Track & Field

The track team is open to all 6th through 8th grade students. Try-outs are held at the end of February. At that time, parents are given an informational packet (which includes a form for the mandatory physical examination each player must receive).

The team practices throughout the spring and participates in 3-4 track meets, along with the county meet.

All students who participate in sports at Shafer Middle School must be passing his/her grade, have two or less In-School Suspensions and no Out-Of School Suspensions. A schedule will be posted on the website before the season begins.
