Summer Track Scheduling
Practices and meets for the summer track season will run through June, July, and part of August.
JOIN THE RPTC REMIND GROUP: Text @rptc2021 to the number 81010
Each weekend in the summer, Coach Ben will send out a Google Form with available practice times for specific events and specific coaches for the upcoming week. You will be responsible for scheduling your own practice times using this Google Form by selecting all the days/times you will be able to attend for that upcoming week. If you schedule yourself for practicing certain events at certain times, you will be expected to be there at those times and on those days.
The summer meet schedule (attached) is evolving as we find more meets to attend. You can view the most up-to-date meet schedule for the summer at www.athletic.net and searching Rising Phoenix Track Club.
We may also add our own intra-squad or all-comer meets to the schedule in July since meet options (as of right now) seem to be fairly limited this year due to the pandemic.
Whether you compete in the summer or just get out to practice and get better for next year is completely up to you!
