F.A.Q. Section

Where is the training location and what time does it meet?

For our program kick-off, we meet at the Rio Americano High School. We are meeting there this year to afford you a more comprehensive orientation program to start the season. Okay, the real reason is that it’s a nice indoor facility that is warm and dry! Who wants to stand around in the cold all morning?  Click here for the Rio Americano High School map and directions.

After January 20, our meeting location will move to our regular spot – William Pond Park in Carmichael – for our workouts throughout the season. We start our training at 8:30 A.M. Not too early and not too late. You’ll be done before your family or friends are even awake.  Click here for the William Pond Park map and directions.

When does the season start?

We start on Saturday, January 6, 2018, at 8:30 A.M.

How much does the program cost?
