented the team well.  Go Jamie! 

  • 9-10 year old boys Turbo Javelin
    • Jamie (28.02m) 1st place

Fifth RETC Meet (Tommie Smith) - May 19 

Thank you for your support allowing Coach Maura and Coach Kent to miss the track meet so we could support our own 14-year old son in his basketball tournament.  They won!  It is only the second time this season that Coach Kent has been able to attend his son's basketball tournament due to being a HS track coach so your support was really appreciated! Also Coach Amanda's grandma died this past week so she was at her funeral.  Coach Eric's son was graduating from college plus he had an aunt unexpectedly die who's funeral was today as well.  We don't like to send our team to meets without our coaching staff ... but this was a weekend of exceptions.  Big shout out to Coach Sue who went early to reserve our team area, Coach Mike who helped wherever needed and Team Admin Ms. Stephanie who worked throughout the meet with the timer to try and fix the missing or incorrect results for our athletes.  What a hot mess!

There seems to be a lot of DNSs for athletes that were at the meet.  In several instances we know the athletes competed in the event.  Want to craft an e-mail to the meet director outlining all the events we need to locate results for.  Please can you send an e-mail to Coach Maura K at bookoutgen@yahoo.com if your child has a DNS next to their event and let us know "yes" or "no" they did compete.  If yes, do you have an idea what their mark/time was?

We also learned that they were not distributing any awards at the meet.  Instead they expect the clubs to come to their office location in Oakland on Monday to pick up our awards.  That won't happen!  So we'll be asking them to mail our awards for our athletes.  Looking at the results below ... very impressive!

Once they load the results to Athletic.Net we can identify who set new RETC Club Records or advanced into the RETC Top 10 best ever marks for their age group / event.
