Rio Track and Field Weekly Communication: March 31-April 6, 2019

Practice Schedule:

The weather forecast is calling for rain again this week. Please make sure you have signed up for Remind here in case we make any last minute schedule changes.

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

The new athletic field is in the final stages! We are awaiting final word on the date we can start training in our new facility, we anticipate no later than mid April…hopefully sooner! Check out the latest progress video by parent volunteer, Ron Salvatori.

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.
