Revolution Express Track Club Membership

Posted by Maura Kent on Feb 01 2019 at 04:00PM PST

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.

    1. 2018 Revolution Express Club Membership form (3 page form - download from website @ link @ bottom of page)
    2. 1 copy of original birth certificate - only if you are new to RETC
    3. Check or cash to cover appropriate fees
    4. DO NOT COME to your first practice without these items
