Members of the Jenks America Track Club (children through adult) from Jenks and the surrounding communities experience exceptional training and unmatched opportunities to get fit, and compete against their peers on the local, state and national levels. Our youth have brought home more than 1100 National medals in the last 21 years.
Since its inception in 1993, JATC members have captured more than 850 T&F and XC national-championship medals, including 110 first-place individual and team medals.
During last July’s outdoor track-and-field national championships, JATC athletes brought home two national championships and 27 top-10 finishes at one of the premier and most competitive youth events in the country.
And at last December’s AAU Cross Country National Championships, one national champion, one second-place team, five All-Americans and 22 national medals came home to Oklahoma.
Our consistently strong results have bolstered the number and amount of scholarships offered to our student-athletes from institutions across the country. To date, 170 current and former athletes have received scholarship offers worth millions of dollars. Visit our alumni page to see some of the colleges and universities for which JATC members have gone on to compete.
Though we train to compete at a high level, we know that results are measured by more than medals. Improvements to personal records, 100-percent efforts at training sessions and competitive meets and simply finishing the race may be celebrated milestones.
