Boasting a membership of 22 affiliate institutions, the Singapore Athletic Association (SAA) continues to build on its proud history and tradition as Singapore’s governing body in the track and field for the new millennium.

Founded in 1934, SAA’s historic footprints began more than 60 years ago when we opened our doors to Singapore’s early athletes at the Farrer Park Stadium. Since then, the SAA has toiled and grown, and is now poised to chart new territories for the future.
