Local and Overseas Competitions

FINA WORLD CUP

Eighty per cent of our Swimming Academy student-athletes have competed at the FINA World Cup. The FINA World Cup attracts world-class swimmers such as Chad le Clos and Katinka Hosszu. Sports School swimmers competing in the open competition are exposed to swimming against rivals at the elite level which stretches their potential.

SOUTH EAST ASIAN (AGE-GROUP) SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS

Twenty-five percent of our Swimming Academy student-athletes have represented Singapore in the South East Asian (Age-Group) Swimming Championships yearly.

SINGAPORE NATIONAL AGE-GROUP (SNAG) CHAMPIONSHIPS AND SINGAPORE NATIONAL SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS

Held at the OCBC Aquatics Centre, the SNAG Championships sees some of Singapore's top local swimmers battling it out for qualification for the upcoming World Championships and major Games, such as the SEA Games. The annual Singapore National Swimming Championships provide a valuable platform for our student-athletes to cultivate values and develop character through sports. This is in line with the Council's motto of "Character in Sporting Excellence".


Special Programmes

ULSAN SPORTS SCIENCE SECONDARY SCHOOL SPORTS EXCHANGE

As part of the Sports Exchange programme since 2016, the Swimming Academy sends our student-athletes to Ulsan Sports Science School every alternate year. The purpose of the exchange programme is to provide greater training opportunities and exposure for our swimmers to train with their counterparts from South Korea. With cultural immersion included in the programme, the exchange will value add to the overall educational experience of our student-athletes in Sports School.

THAILAND SPORTS SCHOOL GAMES (TSSG)

Since 2006, the Singapore Sports School has always sent the student-athletes from the Swimming Academy for the TSSG for exposure and good learning experience. The four days swimming meet has always been meaningful for our swimmers to compete and interact with their counterparts from the various sports schools in Thailand and the region around such as Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia.
