FAQs for Selection Trials to NTC

 

Question: What are the phases / commitment if my child gets selected?

 

Our NTC selection trials follow a Phase 1 – 2 – 3 model.

 

Phase 1 refers to the 1-day selection trial, where gymnasts are selected for Phase 2.

 

Phase 2 refers to a 2-week training stint at the National Training Centre (NTC) with our NTC coaches. Gymnasts currently with another gymnastics club or school may continue training at their club/ school, over & above the sessions stipulated at the NTC.

Phase 2 training commitment ranges between 3 to 4 sessions per week, 3 to 4 hours per session. The specific training schedule will be made known to those successfully selected from Phase 1.

 

Phase 3 refers to a 3-month period, typical commitment is between 3 to 6 sessions per week, 3 to 4 hours per session, depending on the age group & skill level of the gymnast. Further details (expectations, training days and timings etc) will be made known to participants who have been selected from Phase 2. Gymnasts are expected to train solely with the NTC during Phase 3 for consistency purposes.

 

 

Question: Is there an alternative date if we cannot make the given selection trial date?

 

We do not conduct separate open selections for gymnasts who are unable to attend.

 

However, we will be happy for her to join us in our next round of selections. Our selection trials (phase 1) comes in 2 types:

 

  1. Open trial
    • Trial dates are regularly updated on our website at least 1 month in advance, based on the structural demands of our National Training Centre (NTC)
    • Open for public sign-up.
  2. Trial by invitation
    • Trials by invitation are for gymnasts who have been talent scouted via local training camps or annual competitions National C’ships in March and Singapore Open in June.
    • All other trial by invitation will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

 

 

 

Question: My child is unable to stay throughout the session as she has to leave early for another commitment (tuition, ballet etc) – will she be able to leave early?

 

We strongly recommend that gymnasts stay the entire session to complete all testing stations. This ensures that our team obtains an all-rounded assessment of each child, which has an impact on the selection outcome for your child.

 

Participants will be randomly assigned to groups to rotate around all testing stations.

 

 

Question: What are the training days and timings of the various teams at NTC?

 

Most teams train Monday through Saturday, between 3.30pm to 8pm. Timings and days will vary accordingly depending on the Phase requirement.

 

 

Question: Where is the NTC training location?

 

Women’s Artistic NTC is currently at MOE Physical Education Branch (21 Evans Road Singapore 259366) gymnasium.
