RETC 2nd Competition (March 16) home mini meet
 
What fun to have a local club team, Buffalo Chips, join us for our annual mini meet.  We had so much fun!  Shout out to all the parents who did such a great job covering their volunteer roles to ensure the meet was a success.  Full results are loaded up at Athletic.Net.  These are marked official but BC may still go in and change some of the age groups their athletes were competing in.  Bottom line, the correct running & field marks are loaded and that is what matters more than place.

RETC Practice Routine

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 (or 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 months if that helps. There is also a multiple sibling discount for families. 


RETC Competition Schedule 

USATF Junior Olympic Nationals will be held at Sac State July 2019.  Please plan your summer family vacations so that you don't miss the USATF JO qualifier the first weekend in July.  For multi-day meets, it is acceptable to select a single day of events to compete in so you don't incure the costs of a 2-day+ out-of-town meet.
