Together with hosting the 7th SEA Youth Athletics Championship, newly introduced incentives is part of Association’s drive to groom young talents

(Singapore, 21 April 2012) – Singapore Athletic Association’s policies are in place to develop young athletes, as the association launches a youth reward and carding scheme ahead of next weekend’s 7th Southeast Asian Youth Athletics Championships.

The nation’s 81 representatives stand a chance to vie for the newly introduced reward and carding allowances the SAA has planned for youths.

Together with Singapore hosting the 44-event SEA Youth Athletics Championship, incentives are part of Singapore Athletic Association’s (SAA) youth development efforts to nurture the future of Singapore’s Athletes.

All Youth record breakers and their coaches will each receive a $100 incentive upon ratification of their records. Carded under-20 Junior and under-18 Youth athletes and their coaches will also receive funding of up to $80 monthly.

SAA’s development and training policies are on the right track, with the success of Singapore’s young 4x100m Men’s relay team. SAA is on the lookout to nurture the next relay team, with a $500 bonus to be shared amongst the Youth relay team record breakers. Coaches will also receive the same amount. Carded Junior and Youth Athletes of the relay teams as well as their coaches will enjoy a $300 allowance each.

Said SAA President Tang Weng Fei, “The future of athletics lies in our youths. The rewards and carding allowances scheme is a recognition of a job well done by the Association! This should mean more than actual dollars to the athletes. It also complements our development plans where the SEA Youth Athletics Championships is part of SAA’s Youth development pathway, and to prepare for our future.”

Rewards and carding allowances for senior athletes have also grown, with the inclusion of allowances for senior athletes meeting the SEA Games silver medal mark. Senior relay teams who break the national record or carding standards will also receive a bonus. (Refer to Annex for more information).

12-medal target at SEA Youth Athletics Championships

The SEA Youth Athletics Championship continues to be an important race for young athletes as they gain ground and experience for sustained growth in the sport.

Following Singapore’s four golds, three silvers and four bronzes haul last year, SAA hopes that the squad will bring in a dozen medals at this year’s meet.

Said Mr Tang, “The Thais, the Vietnamese and the Indonesians are our closest competitors. Our athletes will benchmark themselves against them and use this competition to improve.”

Medalists and their coaches will receive a monetary incentive to help defray their training costs. Kindly sponsored by Mr Tang, $300, $200 and $100 for Gold, Silver and Bronze medalists respectively will be given, with relay teams receiving double the amount.

Top athletes from SAA’s Track and Field series and the National’s Schools Track and Field Championships were identified to take part in this event. Pole Vaulters Carmel Teo (Henderson Secondary School) and Chan Sheng Yao (Hwa Chong Institution), 100m Hurdler Jannah Wong (Katong Convent), High Jumper Benjamin Ong (Singapore Sports School) will compete for an even better showing. Returning Youth athletes who are set to blaze the trail include sprinters Eugenia Tan and Veronica Shanti Pereira (Singapore Sports School), and 400m and 4x400m relay runner Charlene Oh (CHIJ Toa Payoh).

Said sprinter Eugenia Tan who is also running in the 4x100m event, “I’m very nervous but excited about next week’s competition. I’ll continue to train hard to maintain my form and target a Top 4 position in the 100m event.”

All apparel for athletes, coaches, team managers and officials are sponsored by FBT.

(1) All athletes (through their respective coaches) who had made known their request for selection for any particular Meet, will be ranked.

(2) Ranking will be by the Priority Tier System (PTS).

    (i) Using the PTS we will rank each athlete within his/her category of Meets (E.g: 2012 Meets where only Seniors are invited. The 2012 Asian Junior Championships. The 2012 SEA Youth Championships).

    (ii) PTS will be in effect for 2012/2013 Seasons.

(3) SAA’s final nominations and selection will be based on the quota given by the host country.

(4)

    (i) Athletes’ results from July 1 2011 till June 30 2012 will be used for consideration for any Meet scheduled from 1 Jan 2012 till June 30 2012.

    (iii) Athletes’ results from Jan 1 2012 till June 30 2012 will be considered for Meets that are scheduled from 1 July 2012 till 31 Dec 2012.

(5) Priority Tier System (PTS)

(6) Names of Athletes who meet the above criteria will be submitted to the TRAINING & SELECTION COMMITTEE for consideration to be selected for the respective the Meets:

(7) Co-payment Scheme & Self-Funded Categories:

    (i) Athletes who are not in Tier 1 or Tier 2, may submit their requests for participation in such Meets. The Training & Selection Committee will study the merit of each submission and decide on extent of co-payment or self-funding.

    (ii) SAA will reimburse the air ticket (economy class) for athletes who travel under the co-payment and ‘self-funded’ categories, if he/she meets the respective qualifying mark at the particular Meet.

(8) If two Athletes from different events have achieved the respective qualifying marks and are vying for one spot on the team, IAAF points will be used to decide the “better” performance (See examples below). This system will be used to decide the “better” of two Athletes within a particular Tier.

Example to show why using the IAAF Points System is fairer in deciding “better” performance between different events.

100m 10.9s
5% off absolute is 10.9s + 0.545s = 11.445s
5% off IAAF points 10.90s (916 points) = 870.2 points is 11.06s

Shot Put 12m
5% off absolute is 15m – 0.75m = 14.25m
5% off IAAF points 12m (824 points) = 782.8 points is 14.30m

Pole Vault 4.50m
5% off absolute is 4.50m – 0.225m = 4.275m
5% off IAAF points 4.50m (839 points) = 797.05 points is 4.34m

5000m 15min
5% off absolute is 15mins (900s + 45s) = 945s (15:45s)
5% off IAAF points 15mins (808 points) = 767.6 points is 15:14.54s
