Practice Schedule:

The Weather has been a challenge for us over the last couple of weeks, requiring us to cancel or change location for practice. If there is a last minute change to the practice schedule Coach Boler will post practice information on the whiteboard outside his office as well as have an announcement made over the school PA during lunch. Additionally, we will send out a Remind Notice to inform everyone of time-critical information. Please make sure you have signed up for the Remind class.

We strongly encourage all athletes to attend practice at El Camino on the days assigned for their discipline / event; however, we understand that transportation may be an issue for some. We will have at least one coach remain at Rio for any athletes that can’t make it to El Camino due to transportation issues.

Coaches will continue to communicate practice times and changes to the athletes however, you can check riotrackxc.com for the current Track & Field calendar as well as any news updates. Additionally, if you use Google Calendars, you can add the Rio Track & Field calendar.

New Athletic Field Improvement Project

SJUSD has given us an update on the timelines regarding the new athletic field improvement project. Here’s what they had to say…

The weather has not been kind to the construction process, but the team is still targeting mid-March if we can get Mother Nature to cooperate. The first two layers of the track surfacing are in place, and the final layer will require several dry days. After that, they will stripe the track and do some tune-ups and go through a “punch list” of small items to tighten up throughout. The restroom/concession stand will be ongoing after the field/track is turned over to the site for use.”

RAAB Membership Dues

If you haven’t already done so, please pay your RAAB dues as soon as possible. Dues are $75 per player for one sport, or $125 for the year for multiple sports. These dues are critical to the success of our Athletic Programs at Rio, paying for coaching stipends, operating expenses, etc. It’s a small amount to pay for all that our children receive from the sports programs. RAAB Membership Dues
