SPH Foundation National Inclusive Swimming Championships 2017

Comments Off on SPH Foundation National Inclusive Swimming Championships 2017

The National Inclusive Swimming Championships (NISC) formerly known as the National Para Swimming Championships is an annual swimming championship sponsored by the SPH Foundation and organized by the Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC). 2017 will see the seventh year of SPH Foundation sponsorship, as well as the 36th edition of the championships.

The competition aims are creating opportunities for persons with disabilities to swim at a competitive level. Annually, over 100 para-athletes from  special schools, associations and clubs are expected at the event. The competition also serves as a platform for SDSC coaches and officials to scout for potential candidates to nurture and enlist into the National squad in hopes that they will be able to proudly represent Singapore at international competitions. Outstanding performers may be selected to represent Singapore in regional and international competitions. Previous editions of the competition have produced National Paralympians such as Theresa Goh, a multiple-gold medalist at the ASEAN Para Games and Yip Pin Xiu, the first Singaporean to win a Gold Medal at the Paralympics and world record-breaking swimmer.

OBJECTIVES

  • Creating opportunities for the disabled to compete
  • Recruiting potential newcomers to national development or elite training squad
  • Selecting best athletes to represent Singapore for major international competitions
