The Singapore Athletic Association recently had a gathering at ITE College East, Simei, last Saturday, with parents, athletes and coaches in attendance.
It was a meeting for the association to recap the season we had. Thank you for those who came down, and the exchange of ideas and feedback in the dialogue session has been insightful for both parties.
We do hope to have more of such sessions, and we’ll update you via the website of our quarterly meeting in the future. Below is the media files for those who missed the event.
