Soccer (F)

Both RP’s male and female soccer teams have each made a mark for themselves in both the sport and the community. The Soccer (Male) team competes in the Polytechnic-ITE (POL-ITE) Games, as well as the prestigious Institute-Varsity-Polytechnic (IVP) Games. A constant force to be reckoned with, the Male team has produced a fine pool of players who are now professional players plying their trade in the S.League and Malaysian League. Soccer internationals like Syazwan Buhari, Gabriel Quak, Sheikh Abdul Hadi and Al-Qaasimy are all proud alumni of the RP soccer team.

Their female counterparts are not to be outdone, having consistently been crowned POL-ITE Games Champions since 2012. The women’s team has seen an increase in the number of players to more than 30 since its reformation in 2007 with only 9 members. In addition to pursuing sporting achievements, the girls constantly look for ways to give back to society, such as conducting football clinics for girls and sports programmes for the RP community. The players also constantly upgrade themselves and participated in the inaugural Grassroots Coaching Course that was first launched by Football Association of Singapore in early 2015.
