Shooting

OVERVIEW

Shooting.png Singapore Sports School Shooting Academy trains in a world-class 10m shooting range on the school’s premises. The 30-bay range, built to host the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in 2010, is fully equipped with an electronic target scoring system. This state-of-the-art shooting facility paved the way for the setting up of the Shooting Academy in 2012.

As shooting is not available as a Co-Curricular Activity in primary schools, the Shooting Academy conducts the Learn-To-Shoot programme quarterly to identify individuals that may have potential in the sport. Within three years of setting up the Academy, the Sports School produced its first world champion in the 10m Air Rifle event. Martina Lindsay P Veloso, then 14, beat the Beijing 2008 Olympic gold medallist Kateřina Emmons to clinch the 2014 ISSF World Cup title.

Several student-athletes from the Shooting Academy have also achieved success in international competitions such as the World Junior and Southeast Asian Championships. This is testament of the success of the Learn-To-Shoot programme in identifying student-athletes with potential. The Academy also adopts a Long-Term Athlete Development approach in coaching, integrating sport science services and world-class coaching to deliver a premier youth shooting programme.
