Dear Coaches & Athletes,

We apologize that we had to take down the initial posting we did for this announcement. We received feedback from coaches & athletes and please note of the amendments.

SAA is keen to launch their new initiative mentioned on Jan 6 during the SAA Appreciation Night Party. The creation of a National Team, National Junior Team and National Youth Team identity now is critical to the success of athletics in Singapore. We believe that through this initiative we will increase our base of athletes and coaches and their performances to help achieve better results at the 2015 Sea Games and beyond.

The formation of the 3 teams is important for SAA to motivate, monitor, and manage athletes’ and coaches’ expectations throughout your athletics career. We realize that none of you would really call yourself a national team athlete unless you represent Singapore in one way or another and we want to erase this mental barrier.

A national team member should be someone who is already performing at a high level and aspires to represent his/her country in the near future. We also want the Youth & Junior athletes who are our future national athletes to be excited as well. Thus the creation of the National Youth & National Junior Teams. We feel that this will provide you with the opportunity to continue to be proud of your own success and status in your own category.

We have to create an entry point for the 3 teams and have been debating very hard how to start off on a right note. We didn’t want to make it too difficult for many to be able to get into the teams and at the same time it should not be too easy such that too many make the teams and thus dilute the prestige and honour of being in the teams. We have been consistent in using IAAF scoring points in all our rankings and selection in 2011 and we believe it’s the best way to be transparent and fair. It also provides everyone a convenient way to track their own progress and selection and would find it easier to accept the final decision.

Because points vary from event to event and in some events they are really very low, it was very difficult to fix a common point. Therefore, the proposed entry criteria points are:

  • National Team – 5% Off SEA Games 2011 Bronze Medal Mark of their own event
  • National Junior Team – 5% Off Asian Junior 2010 6th Placing Mark of their own event
  • National Youth Team – 5% Off Sea Youth 2011 Bronze Medal Mark of their own event

Note: There will be no entry criteria selection for Relays for now and selection for relay squad will be announced at a later date. The fastest 6 runners at the designated meet/s will be selected to form the relay squad and will run only the relay unless they had also qualified for the individual event.

New weights will be used for Youth Girls in the Shot Put, Hammer and Javelin. Qualifying mark for Youth Girls are based on old weights. But SAA will accept the distance using old weights

For more information please refer to the attachment:

All athletes who have made the mark from their 2011 results are provisionally selected but all need to meet their respective marks again during 2012 competitions that are sanctioned and recognized by SAA. Once athletes are confirmed in the squad, they will be offered an agreement and with it the privileges and benefits of being in the national team, national junior team and national youth team. We are now finalizing the privileges and benefits. The basics would include team uniform, overseas competition, training camp, priority of using SAA facility and equipment. We are working on it.

Note: Currently there’s no 800m & 1500m qualifiers for youth being that sea youth selection consideration this year and next year would be different.
