The Plainfield Tsunami Track and Field Club is a community program that has been serving young people between the ages of 6 and 18 of Plainfield, NJ and the surrounding communities since 1994. It strives to cultivate scholar athletes by emphasizing the value of strong academics, while providing opportunities to develop the full athletic potential. In the process, the athletes learn life lessons of discipline, leadership, sportsmanship, responsibility and character.


The program continues the rich track and field tradition that pre-dates the emergence of legendary Plainfield High School product Milt Campbell, who won a gold medal in the decathlon in the 1956 Summer Olympics. The team saw its first two age-group national champions in 2005 and has since had numerous national medalists. Over the most recent five seasons, Tsunami athletes have had amazing achievements. In fact, recognizing the valuable work done at the Plainfield Tsunami Track and Field Club, Olympian Sydney McLaughlin twice designated the team as recipient of her prize for being named the Gatorade National Girls Track Athlete of the Year.

  • Several Tsunami girls have made it to the podium and earned the desirous track suit as finalists in the Colgate Women’s Game, with one being a champion;

  • Many Tsunami athletes have won numerous USATF and AAU district and association championships as well as regional titles;

  • Seven Tsunami athletes were named USATF New Jersey Athletes of the Years; and

  • Numerous Tsunami graduates have parlayed the skills they developed on the team into high school scholarships, state titles and a Gatorade NJ Track Athlete of the Year title, as well as college scholarships.
