The Institute-Varsity-Polytechnic Games (IVP Games) is a series of sports and games that students of the local tertiary institutions compete in annually.

Every year, our athletes look forward to representing the school to compete with other tertiary institutions.

OUR PEOPLE IN ACTION
DO I NEED TO AUDITION TO GET INTO THE CLUB?
NO, SMU Athletics welcomes any student who is interested in taking up the sport!
"I have never been good at running so I wish to challenge myself and get fitter. I also wish to make some friends and have fun!"
- Ong Hao Jan, Shannon, LKSCB, Year 1
"Because I love track and field, and I want to join a close community to make friends."
- Tan Kwan Shao Gabriel, School of Economics, Year 1
Training sessions are open to all (no prior experience required) and we welcome everyone at all levels of fitness in both teams and implore you to join us on this journey. Join us for a session and see how it goes!
In the competitive team, we look at a higher commitment level to work towards representing the school in key athletics events (this includes IVP / Singapore University Games and other outside competitions).
On the other hand, the recreational side holds semiweekly runs catered towards different levels of fitness.
As the nature of the competitive team requires a higher level of commitment, there is a requirement for members to attain 75% attendance for training. Meanwhile, we would encourage anyone interested in joining the recreational team to attend a minimum of 5 runs per semester.
You can drop us a DM on our Instagram page or email us if you have any enquiries and we’ll be sure to get back to you.
Nope! Both teams (competitive & recreational) only have 2 training sessions per week. Each training session will last up to 2 hours.
We hold other events such as alumni networking sessions and festive holidays celebration. On top of that, we are also organising CSP to allow members to clear their community service requirements. So do keep a lookout for it!
