Since its inception in 2004, Singapore Sports School’s Swimming Academy has shown itself to be the pipeline for the national team having produced more than 80 national representatives for Singapore. The Academy continues to groom many youth swimmers who progress into the senior national team. With a deeper collaboration with Singapore Swimming Association and the National Youth Sports Institute (June 2016), the Sports School will be a key training base for the development of youth and national swimmers.
To cater to the needs of the most deserving student-athletes, the Academy customises overseas training programmes to bring out the best in them. Top swimmers have undergone training in China, Japan and South Korea aimed at improving their fitness and potential. The Academy also incorporates sport science into its training to enhance student-athletes’ training and competition performance.
The Swimming Academy works with the National Sports Associations to support student-athletes from three other individual programmes in Aquatics – Diving, Water Polo and Artistic Swimming – who have attained notable achievements.
