Prospective Student-Athletes’ Sports School Experience

2018 Singapore Sports School Orientation Camp

They stretched their limits, they perspired, they laughed, they bonded. For two days, 106 prospective student-athletes participated in the Singapore Sports School Orientation Camp (SSOC)to prepare them for the start of their new journey in 2019.

From 17 to 18 October 2018, the Primary 6 pupils had a foretaste of their next four years – or more – as Singapore Sports School student-athletes. The prospective student-athletes were introduced to the Sports School campus and culture through various activities during the camp, opportunities to interact with their seniors at training, and the boarding experience.

The budding youth athletes participated in teambuilding activities organised by their Sports School seniors and School Captains, including a Dragon Boat activity at Kallang, which allowed them to forge closer bonds with their peers. They showed their teamwork and rhythmic ability – essential coordination and cooperation skills in sport – in a percussion performance to conclude the two-day camp.

The SSOC is the first of a two-part event. The second segment will kick-off when they return to Sports School as Secondary 1 student-athletes which begins with them checking in to Boarding on 1 January 2019.
