Welcome to Revolution Express Track Club!

No practice (Thurs., February 21)
 
Tis the season for CIF HS soccer playoff games in the road to the HS state championships.  Rocklin HS has been secured by CIF for a soccer playoff game for this Thursday and RETC has been asked to cancel practice as we cannot utilize any other fields at the school that evening.  If it makes you feel better, we'll be dodging another cold night as the expected temperatures at 6 pm that night will be 47 degrees (before wind chill).
 
See you all on Monday, Febraury 25.  Coach Sue will be returning as our throws coach that week so be prepared to start practicing the javelin (Mondays) and shot put (Thursdays).
 
Good news is daylight savings switches back in two more weeks (Sunday, March 10) so that will help us immensely with field access when RHS has to bump us for a school related event. 

RETC kicks off 16th season (February 11)
RETC will hold practices 2x a week from mid-February through end of May. June and July we'll practice 3x a week. 
  • First day of practice: Monday, February 11 
  • Practice days:  Monday & Thursday (through end of May)
    • Add Tuesday to practice schedule for June & July
  • Practice time:  6-7:30 pm
  • Practice location:  Rocklin HS through end of May
To join the team, show up 10-15 minutes early the first day to complete the team application (you can also download it from the "Join RETC" link on the left nav and bring it with you.  Also bring a copy of your birth certificate as all date of births must be validted by USATF before the first competition.
 
For fees, to bring with you, see "Join RETC."   We cannot take credit cards at this time so only checks or cash is accepted.  You can divide payments into two or three if that helpls.  There is also a multiple sibling discount for families.

Mandatory Parent Meeting (Thurs., February 28)

At least one parental unit for each family on the team must attend this meeting.  We will have sign-ups for our two hosted home meets and you'll want to pick your event instead of having Coach Maura assign you!  This is also where we answer all your questions how the team works.  For our returning parents, please come prepared to share what you learned in your past year(s) on the team that a first year family would benefit from.

  • Date:  Thursday, February 28
  • Time:  6:15-7:30 pm
  • Location:  Stadium seats closet to the snack bar (if it is raining bring your lawn chair and we'll meet in the track shed out past the high jump pit

RETC 1st Competition (Sat., March 9)

This will be one of our furthest meets this season.  We will work out the kinks together.  Pack double how much food & drinks you think you'll want to eat.  Also encourage books, cards or other games the kids can play in the stands to keep themselves occupied between events.  RETC will bring 2 Ez-Ups for our shade but a stadium seat is your friend and you'll want to bring one if you have it.  Don't have a collapsable wagon you can throw in the back of your car/van ... it is a worthy investment.  It is the rare track meet that you get to park near where you are sitting.

Professional Photos From RETC Meet - April 28

RETC was so blessed to have a professional photographer join us for most of the day. Several of our own RETC athletes made it into his photo shoot. He's offering a great discount price of only $4 a picture if you use his discount code. Please order his pictures versus doing a screen scrape so that we can honor the time he donated at the meet on our behalf.
