To Do List for A Happy and Healthy New Year

Posted on January 3, 2021 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Dear Families,

we hope you are all healthy and that we will see each other in person soon – or at least the athletes.

With school starting on Monday, please note:

  • On Monday, Coach Bob will be conducting a zoom meeting/check-in in order for athletes to get credit for their PE in school and to provide guidance on where to find the training plan. If the athlete’s last name starts with A-M, the check-in is at 12:00 pm. If the athlete’s last name starts with N-Z, the check-in is at 12:15 pm.
  • If your child is part of the Redondo Premier Track Club, please make sure to pay the January fee of $50 (and any previous missed payments) by January 10th.  All payments need to be made via Venmo, @Bob-Leetch or https://venmo.com/code?user_id=2348754438979584485 or exact cash. No checks, please.
  • For the athletes that are in the Redondo Premier Track Club, practice is at 3:00 pm at Veteran’s park. By now, I guess we no longer have to remind athletes to wear a face mask and stay in your pods. Please remember that backpacks are unattended (and there are homeless people that might look for change) in the park and only necessary items should be brought. No money or phones should be left in the park.
  • Please make sure that your child’s USATF membership is current and renewed so that your child is insured.

Happy New Year! Every athlete hates this situation but at least it is great weather in California to train outside year-around. So just stay safe, don’t come to practice if there is the slightest chance you were exposed, and keep up the great attitudes that the runners showed so far. Our athletes can be proud of the way they handled themselves so far.

Smile – Amazon – it is not a donation!

Dear Families,

we are not asking for donations for obvious reasons, however, if you are about to order stuff from Amazon, please add this one step:

Instead of going to Amazon.com, go to https://smile.amazon.com/

You can select your non-profit so please look for Ruhs Cct Boosters Inc
There is no extra fee, you don’t pay more, or extra anything – just that Amazon kicks back 1% to the booster club.

2021 Here we come, here they run….

Dear Families,

as we are finally coming towards the end of this bizarre and frustrating 2020, here are some updates that paint a better picture for the future.

  • Coach Bob had three surgeries, infections, and another visit to the emergency room this week. As everything that could possibly go wrong has already gone wrong, let’s assume Bob is finally on his path to recovery. His hands and fingers are fine, he can type, and I have no doubt he would love to hear from the athletes. Bob won’t be as good as new by the time the season starts because….
  • the Season might actually start January 25! The situation will be reassessed on January 4 but as that is my birthday, I am funneling all my birthday gift energy towards good news. 🙂
  • Athletes, keep staying in shape and keep your great attitude. Wear that dang mask and just think you might save somebody’s life by doing the correct thing – who can claim that, really?

XC Season Update

Posted on December 8, 2020 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Cross Country families,

 

We would like to thank the athletes and families for your continued support as our athletes attend practice in a safe and responsible manner. Training will continue to operate under the same protocols that we’ve been following for the past several months. We will continue our commitment to the safety of our athletes, in unison with the invaluable training opportunities for the physical, psychological, and emotional well being of our terrific student-athletes.

 

There have been changes to the upcoming season schedule. The California Interscholastic Federation, or CIF, has announced that they are pushing back the start of the cross country season.  CIF has been working with the state to determine when it is safe to return to competition. After not getting guidance from the state CIF has made the choice to postpone the beginning of the season. They hope to have more information by Jan 1st.

 

It is important that parents and athletes understand there is no penalty for not attending training during this time. We respect every family’s decision making for their child and we respectfully support your choice. We have provided a training program for athletes not participating in In-Person training.

Sincerely,

Letter from Coach Kelley

Posted on June 4, 2020 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Seniors,

 

Congratulations on the completion of your high school lives. Graduation is always filled with many emotions from sadness to thrill and I hope that each of you embrace that complete range of emotions. I want to say thank you for being tremendous leaders. The Class of 2020 track athletes have always displayed qualities of leadership that have put our track team in a great place for the future. Although our season this year was very brief, it was immensely memorable. Personally this year was one of the most memorable; not because of the obvious reason, but in terms of my enjoyment coaching this team. This team had a closeness that others before were not as fortunate to share. From birthdays to team gatherings this team was united in a very unique way. I will cherish those memories as a coach and I thank you, Class of 2020, for making this group a TEAM!

 

Coach Kelley
