Track and Field

Whenever someone mentions Track & Field, what comes to mind? Could it be the image of members participating in mind-numbing running on the track? People flinging themselves and random objects over bars and distances? Or perhaps even a bunch of ‘jocks’ at the gym. Maybe to you, Track & Field is a CCA of glory and Instagrammable podium pictures at the Sportshub — but there’s definitely more to this CCA than meets the eye. 

Meet Raffles Track & Field: A family with close to 30 members per batch, comprising of 4 main disciplines: sprints, throws, jumps and pole vault. From the 100m sprint to pole vault, we offer a multitude of different events. With so much variety, it’s hard not to find your place here in Track & Field, even if you are new to the Track & Field scene!

Achievements & Highlights



Since the resumption of face to face training sessions in mid-2020, the team had been training hard in hopes that the 2021 National Inter-schools Track & Field Championships would take place.  Unfortunately, the COVID-19 situation was still hanging over our heads and MOE made the call to cancel the Track & Field National School Games 2021.

Nevertheless, we were not deterred and our spirit is still strong!  We organised an internal Diamond League for our Yr5-6 members, where everyone had the opportunity to compete in their own pet events and also events which are total new to them!  This allowed the Yr6s to end their season on a high before they officially stood down from CCA sessions after that.

For the upcoming 2022 season, we are keeping our fingers crossed that the National School Games will proceed as in pre-COVID years.  Watch out for us then!
