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.
Sincerely,

Bob Leetch

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:

https://www.redondoinvitational.com/meet-info

 

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 runruhsboosterpresident@gmail.com with any questions.

 

Thank you.

Track Parent Meeting 2/25 and Syllabus

Posted on February 23, 2020 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Dear Parents and Athletes,

Our athletic director, Andy Saltsman is encouraging all spring sports teams to have a parent meeting this month.  Our parent meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 25th at 6:30 pm in the field house meeting room.  This room is located behind the visitor bleachers in the football stadium/track. The meeting will last until approximately 7:30 pm.  It is important that one parent or guardian from each family make every effort to attend.  We will be discussing the upcoming track meets, our own Redondo Nike Invitational Track Meet, practice policies and so on. You will have the chance to be introduced to our coaches and the expectations and goals for our team during this season will be discussed.

 

Also, attached here is the Track Syllabus/Contract for our current track season.  A copy of this will also be handed out to students during practice this week. The signed contract (on the last page) is due on February 21st and is to be handed to your Coach.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the parent meeting on February 25th.

 

Thank you,

Four-Way Meet (2/22)

Posted on February 19, 2020 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Dear Parents and Athletes,

We are excited about the official start of our track season! This Saturday, February 22nd, our athletes will be competing in a four-way meet at Los Alamitos High School along with Canyon, Yorba Linda, and Los Alamitos. We hope to see many of you there cheering on our team as they have been working hard in preparation for our season.

The address of Los Alamitos HS is:  3591 W Cerritos Ave, Los Alamitos, CA 90720

  • Buses for the athletes will leave from the student parking lot promptly at 2:00 pm.
  • All athletes should come in their team uniforms, warm-ups, and wear extra layers that are in REDONDO colors since it will be cold in the evening!  All items including spikes and trainers should be marked with the name of the athlete. Every meet someone loses a part of their belongings and we rarely find the owner of unmarked items!
  • Athletes should bring a water bottle and healthy snacks. There will be a snack bar available.
  • No charge for spectator admissions.
  • All athletes have been informed of the event or events they will be competing in. This could always change on the day of the meet due to adjustments made due to illness or injuries.
  • Athletes are expected to remain until the conclusion of the meet and ride back to Redondo with the team.

We do not have a time schedule at this point. If the host school sends one out after all entries have been finalized, I will post it to our team website. The meet starts at 4:30, and it is estimated to end at approximately 8:00 pm, but that is just an educated guess at this point!

Here is the T&F_Order of Events for this meet.

Saturday 2/8 Practice

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

*DISTANCE Runners ONLY*

 

Dear Parents,

This coming Saturday 2/8 our weekend run will begin at the Westridge Trailhead.

Please meet at the RUHS student parking lot at 7:15 am.  We would appreciate help with carpooling.  It’s typically around 40 minutes to the trail in the morning.

It is an absolutely beautiful run for the kids and a great hike/walk for the parents. Parents can bring dogs.  We will have a small picnic after for the kids.  We are asking for contributions of energy bars, fruit, Gatorade, etc. to feed about 6 people.

We usually do the run, have breakfast, take photos, and split.

Following is the location of the trailhead and where to park.

Westridge Trailhead
W Mandeville Fire Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90049
