The Club continues to promote young athletes and is consistently ranked among the top track and field clubs in Canada.

STFC has produced Olympians, a Rhodes Scholar and athletes who have won World Championship medals.

In addition, Club athletes have won many National Championship medals and over 1600 Provincial titles.

Founded in 1982 by Earl and Geordie Farrell, the Club continues to turn out athletes who excel in their sports.

Not only does the Club turn out athletes who excel, it also results in well-rounded individuals who then go on to apply what they’ve learned through dedication, determination and goal-setting to other areas of life as they move into the future.
