Singapore Sports School Badminton Academy has a close partnership with Singapore Badminton Association (SBA). About 80 per cent of our badminton players, upon entering the Sports School, qualified into SBA’s National Intermediate Squad (NIS). The SSP Badminton Academy School-Within-A-School programme is to maximise the potential of all the student athletes and to meet the criteria of the National Intermediate Squad.  

Badminton Academy student-athletes in the School-Within-A-School (SWS) programme are led by Head Coach Gong Ge and four coaches. The unique collaboration with SBA also sees Sports School’s coaches doubling up as NIS coaches, resulting in a greater alignment of the Badminton Academy’s programme to the national setup’s.  

Since the SWS began in 2011, our youth shuttlers have shown dominance in the local scene and achieved notable results at the regional level. Being in the NIS, student-athletes in the SWS programme have more opportunities to travel and compete overseas, thus giving them greater competition exposure.  

The Badminton Academy also conducts pre-Singapore Sports School programmes. Interested candidates can read more about the programmes by clicking the "PROGRAMMES AND COMPETITIONS" tab above.

Primary 4 to 6 Invitational Training

 Singapore Sports School collaborates with Singapore Badminton Association to identify Primary 4 to 6 pupils with potential in the sport. These selected pupils are invited to train with Sports School to enhance their sport development.

Training Camp for Top 8 Primary 4 and 5 Pupils

Singapore Sports School collaborates with the Singapore Badminton Association to invite the top eight athletes (four boys and four girls) in each level of Primary 4 and Primary 5 to attend an intensive training camp in the Sports School. Participants undergo sessions focused on improving their skill, technique and fitness. Players have opportunities to be talent-scouted and invited to join the National Intermediate Squad in secondary school.


  • Asian and World Junior Championships
  • Badminton Asia Youth Under 17 and U15 Championships
  • International Age-Group Competitions
  • Singapore International Series
  • National Age-Group Championships

Student-athletes in the School-Within-A-School programme have opportunities to compete in at least three international meets. Alumnae Crystal Wong Jia Ying and Yeo Jia Min are two examples of SWS student-athletes who have benefited from the additional opportunities. In 2015, Jia Min won the Asia Youth U17 Badminton Championships Singles title – the first to win both the U15 and U17 titles. She then partnered Crystal to clinch the U17 Doubles gold medal.


Overseas Training Camps

The Badminton Academy sends its student-athletes for overseas training camps each year. Badminton players train and spar with stronger and more skilful players which allows them to push their boundaries and stretch their potential.

In June 2016, the School-Within-A-School badminton players had the privilege to participate in a training stint in Anhui, China for two weeks. At the end of the year, they spent another two weeks in Thailand, exposing themselves to a higher level of play. The players were able to train in world-class facilities and spar with top shuttlers in their age-group.

In October 2016, the Singapore Sports School also signed a sports exchange  memorandum with Kochi Prefectural Board of Education. Starting from 2017, SWS student-athletes have an additional sparring opportunity with Asian shuttlers on top of the aforementioned overseas training opportunities.

Hosting Overseas Teams

Sports School occasionally hosts overseas teams for training stints. In January 2016, the Badminton Academy hosted the top 12 Japanese badminton players selected by the Japan Institute of Sports Science.

Lower Secondary student-athletes had sparring sessions with the Japanese and also underwent physical testing with them. The training intensity during the five days was optimal. Both teams pushed each other in every training session as the Japanese brought a new dimension into the training sessions conducted by the National Junior Coach of Japan.
