ACSplore (RECREATIONAL)

Rationale

ACSplore is aligned with the national direction of : 

    • Preventing early specialization and burn-out in youth sports
    • Developing a strong foundation for broad-based development,
    • Reducing the stakes of competition
Instead of the Recreational Sports CCAs, ACS(J) will offer modular sports CCA programme to all Primary 3 to primary 5 pupils - ACSplore

ACSPLORE FAQ

1) Will my son be doing the same two sports in the subsequent years? 
As the Modular Sports programme aims to provide exposure, we do not encourage boys to repeat the same sport module. 

2) Will my son have the opportunity to move to ACScite in the subsequent years? 
Ongoing observation will be done by teachers and coaches during the ACSplore programme. If your son is observed to be ready, recommendation will be made for him to specialize in a specific ACScite sport. P3 to P5 boys may be recommended to move from ACSplore to ACScite if the coaches and teachers see that they are ready.
 
3) Will my son get to choose his sports for ACSplore? 
Your son may list two choices for each category 
e.g. Individual Sport - 1st choice Table Tennis, 2nd choice Badminton
Team Sport - 1st choice Hockey, 2nd choice Rugby. 
We will do our best to allocate your son one of his two choices.

4) Can my son skip the ACSplore phase and go straight into ACScite?
No. All boys must have gone through ACSplore for at least a year before the coaches/teachers recommend them to go into ACScite.  Exceptions are made for boys who are selected for the national youth squad that is run by the official National Sports Association.

5) When will the ACSplore sessions be held?
These sessions will last 1.5 hour and will be held on Mon, Wed, Thu or Fri any time between 2 to 6pm.
