The purpose of Sapulpa Chieftains Track & Field is to provide individual skill development which will enhance the overall team performance, as well as allow individuals the opportunity to excel at the highest levels of competition. We pride ourselves with coaching multi-sport student-athletes and working with off-season athletic programs.

There are three teams; Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Junior High. The Varsity includes 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. Junior Varsity consists of 9th, 10th, and 11th graders. The Junior High team has 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students. Team placement is determined by performance in jumps, throws, and running times. Tryouts are in late fall after football season and early spring following basketball.
