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;

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 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.

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

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

Redondo Nike Track Festival Cancellation

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

Dear family and friends,
Thank you for your overwhelming support of our Redondo Nike Track Festival.  Due to the current situation with the concerns of the COVID-19 virus, we have decided to take the cautious route and follow the recommendations of California health officials and postponing the meet until further notice. Preparations for this meet are a massive undertaking and to postpone the meet at this time was not done hastily.  Once again we appreciate your support and understanding.

Redondo Nike Invitational 2020

Posted on March 11, 2020 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Dear Parents and Athletes,

This Friday and Saturday our Redondo Nike Invitational will take place! Thank you so much for those who have volunteered to help make this meet a success. All athletes on the team have also been given a shift or two to help support the needs of this meet and to fit with the schedule of those athletes competing.


The time schedule for both field and running events and information about spectator admissions will be found on our meet website at the link below:


Friday is our shot put, discus, f/s pole vault and distance relays. Those athletes who are competing on Friday have been informed of their events. Many athletes who are not competing, are doing their volunteer shift on Friday. It will be cool and windy so everyone should come dressed in layers and Redondo Gear. At the conclusion of the last race, those volunteering will help set up for Saturday’s all-day event.


On Saturday, the meet begins at 8:00 AM and continues the entire day. All athletes have been informed of the events they will be competing in. Not all athletes will be competing due to the high level of competition and marks not making the standard needed to compete. Most of the team has an assigned volunteer shift for Saturday.


For those f/s distance athletes who are running the 1600, their races will take place at West HS track. This allows us to be able to enter more athletes who then have a chance to compete! The girls will report to West at 7:00 am and their races begin at 8:00 AM. The boys will report to West at 8:00 AM and their races will begin approximately at 9:15 AM. All athletes competing at West will then head over to Redondo to enjoy the meet and work their volunteer shift.


Parking will be difficult so plan to arrive early so that you don’t miss an event or a volunteer shift. Besides the Diamond lot, there is additional parking by the softball field on Vincent, by the baseball field (look for the sign that points to RUHS Parking) and also over at Parras Middle School off of Prospect (backlot) and Lucia (school parking lot).


There will be a shuttle service available from 7 am to 1 pm for athletes and spectators going to and from RUHS and West HS.


Thank you again for your support of the Redondo Track program.


Please email Janice Allison at with any questions.


Thank you.
