FOUNDED in August 2011, Club ZOOM is Singapore’s newest track and field club, and arguably, the most vibrant.
From beginner to elite, club athletes train two to five times a week and race regularly in both local and regional races. Club ZOOM believes in identifying and nurturing would-be champions from young, allowing ample time to explore, enjoy, and enhance their athletic abilities at their own pace.
Children as young as five can join weekly fun sessions that expose and engage them in a multitude of progressive athletic challenges. Aspiring athletes may then embark on Club ZOOM’s Long Term Development Programme, which plans and tracks their progress all the way to elite level, where applicable.
Progress is individually tested and benchmarked by Club ZOOM’s sprints, jumps, throws, and middle-distance coaches, whose coaching experience stretches 17 years.
A strength of Club ZOOM’s athlete body is its multi-ethnic, multi-national character. Members hail from Japan, UK, US, Australia, France, India, Malaysia, and Singapore.
A distinctly family atmosphere is another Club hallmark. Athletes, coaches, and their families routinely partake of post-training birthday celebrations and group outings to public events.
The Club motto: “True to the Spirit” refers to these universal values, developed through the rigours of training. Club ZOOM’s commitment to these values underscores its conviction that whether or not one becomes a champion athlete, everyone can be a champion in life.
While Club ZOOM maintains a strictly secular environment, its “12 Core Values“, comprising good bearing, character, commitment, discipline, humility, industry, integrity, leadership, loyalty, responsibility, service, and sportsmanship, are continually emphasized.
