    Boys & Girls Track & Field - Practice and tryouts will be right after Easter 2017 and season ends middle of May. We will again join the Orangevale open team, which has practices at Casa Roble HS and since this will be again run by San Juan USD, there will be no cost. The track and field director is Jan Richmond from Orangevale Open.
    Boys Volleyball - Cost is expected to be $60 per player this year. Expect a 5 week season in early spring of 2017. Practices are at Gold River DC Multi-Purpose Room and will compete against local middle schools. The Boys volleyball contact will be the GRDC Sports Coordinator (listed at bottom).
    Parents interested in coaching or having any questions should contact the GRDC Sports Coordinator Robert Raffaelli at (916) 715-5802 or at
