SAA Carding explanation

Senior Carding 2014/15

SAA Senior Carding Criteria for 2014/15 will be based on SEA Games 2013 results. If athlete meets the required marks during the period of 2013 SEA Games – 30 June 2014, athlete will be entitled to carding from the month of meeting the mark till 31 Dec 2014.

SAA Senior Carding 2014/15 will be reviewed on a half-yearly basis starting on 30 June 2014. The next review will be on 31 Dec 2014. If athlete meets the required marks during the period of 1 July 2014 – 31 Dec 2014, athlete will be entitled to carding from the month of meeting the mark till 30 June 2015.

After review: If any Athlete’s carding status changes within the carding category, both the Athlete and Coach will be paid accordingly. If an Athlete drops out of the carding status, both their carding allowances will cease until the Athlete meets the carding requirement again. Carding will then be reinstated and SAA will back pay the allowance for that Quarter. (January Quarter, April Quarter, July Quarter, October Quarter) If athlete is not able to maintain performance without valid reason/s, SAA’s Training and Selection Committee may recommend the stopping of funding.

Youth Carding 2015

Carding for Youth Athletes preparing for the SEA Youth Championships 2014 will be based on the 2013 SEA Youth Championship results. In order to qualify for Youth category carding, Athletes preparing for the SEA Youth Championships must be age-eligible to compete in the particular SEA Youth Championships. Otherwise they will not be carded under Youth Carding even though they meet the mark.

Carding allowance will only apply for the period of 3 months prior to SEA Youth 2014 Championships. Athletes will only qualify for the carding allowance if they are selected to be in the final team and having successfully competed in the championships.

Limit on carding allowance

There is no limit as to the number of events for which any coach or athlete can receive carding allowance. As long as the Athlete meets the requirement, both the Athlete and Coach will be paid. However, an Athlete/Coach will only be eligible for carding in his/her highest carding category, if he/she qualifies for carding for more than 2 categories in the same event.

Carding Review

SAA’s carding system will be under review yearly or as necessary. SAA reserves the right to review and amend the qualifying criteria for carding in any Category at any time. Athletes will be transferred from Youth to Junior or from Junior to Senior as they cross the age limit. This transfer will affect their carding status. They will have to meet the respective carding criteria for their new age category.

Last year in December, SAA nominated and sent coach Tan Wei Leong to the USATF/IAAF Academy for Sprints & Hurdles Course, which was held at IMG Academy – Bradenton, Florida.

Below is his write-up on his continuing coaching education experience.

tan-wei-leongRepublic Polytechnic facilitator Tan Wei Leong successfully completed for the first part of the 2013 International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Academy Diploma (Sprints and Hurdles) course, held in Bradenton, Florida, USA on 4-18 December, 2013.

The submission of a report for an 8-month unsupervised practicum in Singapore will complete the course in 2014.

What makes this particular course special is that it will be conducted by the preeminent names in track and field, including legendary coaches Loren Seagrave, John Smith and Gunter Lange.

Thanks to the endorsement and support of the Singapore Athletic Association (SAA), I was able to meet and learn directly from sprint coach gurus in the US.

The course followed a gruelling 11-hour a day schedule covering both theory and practical sessions over seven days.

Attendees’ performances were evaluated on the basis of four assessments: a pre-course written assignment, a poster presentation of each coach’s working environment (I presented “Singapore Athletics – The Current State of Play” in the form of a board game), a practical coaching component, and a final presentation of each coach’s proposed unsupervised practicum to be carried out over the following eight months.

For this first part of the course, I was blessed with a score a total of 44/45 marks.

The remaining 55 marks will be awarded based on the merits of the final submission comprising a full reflection journal and case study report for the unsupervised practicum. For this component, I will report on the application of cutting edge analytics and an interdisciplinary approach to the coaching of Singapore top sprinters.

On the future of Singapore athletics, I truly believe that Singapore can excel in track and field in the next few decades if all the hearts and minds involved – coaches, teachers, scientists, parents, fans and the athletes themselves – are aligned and fully dedicated to training and studies. All parties must play their part in putting our athletes on the winners’ podium.
