New Athletic Field Improvement Project

If you missed it on the front page of the Sacramento Bee, a family of Killdeer have taken residence on our completed field to hatch their eggs. While the Field is ready for athletic use, the district has made the decision to let the eggs hatch before we are allowed to open the new athletic field. Given the timeline of when the eggs were found and the incubation period of a Killdeer we are playing wait and see, but are hopeful we are talking days and not weeks.

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.”

Rio Track and Field Weekly Communication: February 10-16, 2019

Practice Schedule:

Practice has officially begun effective February 4th! The new Rio Track Stadium should be ready in about a month. San Juan Unified School District has cleared us, and El Camino High School has graciously invited us to practice at their Stadium. While we are sports rivals, we are good friends with their coaching staff and many of their athletes!

We are planning to use the the El Camino Facility M/W/F until we can get access to our new Track & Field. Your student athlete should have brought home a permission slip for you to sign.

While we strongly encourage all athletes to attend practice at El Camino on those days, 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.

  • MONDAY (2/11) Practice @ El Camino H.S. 3:30-5:00 PM / Rio Spring Sports Meeting 6:00 PM
  • TUESDAY (2/12) Practice @ RIO 3:15-5:00PM
  • WEDNESDAY (2/13) Practice @ El Camino H.S. 3:30-5:00 PM
