RVC Track Club

Who should join a Track Club?  The answer is simple…Everyone!  Our Track Club is geared to the athlete in you, whether you’re a seasoned athlete or someone who just wants to start moving.  There’s no other place to start.
We created the Rockville Centre SPG Track Club for athletes who play different sports but have an interest in running track for fun or to stay in shape during their off season.  We wanted to give those athletes an opportunity to try track, without having to commit to lots of training and time. We make the most of our training sessions and give oAAur athletes a solid introduction to the sport.  The SPG Track Club trains once per week, with an additional optional practice during the week. Training begins in April and runs through July. There are a few local meets per month during that time. Participation in the meets is not mandatory.  The SPG Track Club will accept athletes from 7-18.

Head Coach, Jude Massillon, has 15 years as a professional Track and Field coach with National Champions from 16 different countries, under his belt.  This year, he will be attending his fifth Olympics, in a row, with his athletes.

Is Every trainer a Sports Specific Trainer ?

What to Look For in a Sports Specific Trainer

Everyone these days offers Sports Specific Personal Training.  I guess anyone can go online to become certified.  But would you entrust your child with a certified trainer?  what should you ask and look for?


When looking for someone to train your child it’s best to look for specific credentials and ask the trainer if you can observe a session with another client before making your decision.  Below are some ideas about what to look for in the trainer.


  1. What certifications does your child’s trainer hold and where did they come from?
  2. What is the trainer’s personal history?  Does he/she hold a background in athletics?
  3. How many years has the trainer worked with children?
  4. How many years has the trainer devoted to Athletic Training?
  5. Has the trainer worked with any Elite trainers to develop a stronger background?
  6. Has the trainer helped to condition athletes in a variety of sports?
  7. What is the trainer’s training philosophy?
  8. Has the trainer published any books or articles in the field?
  9. Is the trainer able to handle special situations such as injuries?
  10. Does the trainer use up to date methods of training instead of just weights?


You should come armed with all of these questions and make sure the trainer can answer them.  Your efforts into developing the best athletes are paramount to seeing that athlete continue to develop in his or her sport.You are entrusting your athletes’ dreams on this trainers expertise. Their future development depend on your educated choices.
