Pandemic CrossTraining on ElliptiGo – Should we let Coach Julie go?

Posted on May 12, 2020 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Dear Families,

as you know, Coach Julie Ferron is moving soon. If we could prevent her from moving and staying for the team, we would but not buying her cool equipment is not going to accomplish that. So if you are interested, please contact her at jferron@rbusd.org

I’ve had several parents tell me that they’re unable to find the meet photos from their cell phone.  Scroll down to bottom and change to desktop version. Hope that works.

SESSION II on Friday at 4:30 pm of the Incredible Virtual Workout!!! 

Posted on March 27, 2020 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

And here we go again. Let’s try something today!

  1. Turn on your VIDEO
  2. Turn on your MICROPHONE

When the actual workout starts, Bob will MUTE everybody and then UNMUTE individual athletes as he sees fit. And if Bob sees you, he can do a little bit more coaching which is why your camera should be on.  Anybody can watch a work out video but let’s try an actual interactive coaching session.

If you are bored….  (all of us), you can check out the following:  When Bob unmutes you, you should NOT get a pop-up window saying “do you agree to be unmuted” – because then you would have to stop your workout to click buttons. It has to be somewhere in the settings – try to figure it out.

We saw lots of family members working along – great job!!!   Make sure to log in with only one device please as we only have 100 spots.  HAVE FUN!

Online Practice – a Letter from Coach Bob

Posted on March 25, 2020 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Dear Athletes,

I hope this email finds you and your family in good health.  Recent developments have been very challenging for our athletes, coaches, and support staff, all of whom prepare year-round for their opportunities to compete at the highest levels of high school track and field.  As of today, there has been no announcement to cancel the Spring season in the state.  Last week the 10 sections that represent the CIF convened to discuss the effects of COVID-19. They announced that more information was needed. The next announcement from CIF will be April 3rd. The school has announced May 5th as the return date for students.

I am now been given the opportunity to communicate with the team. First, I would like to ask that all families decide what their comfort level is with regard to exercise. Most sources encourage outdoor running as a great way to stay healthy, physically and emotionally. If your child runs outdoors, please explain to them the importance of safe social distancing or to run by themselves. As we gather information in this ever changing situation we will do our best to keep you informed.

Beginning today at 4:30 pm, we will hold a “Backyard Track” workout via the Zoom app. The practice will be challenging and fun. Expect it to last approximately 40 minutes. This is not a mandatory practice. It will not affect any grades. It is simply the first in a series of training sessions that we hope will maintain or enhance your child’s fitness. Until we are told otherwise, we are under the assumption that the season will have a conclusion. Todays practice will be limited to the first 80 that log in. We have approximately 170 athletes on the team but with everyone’s full schedules, I doubt we will meet that number. If that is the case we will upgrade the app to accommodate the larger numbers for the next practice. This particular workout will be conducted by my wife, Coach Kirsten.  We invite any family members to join in.  All we ask is that you share a device in case it gets full. You will not need much space, a small backyard or similar area should be fine.  If your child plans to participate, I recommend downloading the app ahead of the workout. Once the Zoom app has been downloaded log into;

https://us04web.zoom.us/j/840350833?pwd=aFhMdnAzN2hIV2g1WjdWMGdpN29qdz09

The most important button to know in zoom is “mute”. If your athlete is not talking to the coach or the team, please make sure they click that mute button or we won’t be able to hear anything.

These are unusual and ever changing circumstances.  As frustrating as it may be to have the season curtailed or even cancelled it is more important to focus on our families health and safety. Please follow the cdc.gov guidelines by washing hands often, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth and practicing safe social distancing of AT LEAST 6 FEET. We should be more concerned about our families’ health than sports.  Here’s a terrific video on hand washing if haven’t seen it. https://youtu.be/tIwdf3WKe3Y

Please stay safe and healthy. We hope to see you soon.

Update – Redondo Track & Field

Posted on March 13, 2020 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Parents,
On behalf of the entire coaching staff I would like to thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation during this continually changing period of time.
All practices, activities, banquets or meets are shut down through April 12th. When we return from Spring Break we will have better clarification on any league competitions and CIF playoffs. The CIF Southern Section office will be meeting next week to discuss the Spring sports playoffs and what that entails.
You should have received an email about your child coming to campus to pick their personal belongings, and district issued Chromebook. Your child may also retrieve their running gear from the track lockers between 9am-12pm Monday morning.  After Monday there will be no access to the locker rooms or campus.
Thank you for your support during this difficult time,
Bob Leetch
