We Are Clackamas Track and Field
To Our Supporters – Since the inception of CHS, track and field has been an integral part of the athletics program. This non-cut sport allows athletes the opportunity to compete for CHS in their chosen events alongside athletes of similar skill levels. Athletics connects students together and to their school. Approximately 200 CHS track athletes benefit as part of Team Clackamas. A unique advantage of our team is the consistent relationships between coaches and athletes. Coaches often train athletes throughout their high school track career, seeing them grow as competitors.
The district-approved fee for each track and field athlete is $175—one of the lowest for any team sport at CHS. This fee covers meet fees, bus transportation, coach stipends, facilities maintenance, and a basic uniform. Track fees alone, however, cannot cover the full cost to compete. In addition to the basic uniform, each athlete receives a Nike Clackamas team sweatshirt. This sweatshirt fosters a sense of identity, community, and team pride on and off-campus and beyond the season. Track fees also do not cover the individual equipment needs of each event. Equipment wears out. Some of our current equipment is a decade old. Upgrading starting blocks for runners and implements for field athletes increases costs exponentially.
How are your Donations Used? – With our 2020 spring season being canceled, we were not able to conduct our annual trip raffle that brings in our additional funding needed to run our program. Would you become part of our team by investing financially? We are raising money for:
- New implements
- New training equipment
- Meet fees
- Travel costs
- Team sweatshirts
