Saints Athletics Club includes athletes from diverse backgrounds and in recent times, we have welcomed our first female athlete. Schoolboys compete regularly for the Club at junior levels and the Club also has a number of senior athletes of national and international standard. Indeed many Australian representatives at both the Commonwealth and Olympic Games have represented, at one time, the Saints Athletics Club.
The Athletics Club provides coaching support for the School, umpiring and judging support on Sports Days in the Junior and Senior Schools and has benefited greatly from the School’s newly completed permanent track and field infrastructure.
The Club has survived for many years as an independent body affiliated to the Association, avoided merger and continues to do well in testing times for this sport in which the School and the Old Scholars have a long and successful tradition. St Peter’s Collegians’ Senior Men is still the most successful Senior Mens Club in South Australian Athletics history.
