Welcome to the Rochelle Area Track Club.

We are looking forward to the SUMMER 2019 track season !

Our track club is entering its 42nd season of

participation in youth track and field.

We want to thank you for your support and participation.


  • The RATC is a private track club open to all Rochelle, Illinois area youth and adults ages 6­-99 who are interested in developing their skills in track and field. The club has been serving Rochelle area youth since 1978.
  • We are a member of the Illinois Association of USA Track and Field (USATF).
  • RATC coaches provide track and field instruction in a positive and fun atmosphere. The club will host the 42nd annual Rochelle Invitational on June 15th, 2019 and will travel to several Northern Illinois area track meets.


  • Practices are held each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, June 4th-July 25th.
  • 5:30-7:00 p.m. (no practices the week of July 4th)
  • There are several area track meets the RATC athletes will compete in. The meets are usually held on Saturdays and all meets are optional. Transportation and supervision to/from track meets is the responsibility of the athletes parents/guardians.
  • Club members don't need to be at every practice and meet to participate.

  • Practices are held at the Creason Athletic Complex track at Rochelle Township High School, located at 1401 Flagg Rd in Rochelle.

  • The cost to join is $50.00 per athlete which covers the ($25.00) cost of their required USATF membership, limited insurance, a club t-­shirt, and access to club training equipment and facilities. An additional $2 to ­$5 per event is charged for each track meet event an athlete signs up for during the season. No fee is charged for club members' events at our home meet.

  • A $40. refundable fee is also collected to run our home track meet. One person per family is required to volunteer at the track meet in order to receive the refund. If a family member can't work the money is used to hire a person to help.
