Track And Field Academy
Singapore Sports School’s Track and Field Academy strives to create a premier environment for excellence in youth-athlete development where student-athletes can benefit from world-class facilities and coaching accompanied by ample competition opportunities.
The Academy develops training programmes based on Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model to support each student-athlete. The LTAD model provides broad-based training to maximise the sporting potential of the student-athlete by avoiding early specialisation. This is achieved through focusing on training via the multi-events programme when they enter the Sports School in Secondary 1. The multi-event training approach enables student-athletes to achieve highest technical level upon maturity and helps to reduce the risk of burnout and injuries.
Track and Field Academy student-athletes had the opportunity to hone their skills from the numerous overseas training camps and competition opportunities arranged by the Academy. In addition, Sports School coaches raised their competencies through attending coaching conferences and courses overseas and locally.
