Singapore Sports School Badminton Academy has a close partnership with Singapore Badminton Association. About 80 per cent of our badminton players, upon entering the Sports School, are inducted into SBA’s National Intermediate Squad, giving our student-athletes an advantage in entering the national senior team.
Badminton Academy student-athletes in the School-Within-A-School programme are coached by NIS Youth Coach Kelvin Ho who is seconded from SBA. 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.
Student-athletes in the SWS programme undergo extended training sessions during the day and attend academic lessons in the evening. This resembles the training structures in other countries which have established outcomes in sports such as Badminton and Table Tennis.
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 in the "Programmes and Competitions" tab.
Interested applicants may find out more about admission into the Badminton Academy from the Information Sheet or at this page: https://www.sportsschool.edu.sg/admissions/admission-by-sport/secondary-school
The Badminton Academy has produced 51 Singapore national representatives in the open category.

Jason Claims U19 Crown
2018 Singapore International Youth Series
Posted: 14 December 2018
On 1 December 2017, Jason Teh Jia Heng suffered a defeat to Taiwanese Yang Su Li in two sets (14-21, 19-21) in the 2017 Singapore Youth International Series Boys Under 19 Singles quarter-final match. In the same tournament exactly one year on, Jason returned with a vengeance, determined to triumph over his Taiwanese opponent. This time, both shuttlers were tied after two sets before Jason proved his mettle to win the deciding set convincingly, allowing his rival to chalk up just eight points against him in the third and final set.
Jason, a Singapore Sports School alumnus, enjoyed a smooth run in the U19 Singles event, save for the scare in his semi-final bout against Su Li. He eventually claimed the crown after defeating Yang Yang of Taiwan 2-0 (21-12, 21-12) in 36 minutes in the Final.
Sports School’s present and past shuttlers won 1 gold and 1 silver for Singapore at the 2018 edition of the tournament from 26 November to 2 December 2018. Secondary 2 Badminton Academy student-athletes Nge Joo Jie and Ryan Tan Rui Yang paired up for the Boys U15 Doubles to clinch the silver medal. The Sports School duo also encountered their fair share of challenges during the competition in their last three matches. Joo Jie and Ryan showed near-flawless partnership when they clawed their way back on several occasions to meet reigning Asian Youth U15 Doubles champions Justin Hoh and Muhammad Fazriq Mohamad Razif of Malaysia.
Having narrowly lost the first set 21-23 in their semi-final bout against Indonesians Muhammad Dzaki Saputra and Naufal Hery Alaudin Jamil, Joo Jie’s and Ryan’s never-give-up attitude gave them the next two sets (21-11, 25-23) to emerge victorious in the intense match, and place them in the final. The Sports School shuttlers eventually settled for the runner-up title after losing 1-2 (21-15, 14-21, 17-21) to the Asian Youth age-group champions.

Student-athletes in the School-Within-A-School programme have opportunities to compete in at least three international meets. Post-secondary student-athletes 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.
