4 schools launch Junior Sports Academies, nurturing students' talent in sports

The Junior Sports Academies officially opened their doors on Saturday.

Four schools were chosen in the pilot programme to nurture talent in sports - which include badminton, netball, and swimming.

At Chung Cheng High School, its wushu programme kicked off to a good start.

40 Primary 5 students from 10 schools started their training on Saturday, including some who had no prior background in martial arts.

The Academies aim to stretch the pool of sporting talent in Singapore by targeting athletes from as young as 11.

Some parents said it complements the training the children receive in their own schools.

And while the going may get tough, students said they're not going to give up.

One student said: "I think it will be interesting and good to learn."

Meanwhile a parent said: "With regards to whether he can do the wushu, there is only one way to find out and that is to try." -CNA/vm
