Pre-Singapore Sports School Programmes

LEARN-TO-SHOOT PROGRAMME

Singapore Sports School’s Shooting Academy delivers a comprehensive Learn-To-Shoot (LTS) Programme every year with the aim of introducing primary school pupils to the sport. Using a systemised curriculum, participants are introduced to simple and modified shooting techniques suitable for young children who are new to the sport. Primary school pupils with potential to excel at shooting will be invited to join the Shooting Academy at Secondary 1.

Currently, the Singapore Shooting Association (SSA) is jointly running this programme with us. Please refer to SSA’s website regarding schedules, fees and other details.

PISTOL AND RIFLE TRAINING CAMP (EUROPE)

Besides regular overseas competitions, we also send our shooters to overseas training camps in Europe. The Academy has been to centres in Germany and Montenegro who have experts that provide gun maintenance services. Student-athletes have their guns serviced and fine-tuned, and pellets matched to their guns to increase the accuracy of each shot. Postural analysis and eye testing are also conducted. Sports School’s shooters have also had opportunities to train alongside Olympic and world-class shooters.
