Track and Field
ACJC Track and Field is known traditionally not only for its ability to achieve excellent results, but also for its niche at developing athletes who have little track experience into confident and motivated individuals. In recent years, ACJC Track and Field’s medalists for the Nationals events have also included those who are new to the sports thus emphasizing the comprehensive nature of its training program. Some notable examples of those who emerged as medalists despite having little background in track are the 2016 4x400m girls relay team, Gladys Ang for her 400m event in 2018, Ng Qilin for javelin and Solaimuthu Dhanabalan for the 110m hurdles in 2019.
For a CCA that is generally individual-centered in nature, the ACJC Track and Field family is well-bonded in an inclusive, affirming and supportive environment where the values developed during training and competitions translate into the holistic development of its athletes both as students and members of society. Each year, ACJC Track and Field will perform meaningful Values In Action (VIA) programs with organizations such as MINDS and Willing Hearts to further inculcate positive values that will benefit them on and off the track. Despite the recent COVID pandemic, ACJC Track and Field continued to conduct online training sessions that were thoroughly enjoyed by the team, and even participated in a VIA initiative for needy households. This ability to adapt, maintain bonds and continue contributing to the community further embody ACJC Track and Field’s motto: We don’t stop at the finish line.
