RETC Coach's Bios
Coach Kent (Head Coach / sprints)
• Certified USATF Level 1 Coach
• Red Cross First Aid / CPR certified

Coach Kent began his coaching career while still an athlete at Azusa Pacific University (APU) by training his fellow collegiate athletes. You might remember one of them … Dave Johnson who competed in decathlon at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games.  Upon graduation from APU Coach Kent held the Jump Coach position for Rubidoux High School (Riverside, CA) for two years. He was recruited from here to Oklahoma Baptist University (OBU) to become an assistant coach where he trained track and field (T&F) athletes in all disciplines. His first year at OBU the men’s team won the national NAIA T&F title. From OBU he went to Tulsa, OK to become a full-time high school teacher / head track coach for the largest high school in the state (Broken Arrow HS). Coach Kent returned to California and settled in Roseville, CA where he became a certified personal trainer and the head sprint coach at Granite Bay High School (GBHS). His second year at GBHS the boys 4x100M relay team took 4th place at the California State T&F meet. For the 2003-2004 school year he accepted a position at Woodcreek High School as a full-time Business & Careers teacher / Head T&F coach.  In May 2004, Coach Kent observed a lack of T&F development programs for youth in the greater Roseville area so he launched the Roseville Express Track Club (RETC). By the end of the summer RETC had grown to over 40 youth members.  In the spring 2007 Coach Kent began teaching at both Woodcreek & Oakmont High Schools and became the co-head T&F coach at Granite Bay High School focusing on sprinters and hurdlers.  In 2011 he joined the Rocklin HS T&F staff as the sprint, hurdle and high jump coach.

Coach Adarian (Horizontal Jumps)

Adarian Barr is the Director and CEO of Next Level Athletics and Fitness. He has been involved in athletics since the age of 9 when he began competing. He is deeply passionate about athletics and feels strongly about aiding in the positive advancement of all sports.  

Adarian was Californias High School Boys Triple Jump State Champion. After high school he attended the University of Colorado, Boulder and California State University, Chico where he still holds school records. After college he went on to coach at the collegiate level. He coached both Cross Country and Track and Field at Division 1 through Division 3 schools including Indiana State University. He has been coaching for over 17 years producing numerous Collegiate Track and Field Conference Champions, All-Americans, All Conference and School record holders. 

Adarian has a Masters Degree in Physical Education; is a USATF Level I Lead Instructor; a USATF Level II Certified Coach in sprints, jumps, hurdles and relays; and a NESTA Speed Agility Quickness Trainer. 

Adarian still competes and is a ranked and champion master athlete. In 2006 he was the number 1 ranked USA Masters Track and Field long and triple jumper in the 40-44 age group. In 2007 he was the number 1 and 2 ranked USA Masters Track and Field triple and long jumper in the 40-44 age group.

Next Level Athletics and Fitness is Adarians next great accomplishment. It started back in 1999 with the creation of the Combo Lift. The Combo Lift came about because there was a need for a lift that would work multi-joints; that could be used to build speed, power and strength for his track athletes at Bethany College. Next Level Athletics and Fitness has allowed Adarian to continue his passion for knowledge of athletics and to share this knowledge with anyone with an open mind and an equal passion for pushing human performances.
