We are a group of caring professionals that work in education, coaching, business, finance, and technology professions. With our different skill sets we decided to form the Rochester Running Rebels Track Club. Our club focuses on assisting young men and women from ages 8-18 in developing, and enhancing basic fundamentals in track and field. Also we look to assist the few that wish to compete nationally in USA Track and Field competition and the Jr. Olympics.
Our youth program runs during the summer months typically starting around the middle of May through late July. For those that sign up for traveling you can potentially travel to (3) events. The Association Championship is normally a one day event that happens in the Niagara Region. This is typically held within the Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse area. It's a small event but nonetheless it's competitive. Most will advance to the Region 2 Championship which is hosted in N.Y., N.J., or PA. The top 5 athletes in their event will advance to Nationals. The Region 2 Championship is over a 4 day period, but most will compete over the weekend staying overnight. For those athletes advancing to Nationals this is a week-long event that can be held anywhere in the United States. We have taken kids to Greensboro NC, Sacramento CA, Wichita KS, and Baltimore MD. This year’s goal is to go back to Greensboro North Carolina .
Our goals are committed to provide a positive environment where our youth athletes can grow, enhance their track skills, learn teamwork, respect, and discipline. Some of our older high school athletes will look to gain some collegiate exposure while competing with some top athletes throughout the country. This will surely improve their confidence and give them the ability to gauge their skills and see what they would have to improve upon. Also with national exposure kids tend to pick-up on some very good techniques and skills from other youth throughout the country which ultimately improves their overall abilities making them stronger athletes.
The Running Rebels is a Non Profit 501(c)3 program, we are a volunteered organization that does not have any paid members. We are always looking for volunteer’s coaches, and board members to assist with our youth program. If you have any experience as a throwing coach in shot, discus, and javelin we need you.
