The weather has been cold and wet this week, but the athletes have worked hard and practiced through the weather. With the new Rio Track Stadium not quite complete we will continue to use El Camino High School’s Facility as needed. We anticipate using the El Camino Facility through early to mid-March.
With the need to balance different disciplines of Track and Field workouts with having coaches available at both Rio and El Camino we have broken out the practice schedule by discipline/event type.
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 (https://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 (https://firstname.lastname@example.org).

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.
