Each person must also like SDSC’s Facebook page for each ‘like’ on the nominee’s photo to be valid. Scores will be tabulated as of Wednesday, 11.59pm, 15 July 2020.

The SDSA 2020 is a celebration of our athletes’ achievements and contributions made to disability sports by the community. The past few months have been riddled with uncertainty. As our athletes return to training, we seek your kind support to lend words of encouragement to them. If you are able to, please donate to the SDSC under Project Rebound. SDSA 2020 is the first event under Project Rebound – where we hope to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic even stronger. More information about Project Rebound is available here. Thank you very much for your support.


Singapore Disability Sports Awards 2019
Singapore Disability Sports Awards 2020 was held virtually

The Singapore Disability Sports Awards (SDSA) was brought back in 2019, after the last Sports Awards had been held more than a decade ago in 2008. The only other time that the achievements of the para sports community were recognised was in 2014, when SDSC had given out a set of Outstanding and Meritorious Achievement awards as part of its 40th anniversary.

With the commitment made in 2019 to continue holding the SDSA every year, SDSC remains committed to celebrating the achievements of the wider para sports community. This will allow us to recognise the efforts of the support system of coaches, volunteers and partners, and provide an opportunity to celebrate moments from the past year. In doing so, we hope the stories will inspire greater awareness for para sports and inspire other persons with disabilities (PWDs) to be open to the idea of participating in sports.
