Parents' Nomination For Junior Sports Academy(JSA) Selection Trial 2018


Dear Parent/ Guardian,  

PARENTS’ NOMINATION FOR JUNIOR SPORTS ACADEMY (JSA) SELECTION TRIAL 2018  

 1.            MOE will be conducting the selection trial for interested P4 and P5 students for the Junior Sports Academy (JSA) in Feb/Mar 2018. Schools will be nominating suitable students for the selection trial. However, if you wish to nominate your child for the selection trial, you may also do so by completing the ‘Parent’s Nomination Form’ and return it to the school by 12, February 2018.  

2.            Students should explore, discover and develop their areas of interest and strengths across a wide range of physical activities. MOE seeks to provide broad-based opportunities for students through the Junior Sports Academy (JSA) programme with the following objectives:  
a)    Budding sporting talents will be identified and developed with a broad-based physical sports programme, to strengthen their overall physical competencies and motivation in sports at the primary school level.  
b)    These students will explore and discover their strength and passion in a range of sports at the primary school level, and subsequently to make an informed choice to commit to one of them with more targeted support from schools and relevant sports organisations at the secondary school level and beyond.  

3.            The selection trial will evaluate the child’s general physical ability. There will not be any test on sport-specific skills. Instead, the child’s natural ability of agility, balance, coordination, speed and power will be evaluated. There is no need to train or prepare for the trial. Sufficient time will be given during the trial for students to familiarise themselves with the items used in the evaluation.  

4.            Selected P4 students will participate in a two-year programme (from Primary 4 Semester 2 to Primary 6 Semester 1). They will choose four sports modules to participate in. Each sports module is conducted once a week over one semester, followed up with sports-related workshops at the end of the module. Selected P5 students may participate in a one-year programme and choose 2 sports modules (from Primary 5 Semester 2 to Primary 6 Semester 1). The programme will be conducted mostly at 14 JSA centres hosted in schools near MRT stations and spread across Singapore to facilitate easy access.
