News and Announcements
Please go to RETC’s Athletic.Net account for all information related to our club & how to join.
Revolution Express (RETC) is a competitive traveling club for youth track & field. Do not join unless you expect to consistently train and compete (missing a competition is by exception only) throughout the entire six month season. Middle school and high schoolers train & compete with RETC after their school season is over. If your middle / high school does not have a track team or you are home schooled you are welcome to join our spring team as well.
Youth athletes between the ages of 7-18 are invited to train and compete with our club. Not sure if this sport is for you ... come watch a practice and see if this what you'd like to do.
The following disciplines are available for RETC atheletes to train in:
Running: Sprinting, distance, hurdles, steeplechase, relays
Race Walking: 1500m, 3000m
Jumps: Long jump, triple jump, high jump
Pole Vault: training can begin in the 7th grade
Throws: shot put, discus, turbo javelin, javelin, hammer
Outdoor Track & Field Season: February-July
During the AAU/USATF club season Revolution Express travels throughout Northern California and up to Reno for competitions. At this time only a couple of local Sacramento area AAU clubs host meets so as a result it means an all-day trek for the family on a Saturday or Sunday. Because the distance is typically a 1 1/2 - 2 hour drive each way to a competition we try to limit our participation to two meets a month during the track season.
In the summer (mid-June through early August) we also participate in local all-comer meets when they are available.
So you want to join RETC! Bring the following documentation with you to your first practice.
- 2018 Revolution Express Club Membership form (3 page form - download from website @ link @ bottom of page)
- 1 copy of original birth certificate - only if you are new to RETC
- Check or cash to cover appropriate fees
- DO NOT COME to your first practice without these items
