Sembcorp sponsors 7th SEA Youth Athletics Championships

With the sponsorship, SAA is using the annual meet to identify the next athletics star for SEA Games 2015

(Singapore, 27 March 2012) – Some 400 athletes from the region will be heading to Singapore next month for the 7th Southeast Asian (SEA) Youth Athletics Championships.

Singapore may be hosting the championship for the second time, but it is still an event of several firsts: for the first time, the Singapore Athletic Association (SAA) has secured close to $200,000 in sponsorship for the event.

As part of its initiatives to give back to the community and support the development of young, local sports talent, Sembcorp Industries is sponsoring $150,000 towards organising the SEA Youth Athletics Championships.

These athletes from Southeast Asia, aged 16 or 17 as of the end of this year, will be competing at Bishan Stadium from 28 to 29 April 2012.

Said Secretary General of SAA, Alex Louis, “SAA is very grateful for Sembcorp’s sponsorship to help make the 7th SEA Youth Athletics Championships a successful event, following their prior efforts in other sports. It is an important event for all participating athletes who are using the competition as a platform to compete and train to succeed on bigger stages which is a dream for many of our athletes.”

Said Sembcorp’s Executive Vice President of Singapore and ASEAN (Utilities), Ng Meng Poh, “As a home-grown company, we are very pleased to support our national youth athletes and the 7th SEA Youth Athletics Championships. This event is all the more significant as it helps SAA identify potential athletes who will go on to make Singapore proud. We are glad that, through our sponsorship, we are contributing towards SAA’s efforts to groom the future of Singapore’s athletic talent. This sponsorship also marks Sembcorp’s ongoing commitment to contribute to Singapore’s effort in nurturing young sportsmen and sportswomen to represent the nation.”

Another sponsor, Stamford Tyres, is providing an additional $30,000 for the meet.

SAA expands talent pool with biggest contingent ever for SEA Youth Athletics Championships

SAA is set to send its biggest contingent for the competition, with two male and two female athletes expected for each of the 36 events.

As part of the association’s continued efforts to develop the talent pool and identify the next athletics star for SEA Games 2015, performances of all youth athletes at the SEA Youth Athletics Championships will be monitored closely.

Past medalists from junior and youth SEA sporting events such as the long jump national record holder, Matthew Goh, and the top female hurdler, Dipna Lim-Prasad, have gone on to break national records and represent the nation at the SEA Games. Goh was a two-time SEA Junior Champion in 2008 and 2009, while Lim-Prasad won three medals at the 2007, 2008 and 2009 SEA Junior meet.

Said SAA’s Secretary General Alex Louis, “As the national sport association for athletics, it is important that we continue to develop our talent pool and prepare these young athletes for bigger regional meets. We are confident that there will be youth athletes who will move up the ranks like their seniors, and do Singapore proud at SEA Games 2015.”

The final squad for the SEA Youth Athletics Championship will be announced in April.

Dear Coaches & Athletes,

We are in the midst of arranging our final selection for our Singapore Sea Youth Team and the last major event for the qualification and selection will be at the Singapore National School Championship.

Because both the U18 Hammer and U18 1000m boys and girls event are not contested at the National School Championship and to be fair to the athletes who are keen to be selected, SAA will be organizing a special competition trial for these 2 events. The final results will be added to the previous results contested in our SAA series and the top 2 or 3 ranked athletes will be recommended for the team.

We would like you to register now so that we know how many are keen to be selected for the U18 Hammer and U18 1000m boys and girls event at the Singapore Sea Youth Team.

The tentative date for the trails will be on 14 April at 9am. Venue to be confirm.

Wish you all the very best in this coming School Championship and also for those who are keen to register for these 2 events, have a good rest and recovery.

7 Apr 2012 (Saturday) is the closing date for the SEA Youth trial registration. Please register your interest with us at events@singaporeathletics.org.sg, or use our online contact form.

To further accomplish Singapore Athletic Association’s vision to develop more coaches, SAA has signed on Republic Polytechnic to expand the talent pool for coaching athletics in Singapore.

Diploma in Sports Coaching students from RP are now able to receive SAA certification upon completing coaching courses conducted by SAA. The new Kids Athletics Satellite Centre in RP is one of the outlets to provide students the opportunity to pick up coaching skills from SAA coaches.

The centre in RP is also a first for SAA as it provides hands on experience and mentorship programme. Students will go through a five-day course and clock 30 hours of mentorship with SAA coaches. Following which, the students will be certified as a Kids’ Athletics Instructor and teach kids aged between 7 – 12 years old basic athletic and agility skills.

SAA also conducts Athletics Technical Official Course and the IAAF Level 1 Coaching course for RP students who want to pursue athletics coaching further.

In order to ensure a continued supply of young athletes, it is important for athletes to have an inspiring, encouraging and experience coach who will help the athlete on his sporting journey. Individuals or schools who are interested to find out more about SAA’s coaching programme can contact SAA for more information.
