Welcome Track & Field , and Cross Country ! Thank you for visiting our team website. The Kern County Athletic All-Stars are one of the few nationally ranked Track and Cross Country teams in Kern County. By offering both programs, we are virtually a year round track club. Kern County Athletic All-Stars have won 87 National Championship medals in the last 9 1/2 years as a track club, although we've only competed at the national level for 7 years.
The Kern County Athletic All-Stars recently took 12 kids for the AAU Cross CountryJunior Olympics meet at Rim Rock Farms, Lawrence, KS December 5th - 7th, 2014. At that event, the athletes won 8 medals, including 2 All Americans (Top 8), Pedro Cruz , Boys Intermediate 6th Place 5K 16:54; Kathe Ostberg, girls primary, 5th Place 2K 7:59.
This years goal includes travel to the Western National Championship in Reno,
NV, and for some youngester a possible trip to the AAU National Jr. Olympics in Norfolk, VA. Unfortuantaly many kids won’t be able to go and realize their Olympic Dream without help from the community. This is why founder and head coach Ron Ryan had a vision to help these deserving young stars and created the Rosedale Racers scholorship fund over 8 years ago. Since then both businesses and caring residents have contributed to the dream of 148 different athletes and their travels to various national events. Won’t you please help us provide an experience of a lifetime for these athletes?
We estimate the cost per each athlete for the 3 day trip to Modesto to be $150, and 4 day trip to Reno to be $450 and the 10 day trip to the Junior Olympics to be about $1,035 each. This presents a tremendous need for support from the community if we are going to reward each of our qualifying athletes with an Olympic experience. We will have about 50 boys & girls trying to realize their dreams. We sure hope we can count on your support.
