Winter Conditioning Club is for all RHS students but is a great way to get in shape leading up to the track & field season.

The Metro League has 17 schools and this year, only 3 locations for meets (Nathan Hale, West Seattle, and Ingraham). To help these large meets run smoothly, the district is assigning each school to run specific events at each track meet.
We will need lots of parent volunteers at each meet to allow our coaches to coach athletes, and not spend their time moving hurdles and measuring jumping distances. Keep in mind, you will only need to volunteer for the duration of the specific event, not the entire track meet! Plus this will get you close up on the field for a great view of your athlete!
Please volunteer for as many shifts as you can and take note of the meet location at: (Update when schedule is out)
Seattle Public Schools does not charge a fee for athletes to participate in sports. This means our teams need support to cover costs. To fill these gaps, we luckily have the Roosevelt Athletic Boosters (RAB), which is a parent group that supports all sports teams at RHS (The general Booster fund) and helps pay for our school trainer Casey. In addition, Track & Field has it’s own Booster account which funds our team.
Items previously purchased through our Track & Field RAB donations:
This year our goal is to fundraise enough money to pay for new uniforms and new javelins for THIS season (expected cost around $5.5k), and to start saving money toward (or purchase) a new high jump pit kit (a cost of $10k), none of which the district can contribute towards. We currently do not have enough uniforms for all of our team members nor do we have javelins that pass inspection at Invitationals. Finally, our high jump pit is over 20 years old and has rips and tears as well as foam that is breaking down. We want to replace it before there are any safety issues.
We are asking families to consider making a tax deductible donation to Track & Field through the Roosevelt Athletic Boosters (RAB is a 501(C)3 Organization, Tax ID: 34-2022-806).
The suggested donation is $125 per athlete, although all donations are greatly appreciated.
Our team goal is 100% participation by our Track & Field Families! To donate, please click the DONATE button on this page or click HERE and select “Track & Field” from the drop-down menu.
Shoes: Please wear athletic running shoes to all practices. Some athletes choose to purchase track spikes for races but these are not mandatory.
Warm up gear: Please dress for the weather. Warm up pants and jacket/sweatshirt may be necessary to keep muscles warm during the first few weeks of the season and during all track meets.
Team Hoodie: Traditionally, early each season, captains design a team hoodie and athletes are given the opportunity to purchase.
Uniforms/Shorts: Uniform tops will be provided. However, athletes will need to provide their own plain black running shorts for meets.
Sports Duffle Bag: If you are interested, you can purchase a Roosevelt Sports Duffle bag from the Green and Gold Exchange (store), link HERE. [NOTE: store is only open during the school year]
Coach Collier has been a pillar of the running community at RHS for nearly 30 years. He built the RHS Men's Cross Country team (fall season), taking many runners to compete at the state level. His leadership with our Track & Field team has helped train many competitive athletes in Metro, Districts and our State Meets. Many of our athletes continue their careers at the collegiate level.
